BED BUGS

QUICK FACTS ON BED BUGS

Bed bugs like to travel and are good hitchhikers. They will hide in suitcases, boxes and shoes to be near a food supply. They are elusive, nocturnal creatures. They can hide behind baseboards and in cracks, crevices, and folded areas of beds, bedding and adjacent furniture, especially mattresses and box springs. Bed bugs usually come out at night for a blood meal. After feeding, they move to secluded places and hide for 5-10 days. Although bed bugs can dine on any warm-blooded animal, they primarily dine on humans. Bed bugs do not transmit diseases, but their bites can become red, itchy welts.

BED BUG PREVENTION TIPS

  • Vacuum and inspect suitcases after returning from a vacation.

  • Know the signs of bed bugs, stay on the lookout for evidence, and change your bed linens often.

  • Consider bringing a large plastic trash bag to keep your bags in during hotel stays, or at least keep them off carpet, beds and furniture whenever you can.

  • Carry a small flashlight to assist you with quick visual inspections.

  • Never bring second-hand furniture, especially mattresses and box springs, into a home without thoroughly examining for signs of a bed bug infestation.

  • Wash new clothes before putting them away.

  • Regularly inspect areas where pets sleep for signs of bed bugs.

Bed Bugs are NOT a Do-It-Yourself project. Attempting to treat bed bugs yourself can have disastrous consequences, like having to throw away your furniture, carpets and beds. Many people don't know they have bed bugs until it's a full-fledged infestation. If you suspect you have bed bugs, call SonEquity immediately.
