Bed Bug Bite Prevention

Bed Bug Bite Prevention: Here at Home Service Pest Control, we understand the frustration and despair that can accompany a bed bug infestation. While the natural response is to panic and start throwing out expensive furniture and clothing, your best course of action is to call in the pros (or read our blog) to help you best deal with your situation. In this article, we will discuss how to prevent bed bug bites. It is extremely necessary that you take measures in order to keep your family from being bitten by these notorious creatures. Did you know that in some areas of the United States, bed bug infestations are actually a serious problem? Bed bugs — sneaky little critters — invade your home and slip into your mattresses, linens, and in between the cracks of your furniture. Bed bugs can survive for over a year without feeding! After they’ve passed their immature stages, they’re basically born with a hunger. They want to feed on humans. This can be rather scary as they are known to bite through clothing (and pesticides) to reach you.

Bed Bug Bite Prevention

Check carefully before you buy used furniture, and avoid second hand stores.

If you’re buying used furniture, check for bed bugs before you buy. Search all the seams and folds of the piece of furniture thoroughly, looking for blood stains and cast skins. Check the mattress and box spring carefully as well.

Avoid second hand stores, thrift stores, garage sales, flea markets and other places where others might have recently sold infested furniture without knowing about it (or without telling). If you do buy something at one of these places make sure to take extra steps to inspect it properly before bringing it into your home.

If you must buy used furniture online or from a local store that doesn’t specialize in bed bug prevention products consider purchasing a bed bug mattress encasement along with any other items that require special treatment such as pillows or blankets etcetera

If you already have a bed bug problem, seek professional help.

If you do have a bed bug problem, be sure to ask for references and make sure the company has been in business for a while. Make sure they can give you an accurate estimate of how long it will take to get rid of your infestation, as well as what they charge per room (a common method is by square footage). Also find out if they are insured and bonded—this means that if anything goes wrong, or if they don’t fulfill their end of the contract, there is some sort of recourse available.

When dealing with this kind of situation, always read over any contracts carefully before signing. In addition to understanding what services are being offered at what price, make sure there aren’t any hidden fees or clauses which could affect your home after treatment has been completed

Vacuuming will help you eliminate bed bugs and their eggs, but it won’t get rid of an infestation on its own.

You should vacuum your bedroom and any other rooms in your home that are affected by bed bugs as soon as you see them. Vacuuming will help you eliminate bed bugs and their eggs, but it won’t get rid of an infestation on its own. Before and after pest control treatment, make sure to vacuum thoroughly with a HEPA-filtered cleaner and check the seal of the bag afterwards to ensure that there are no holes or tears. Dispose of all filled bags immediately to prevent future bed bug activity from occurring inside your vacuum cleaner (this includes under the brush).

Be careful when staying away from home.

People who travel often are more likely to encounter bed bugs. While staying at a hotel, motel, hostel or other type of lodging, be careful about bringing home any unwanted souvenirs. Check the mattresses and furniture before moving your luggage into a room. If you do get bitten, try not to scratch them because it can lead to an infection.

The best way to avoid bed bug bites is by preventing the insects from invading your home in the first place.

The best way to avoid bed bug bites is by preventing the insects from invading your home in the first place. Bed bugs are very good at hiding, so it’s important to inspect regularly for them. This can be done using blacklights and vacuums, both of which help see the tiny insects that would otherwise be difficult to detect. If you’re worried about bed bugs but don’t want to hire an exterminator, there are plenty of do-it-yourself options available.

If you do find yourself with a bed bug infestation on your hands, take steps as soon as possible after discovery; this will prevent further spread of these pests and make it easier for pest control professionals to eradicate them from your property..
