Pest Management Services Lists Interesting Facts About Bed Bugs

Bed Bugs are Hard to See with the Human Eye: This is a myth that some people think. Bed bugs are thought to be small enough that when you go look at them you are not able to see them. The thing is that bed bugs are not small enough to be hidden completely. The reason that they are quite hard to locate is the fact that they are good at hiding. They are not active in the day time and they tend to hide in the mattress including around the edges of the seams. If you look around the edges of the bed behind the sheets you may see signs that they are there including the pests themselves. Other signs of bed bugs are small blood spots that they often leave behind after they have had a blood meal. If you suspect you have bed bugs, the best option is to have a professional come and do a thorough inspection.

The problem is that studies have been done and the fact is that bed bugs are happy to live in clean and organized spaces just as much as a cluttered mess as long as their is a convenient blood meal nearby! That means that just about any home could be infested with bed bugs. If you travel or are near someone that has bed bugs it only takes one to get on you or your belongings to come home with you.

Can a Vacuum Cleaner Remove Bed Bugs?: There are some DIY bed bug projects that say you can simply use a vacuum to remove the bed bugs.
