Sharing your most intimate of spaces with something that you didn’t invite in is a terrifying prospect for any human. Many homeowners find themselves mortified when they realize they’ve been sleeping with the enemy: bedbugs. However if you do see tiny little bite marks on a member of your family, it’s time to call in the cavalry to get all the unwanted guests out of your home! Find out how you can prevent bed bugs from getting into your home, especially by preventing them when you’re traveling.
Many people think that only dirty people have bed bugs. However, bed bugs are found just as often in immaculately clean and organized homes as they are in dodgy hotel rooms. Many times these tiny insects can infest your homes simply because they traveled to your home after infesting your neighbor’s luggage during their flight to Missouri last month.
Bed bugs are tiny, lay eggs that are as small as a speck of dust, and scatter in small groups quickly throughout living spaces. However, this does not mean that bed bugs are impossible to see. Check mattress seams, wallpaper seams, or along the walls for traces of bed bugs.
What should you do if you have bed bugs?
Clean your home, yes.
Get new sheets, yes.
Get a new mattress, yes.
Try to spray or sanitize the bed bugs away, no.
