When Bedbugs Bite We’ll Help You Bite Back

Secured Environments - Bedbugs

Bedbugs are mainly considered nocturnal as they are more active at night. They prefer to feed on a blood meal while you are sleeping. They will pierce the skin and draw out blood using their beak. Bed bugs feed from 3 to 10 minutes to become swollen and then, they creep away unseen.

At first, you won’t feel pain right after they bite you. However, it will later become itchy and turn into welts. Bedbugs don’t merely target a specific site, they bite on any exposed skin. Sometimes people mistakenly identify a bedbug bite and attribute the itching and welts to other causes like Mosquitoes. But if you think you have a bedbug infestation at your home, you might as well hire a pest control team to verify and safely treat your home.

The following are signs of a bedbug infestation:

  • Blood stains or bed linens
  • Dark spots on bed sheets and mattresses
  • Egg shells, decal spots and skin sheds in areas where bed bugs are hidden
  • Foul, musty odor

If you notice the above-mentioned signs, contact Secured Environments.
