Note: Please do NOT feel embarrassed if you have bed bugs. Bed bugs have nothing to do with sanitation nor are they associated with having a dirty home. You or anyone in your family can bring a pregnant female bed bug home from just about anywhere at any time. Bed bugs are known to not only frequent hotels but are also very prevalent in college dorm rooms, movie theaters, cabs, busses, gyms, school locker areas, nursing homes etc.. You can even have them brought into your home from friends or family members who have an issue themselves but are again, just too embarrassed to say or have anything done about it.
So how can you tell if you have a bedbug?
Waking up itchy is a very common symptom, especially if you recently brought home a used bed or couch. You may also observe bloodstains on your sheets or pillowcases from being bitten. In addition, the excrement of bedbugs can cause dark, rusty stains on sheets, mattresses, bedclothes, walls, and anywhere else they may travel, and their glands produce a rather offensive musty stench. Be on the lookout for egg shells or dry bedbug skins in any areas where the bedbugs can hide. If you find any of these warning signs, do yourself and everyone in your household a favor and call Ford's Hometown Services immediately.
Bed Bug Signs:
Typically, the first sign of an infestation is the appearance of small brownish or reddish dots on bedding, linens, or mattresses. Also, heavy infestations can result in an odor described as "buggy" or sweetish smelling. Bed bug bites result in red, itchy welts with a lighter red ring around them. They feed on any exposed skin while you’re sleeping, such as hands, face, neck, and shoulders. Bed bugs crawl into small cracks and crevices or voids in beds or furniture to hide and lay eggs during the day and then wait for their next blood meal.
Getting Rid of Bed Bugs—What Should You Do?
Eliminating bed bugs isn’t easy, and typical do-it-yourself methods don’t work well. It makes more sense to call a professional pest control company that has experience in bed bug elimination. Professionals like us will apply the right bed bug treatment to the right places. This will help ensure that you aren’t on the menu tonight.
