Stop Putting The Welcome Mat Out For Bed Bugs
September 30, 2010
Even though you keep a neat and tidy home, bed bugs are pretty sneaky creatures and just love to hitch a ride inside your residence to set up housekeeping. Many homeowners in Phoenix and surrounding areas don’t realize that certain things they do simply put out the welcome mat for a bed bug infestation.
Luggage and clothing you bring inside your home after a trip may contain bed bugs from your vacation destination. Your child’s backpack and clothing are other ways that these small and flat pests can gain entry into your home since schools are a perfect breeding ground for bed bug infestation. Used furniture and clothing you buy at a flea market or rummage sale can allow bed bugs easy entry into your house. Even used books or any item that has crevices or hidden corners make convenient places for these very small and flat pests, the size of an apple seed, to hitch a ride into your house.
Once safely inside, did you know that the female bed bug can lay up to 5 eggs per day, quickly leading to an unsanitary infestation? Tell-tale signs that you have a bed bug infestation include red stains on the mattress or bedding, a black trail of tiny feces on your bedding or the seams and crevices of your mattress, the sweet aroma similar to rotting raspberries, or bites on your limbs that resemble mosquito or flea bites.
