Many people wonder how bed bugs find their way into a home, so in this blog, we are going to discuss the topic a little further.

Before we address the question of how bed bugs end up in a house, it is helpful to know a little more about them, such as what they look like. Bed bugs have flat, oval-shaped bodies that are rust-colored. You will not often see bed bugs as they are extremely small, however, you will likely notice signs that they are present. These signs include small stains on the mattress and bedding resulting from their body parts and fecal matter. As unpleasant as those sound, they may also cause itchy bumps on the skin. The room often has a musty smell also when bed bugs are present. Despite the name, bed bugs are not just found in bedding, you can also find them in clothing, books, picture frames, and soft furnishings.


Now to answer the question of how bed bugs get inside your home. Well, due to their size, they are good at traveling without being seen. For example, if you visit a place, like a hotel, that has a bed bug issue, they can easily get into your luggage or personal items and enter your home that way.


What should you do? If you think you have found evidence of bed bugs in your home, don’t panic, as this may cause you to find an ineffective quick remedy, and you might even make the problem worse. Instead, contact a pest control company that specializes in bed bug removal for advice on the best way to handle the situation.
