7 things to know about the blood-sucking critters!
We've all heard the saying "Sleep tight and don't let the bed bugs bite." That simple childhood rhyme has a basis in truth. These tiny pests have a taste for human blood that draws them into dwellings such as homes, apartments, and hotels.
Beware of Bed Bugs:
Most bed bugs are found within eight feet of a place where a human is resting. But as their population grows, so does their footprint in your home. That's why it's important to check the following areas:
- WHAT ARE BED BUGS?
- BED BUGS LOVE TRAVELLERS
- WHAT ARE THE SYMPTOMS?
- DO YOUR RESEARCH BEFORE YOU TRAVEL
- HOW DO YOU CHECK FOR BED BUGS?
- DON'T LET THEM GET INTO YOUR LUGGAGE
- WHAT IF THEY GET INTO YOUR LUGGAGE?
With your flashlight and credit card, search and probe crevices to check for bed bugs. If you see these pests moving, capture them with adhesive tape. Wipe the area with soapy water to clean away any dead bed bugs, droppings, eggs, and shed skins. Also consider vacuuming the area for an even deeper cleaning. If you have one or more rooms with substantial clutter or items strewn about, you're providing bed bugs with a haven. The simple act of reducing clutter deprives these pests of breeding areas. But if you can see bed bugs, black or brown stains that indicate droppings, or if you experience bites, you're likely dealing with an infestation.
