Talking About Pest Control

Hi there, my name is Harvey. Welcome to my site. I am here to talk to you about pest control. There are so many different pests in my area. We have spiders, ants, house centipedes and moths that seem to congregate together at various times of the year. In other parts of the world, there are even more pests waiting to enter the homestead undetected. I would like to share pest control practices everyone can use to keep insects out of their homes. I hope you will visit my site often to learn all you can about pest control. Thanks for visiting.

3 Things You Need Know About Protecting Yourself From Bedbugs

Carlos Douglas

Bedbugs are more common than most would like to admit. They can infest just about anywhere. This is not a problem that only people with poor hygiene deal with, even the cleanest houses and buildings can get bedbugs. This is why it is important that you learn how to recognize bed bugs and know what you can do to get rid of them.

1. Bedbugs Will Bite In A Pattern

In some cases it can be hard to know if you have bed bugs because of heat rashes, other bug bites, and skin irritations. One of the best ways to detect a bedbug bite on your body is to look for a pattern of where the bug could have moved. The bites won't be erratic throughout your body. Instead, you might notice a trail of bites. This is because the bug will take one bite, and then move up a little and do another. If the bite marks are spread throughout the skin, you probably have a different problem.

2. Check For Bedbugs In The Morning

The best time to check for a bedbug problem is in the morning. The bugs are clear when they haven't fed. This means in the evening they will be almost impossible to see. But after they have fed on human blood they will retain the blood in their bodies for a couple hours. This means that the bugs will become a red translucent color. This makes it easier to see them, although it will still be difficult because the bugs are very small. But at least you will notice small black and red specks throughout the mattress and your bedding.

3. Do Not Treat The Problem on Your Own

One of the most frustrating things about bedbugs is that they are so hard to get rid of. They do not always die in water, so washing your sheets and bedding may not do the trick. Instead, they have to be suffocated, in some cases with harsh chemicals. Some people have attempted to treat bedbug on their own and have ruined their furniture, or have even started house fires. This is why it is best to call the exterminator when you notice the problem, and do it quickly. The longer you wait the more the bugs will replicate, making it near impossible to be completely rid of them. The exterminator has the proper chemicals to get rid of the bugs without harming the house or the people in it.

By understanding these things you can protect yourself from bedbugs. To find out more, speak with a business like Rainbow Pest Control.
