Bed Bugs Can Be Brought into Your Home
Bed bugs are great at climbing into luggage or attaching themselves onto other belongings of your to gain access into your home. Bed bugs will latch onto clothing, suitcases and other personal items while you are on vacation, a business trip or other outing, and you will be the one that carries them right through your front door. Many homeowners have unknowingly brought bed bugs into their home when purchasing used furniture from a yard sale or online. Bed bugs can hide in cushion creases on furniture to go unnoticed and while that used sofa may be the couch you needed, it came with visitors.
Early Signs of Bed Bugs
There are a handful of signs that may indicate bed bugs are already inside of your home. Bed bugs are extremely sneaky due to their size and nocturnal nature. Bed bugs are often compared to the shape and size of an apple seed, flat, round and dark in color. This appearance gives the bed bug an advantage when it comes to hiding out during the day. Bed bugs are nocturnal and will patiently await the night time when you go to sleep and they can crawl out of their hiding space, latch onto your skin and begin sucking your blood until they are engorged. They will then detach themselves and head back to their hiding space until the next feeding. Bed bugs will often leave blood stains behind on your sheets or bedding. They will also leave bite marks on your body. Another sign that bed bugs may be inside of your home is that they leave a musty foul odor behind. Bed bug casings can also be left behind in mattress creases and other areas.
