DON'T LET THE BED BUGS BITE!
Bedbugs are a blood sucking parasite that can create great discomfort as their bites can occur on any part of the body. These pests feed at night and hide during the day and often go unnoticed until their numbers are significant. They are reddish brown in color and often resemble a tick, but bedbugs have 6 legs instead of the 8 legs found on ticks.
The occurrence of bedbugs is on the rise, in part, due to increased international travel and the influx of persons from outside the U.S. These parasites are hitchhikers that often spread to new locations via luggage, furniture and even clothing. Bedbugs can flatten their body and move through tiny cracks and crevices without detection.
Some signs of bedbug infestation include small, dark blood spots on bedding and unexplained bites or welts on the body. Since bedbugs can feed without being detected, they can increase their population in a short period of time. Bedbugs hide in mattress folds and tags, behind electrical outlet covers, ceiling plates of light and fans, in cracks and crevices, under baseboards, in and behind pictures hanging on the wall, night stands, bed frames, in boxes or items under the bed, in dresser drawers, and in closets and furniture. They stay close to the host they are feeding on, but as their numbers increase, they spread out to other areas.
To prevent these pests, you should avoid bringing home second hand or "curb side" furniture and mattresses, reduce clutter, and check hotel rooms for signs of these pests so they don't hitch a ride home with you. Mattress covers are a great way to seal out these pests - they will eventually die without a blood meal.
