How Bed Bugs Get Inside Homes
Many people believe that bed bug infestations are the result of poor household hygiene, but even the cleanest homes are at risk. Adult bed bugs are only about the size of an apple seed, and they can easily hide between cracks around door frames and windowsills. Bed bugs are also notorious for their tendency to hitchhike. If infested clothing, suitcases, grocery bags, or used furniture are brought into a home, the infestation will spread throughout the area. Once inside, even a small population of bed bugs can easily grow into a serious problem. Female bed bugs lay between one and 12 eggs each day, and they breed all year long.
Problems Caused by Bed Bug Infestations
Unlike other parasites such as ticks and fleas, bed bugs are not known to spread any diseases with their bites. On the other hand, many people are allergic to their saliva and will develop rashes and bumps on the skin after being bitten. Scratching these rashes can damage the skin and leave it prone to bacterial infections.
Bed bugs are becoming increasingly resistant to pesticides, and professional help is typically the only way to put an end to an infestation. If you want to get rid of bed bugs on your property, call Florida Pest Control Center for a free quote.
