Americans love to travel. Whether it’s for work or for pleasure, going from place to place has never been easier, with uber and airbnb’s to complete the trip. An unfortunate side effect of all this travel is the spread of bed bugs, our least favorite hitchhikers. They slide into clothes and luggage, travelling along with you to your destination or jumping ship along the way. For this reason hotels now have to be rigorously cleaned and inspected for bed bugs. Even residential areas have been hit hard, with people waking up every day with itchy bed bug bites on their skin.
Bed bugs are oval in shape, insects that feed on human blood. They are most active at night while we are sleeping. This makes it difficult to detect them. Another reason they often go undetected is their ability to feed only when they absolutely need to. In fact, bed bugs can go up to a year without feeding! So just because the bites went away for a few days or weeks doesn’t mean the bed bugs left. It’s best to call a bed bug professional to come treat your bedroom and home with products and heat treatments if needed. That way you don’t have to do it on your own and can focus on what is important to you.
