No one wants to be stuck with the dreaded bed bugs! They are pest that is no fun to find out you have and even less fun to try and get rid of. Some of the reasons is that they are sneaky and can hide really well. They are very small in size and can look like a small speck on your mattress or sheets. They tend to hide in cracks and crevices of furniture or mattresses during the day time. When the night falls and someone lays in the bed to sleep, the bed bugs show up. They come out of hiding to feed on the blood of the host that is sleeping in the bed or on the couch. The biggest problem is that they are hard to see and usually the only way that you realize you have them is by the bites they leave behind. That means that when you wake up you might notice a line of small red bites. That is a huge sign that bed bugs could be present. The best thing you can do if you suspect bed bugs is to call a professional that offers inspections and treatment to kill off bed bugs in your home. A Five Star Termite & Pest Control lists ways to help protect yourself from bed bugs.
