Overview of Bed Bugs

Bed bugs were mostly eliminated in the U.S. for much of the 20th century, but infestations became increasingly common in the early '90s. Today, bed bugs are extremely difficult to get rid of due to their resistance to pesticides. They typically get inside homes by hitching a ride on items such as clothing, luggage, and used furniture. Adults have flat bodies and grow to be about a quarter of an inch in length. They are typically a dark brown color, and they become more reddish after feeding on blood.

Health Problems Caused by Bed Bugs

Bed bugs may not be able to spread diseases with their bites, but they can cause the skin of humans and their pets to break out in painful red bumps. Scratching the irritated skin leaves it prone to dangerous bacterial infections. In addition to skin damage and irritation, bed bug infestations typically have some serious psychological effects. Trying to sleep in an infested bed can certainly be a nerve-wracking experience, and sleep deprivation is a common result. The inhabitants of infested homes often suffer from high anxiety, especially when the infestation lasts for a long period of time.

The best way to avoid the psychological and physical damage caused by bed bugs is to have them professionally exterminated right away. If you notice signs of a bed bug infestation in your home, contact The Florida Pest Control Center for a free quote.
