Where Do Bed Bugs Come From?

Bed bugs have one objective and that’s to find blood they can absorb. The fluid is what keeps them alive. Many people believe that dirt is of matter to them, but it’s not. Seeking hosts to withdraw blood from, these insects will parade around animal terrains and public places. For instance, farms, airports, train stations, hotels, schools, and offices. It’s simple for them to get inside homes because they’ll creep into the clothes and personal effects of patrons who are out and about. Once they’ve made it to a dwelling, they’ll crawl off into your:

  • Mattresses
  • Couches 
  • Upholstery
  • Fabrics
  • Appliances
  • Electronics
  • Flooring
  • Wallpaper
  • Wood Trim

Bites, stains, and odors are the three key signs of infestation. You’ll find clumped together welts all over your body, but mainly on your face, neck, arms, and legs. It will appear patchy and like a rash. Expect to see reddish-brown marks and blood drops on surfaces and fabrics. Additionally, there will be brown and black fecal specks with a powdery consistency. Musty scents will overwhelm spaces when bed bug populations are growing in your residence. 
 
The bed bugs that commonly invade households are 0.25 of an inch long. Their reddish-brown bodies have six legs and two antennas. They have a small upper half and a large lower half, with circular parts. Excluded from this is their midsection, which has an abnormal form. Bed bugs create translucent young, which come from eggs that are pearly white.

How Can Bed Bugs Be Prevented?

When you leave the house:

  • Avoid letting your personal effects touch the ground or floor. 
  • Notify hotel maintenance immediately if you’re in a unit with bed bugs. Ask to be relocated to another room far away. 
  • Always put your luggage in a protective cover or plastic bag.
  • Your travel clothes should be washed in hot water, and dried with high heat for a minimum of 20 minutes. 

When you’re at home:

  • Use a flashlight to inspect box springs, head and footboards, and mattress seams. Also, look beneath beds. 
  • Thoroughly examine bags and purses, clothing piles, drawers, and furniture. 
  • Look for infestation signs on second-hand items, like electronics, appliances, and furniture. Do not buy or use the objects if you see evidence of bed bugs.
