How You End Up with an Infestation of Bed Bugs
If you’re currently dealing with a bed bug infestation and looking for bed bug treatments, you’ve come to the right place. You might be wondering how you ended up with bed bugs in your home in the first place. Where did they come from? How did they get to the point of a full infestation? As pros in dealing with bed bugs, Bed Bug Heaters can explain how they managed to get into your home.
Bed Bugs Are Hitchhikers
The biggest problem with this particular pest is the way they tend to spread. They’re hitchhikers. A bed bug can easily hitch a ride on your clothing and belongings, then survive long enough to reach your carpet, bed or furniture. With multiple bugs hiding in clothing or luggage, you can see how easy it might be for an infestation to start.
Staying at Hotels, Motels or Other Houses
Bed bug infestations typically happen after traveling. If you’re staying at a hotel or motel, or even in someone’s house, you may be risking bringing some hidden pests home with you. That’s not to say that any and all lodgings other than yours are infested, but that is a risk of traveling. This is especially true for cheaper hotels or motels that neglect maintenance or proper cleaning.
Old Furniture and Second Hand Stuff
If you’re someone who shops for antiques or likes to check thrift stores for second-hand bargains, you may end up taking home more than you bargained for. Old furniture and old clothes are a risk. It’s very important that you always wash any clothing that you know is second-hand as soon as you get it home. You should also check any old furniture for signs of infestation.
Your House Doesn’t Need to be Dirty to Get Bed Bugs
There are a number of ways you can end up with a bed bug infestation. The problem is, keeping your home clean isn’t going to stop them from settling in. All they need is comfortable material to nest in, and they’ll stick around. Once they are present and are able to feed and reproduce, you’re on your way to a real problem.
