Preventing Bed Bugs From Hijacking Your House

August 15, 2015

As a species, humans often feel like we are on the top of the food chain. After all, we can kill just about anything that lives on this planet and we eat a lot of them. However, there are some things that love to feed on us, and some of them even love to live where you sleep.


A person eats a few spiders each year in his sleep

That is a urban myth, since spiders don’t really like going near us, let alone walk on us while we sleep. Bed bugs on the other hand, do just about that. They prefer to get out of their hiding places about an hour before sunrise, move fast towards you and make sure they bite you in a way you will not feel a thing. After a few minutes, they are bloated and try to get back as fast as they can.

That said, you may need to look for professionals like bed bug removal in Phoenix, but before you know you need them, you first have to realize if your house is infested. The easiest thing to do is to gather up any clutter to remove additional hiding spots for them, and then start looking in any place that could offer darkness, isolation and proximity to places where people and pets rest.

Finding the bugs before it is late

When you are facing a bug infestation, time is of the essence. Although there is no known disease that they can transmit, they can still pose health issues. From simple things like bacterial infections when you scratch the bite marks, to more serious things like asthma from the discarded skin they leave behind as they mature.

In some cases, it also depends on how sensitive the skin of the person is, as well as how their immune system is going to react to the bites. That can lead to mild allergic reaction that although they are generally not a problem, they can be irritating to say the least. And depending on your health condition and constitution, that may only be the beginning.

As a final note, it does not really matter if you have concerns about your health or not. In the end, there are bugs living in your house and they are constantly reproducing. Once you find it that to be the case, then do call professionals to do bed bug removal in Mesa. It is best to catch them while they are in small numbers than to have to throw out anything infested and destroyed by them later on.
