Bugs are pests! There is no doubt that if you have bugs in your Brooklyn home or apartment that they can be more than just a nuisance – they can spread disease, transmit bacteria, worsen allergies and destroy your home. And if you have a bed bug problem, you need a professional bed bug exterminator to get rid of these pests once and for all.
In recent years, bed bugs have become a common problem. Although they were often previously associated with overcrowding and dirty and unclean housing environments, this is no longer the case. Bed bugs have been found today in many homes and spaces and are often found in the cleanest living accommodations including fine hotels and large apartment buildings in Brooklyn and New York City.
Contrary to popular belief, bed bugs are not attracted to dirt and grime; unlike cockroaches, bed bugs are not filth bugs. Instead, they are attracted to warmth, blood, and carbon dioxide. Vigorously cleaning your living areas might rid you of bed bugs you can see – but the hidden ones that are harder to find pose the greater problem. If you have bed bugs, you need to hire a professional bed bug exterminator to detect and get rid of these sneaky pests.
What are Bed Bugs?
According to New York Department of Health, “Bed bugs are small insects that are usually active at night when people are sleeping. Adult bed bugs have flat rusty-red-colored oval bodies. Adult bed bugs are about one quarter of an inch long (about the size of an apple seed). They are big enough to be easily seen, but often hide in cracks in furniture, floors, or walls. Bed bugs feed on human blood and thy can live for over a year without feeding on a host. Bed bugs must feed on blood in order to grow and reproduce and females lay eggs which hatch and go through five growth stages before becoming adults. While bed bugs have not been shown to cause or spread diseases. – some people will react to bed bugs bites and excessive scratching can lead to secondary infections.”
How to Detect Bed Bugs
If you suspect that you have a bed bug problem you should call a bed bug exterminator immediately. If you are not sure whether you have bed bugs in your Brooklyn home, there are several signs that you can look for that may be an indicator of a bed bug invasion.
If you wake up in the morning with small bite marks on your arms, back and legs – they may be a result of bed bug bites. Areas that are in contact with the mattress are the most common areas of the skin that are bitten. Bite marks may look like small welts that are grouped together. They can look red and are very itchy.
Blood Stains on Bedding
If there are small blood stains on your pillow cases or mattress covers – it can be from bed bug bites. Since bed bugs thrive on blood it is likely that you bleed when they bite. You can often find blood stains in places where you have slept.
