As the world rekindles its love for travel and adventure, one concerning trend emerging is a notable uptick in bed bug infestations. These resilient pests have managed to infiltrate our homes, thanks to their hitchhiking abilities. Travel, the primary culprit, unwittingly transports these tiny troublemakers on people, clothing, luggage and personal belongings. And no one wants to endure bed bug bites!
Understanding bed bugs
Bed bugs are no ordinary household pests. To effectively combat these pesky invaders, it’s essential to understand their characteristics and behaviours. For one thing, they are notorious for their stealthy nature, and as nocturnal bloodsuckers, adept at concealing themselves in cracks and crevices during the day. Their flattened, oval bodies enable them to slip into small spaces such as mattresses and furniture. They can also survive without a blood meal for several months. Their ability to remain concealed and their rapid reproduction rate make them a formidable adversary for homeowners. When dealing with them, it’s crucial to have a solution that can address the issue comprehensively.
They’re are not just a nuisance; they can have adverse effects on your family’s health.
Health risks of bed bug bites
- Bed bugs bites are itchy, which can lead to skin infections if scratched.
- Prolonged exposure to them can cause sleep deprivation, leading to fatigue and heightened stress levels.
- Allergic reactions to bed bugs bites are not uncommon, with symptoms ranging from itching and swelling to severe allergic reactions in rare cases.
