Pets and Bed Bugs
If you have pets, you probably try to do everything to keep them healthy and happy. When bed bugs come into the picture, it isn’t just you that they are feeding on, but your pets as well. Protecting yourself and your family might be your utmost concern, but how do bed bugs affect your pets? Bed bugs can affect your pets in the same way they affect you. If you are experiencing itchy skin and welts, then your pet may be as well. In this blog, Bed Bug Heaters explains how bed bugs affect your pets, and details why professional assistance is necessary to thoroughly eradicate bed bugs from your home.
My Pet And I Have Bed Bugs, Now What?
If you you are suffering from a bed bug infestation, follow these steps to reduce the issue. First, begin purging your belongings of bed bugs. If possible, have someone work with you by cleaning your pet’s toys, bed, and kennel. Remember, bed bugs are not like fleas or ticks. They rarely stay on the skin for long periods of time. They feed at night and hide during the day. Start by cleaning your pet’s carrier thoroughly. Then clean all their toys and belongings. This task may seem tedious, but it will provide your pet with some relief until you can contact the experts at Bed Bug Heaters to help you successfully eradicate bed bugs from your home.
Why Is Professional Assistance Necessary?
Bed bugs can be very difficult pests to get rid of. Bug Bombs from the store and anti-flea or anti-tick products cannot successfully keep bed bugs at bay. Thermal treatments are effective in eradicating bed bug infestations. It is better to be proactive than wait until the infestation gets out of control.

Preventing Bed Bugs While Traveling
Anyone who travels knows that it is fun to take home souvenirs, but not if they come in the form of bed bugs. In this blog, the team from Bed Bug Heaters presents a few tips to help you prevent the transportation of bed bugs from your vacation destination back to your home.
What Can I Do Before I Travel?
While selecting where you will be staying for the duration of your vacation, keep an eye on the reviews. Do you see multiple posts relating to bed bugs? If so, it might be a good idea to look for another place to stay. If you have your heart set on a particular hotel, motel, or rental property and you see that they have a few older reviews that mention bed bugs, feel free to contact them and ask if they still have any bed bug issues. Bed bugs are serious pests, and it is well within your rights to ask about information regarding a prior infestation. If they avoid your question or provide you with unclear information, it is a good idea to look into other options.
How Can You Prevent Taking Bed Bugs Home?
The first thing that you can do is inspect your hotel room thoroughly and make sure that there are no bed bugs in obvious spots. The first places that you should check are the bed linens and the underside of the mattress. Pay close attention to the seams and to any patterns stitched into the mattress. Bed Bugs are attracted to cracks and crevices. If you notice anything that seems out of the ordinary, you should contact management immediately.
Before you unpack, make sure that your hotel room is clear of bed bugs. Check upholstered items next, then check the headboard and the floor under the bed. When you get home, make sure that you thoroughly check your luggage and wash your clothing.

Ideal Environments For Bed Bugs
Due to their small size, bed bugs are masters of finding unexpected places to hide in.

In this blog, Bed Bug Heaters provides an overview of common hiding spots perfect for these pests.
Where Bed Bugs Hide
Bed bugs do not limit themselves to hiding only in your sheets and under your mattress. They seek environments that are hidden but that are also close to humans. They may conceal themselves in upholstery, behind electrical switch plates, deep in the seats of public transportation, and in a multitude of other dark areas that are close to food sources.
Bed Bugs Can Be Found In Surprising Places
While it might seem pretty obvious that bed bugs might be found in hotels or motels, they are also found in schools, daycares, nursing homes, hospitals and college dorms. It is even possible to find bed bugs in clothing stores. It is important to remain diligent and keep on the lookout for bed bugs.

Finding The Right Affordable Bed Bug Treatment
If your home has been subject to a bed bug infestation, cleaning the house of pests is a top priority. However, if you are on a tight budget, that can be a little bit tougher. Finding an affordable bed bug treatment for your home will require some effort and legwork on your part. Proper research can save you a lot of money, so you can find an affordable bed bug treatment that is also effective. In today’s blog post, Bed Bug Heaters will give you some tips for finding the right affordable bed bug treatment.
Try Do-It-Yourself Remedies
If you are a budget and cannot or would rather not go with professional pest control for your bed bug problem, you can start with do-it-yourself remedies. These are very cheap and, in some cases, free. You can start by washing and drying all of your sheets, pillowcases, and bedding from every bedroom in the home. Tidy and vacuum all affected areas. You can also begin inspecting your home yourself, looking for dead bed bugs in hard-to-reach areas and in the woodwork.
Another option is to go with a chemical solution, but you need to make sure that it is both safe and effective for your home.
Weigh Your Professional Options
If DIY solutions aren’t an option, you can then begin to weigh your professional choices. While they won’t be as cheap, you can still find an affordable bed bug treatment from an exterminator or heater rental service. With an exterminator, you’ll have to do the right research and get multiple quotes to see which services you can afford. A bed bug heater is a great and affordable bed bug treatment because it will likely be cheaper and more convenient than an exterminator, without exposing your home to chemicals.
Go With A Heat Treatment
At the end of the day, there are many affordable bed bug treatments, but not all of them are effective. A heat treatment is the easiest, safest, and often the most affordable bed bug treatment. At Bed Bug Heaters, you can select from a wide variety of units that will get rid of your bed bug problem in no time.
