Bed bug treatment is absolutely essential for keeping your home a happy and healthy place to be, and here’s why. 

We all know about bed bugs, but until you’ve experienced a bed bug issue, it’s difficult to imagine how frustrating these exceptionally pesky pests can be. Bed bugs can disrupt your sleep every night if they feel like it, and because they’re so good at surviving in various environments for extended periods of time, a bed bug problem isn’t just going to go away. 

But all is not lost– far from it. You can do a lot to prevent future bed bug issues in your home, and if you currently have a bed bug problem, help is just a phone call away - Combat Pest Control. So, let’s get into the details of definitive bed bug control for your home.  

Identifying Bed Bugs: Signs And Symptoms Of An Infestation

Bed bug signs are fairly apparent when you know what to look for; looking for those key signs of bed bugs is an important part of assessing the situation and deciding on the next steps. 

For one, bed bug bites are a clear sign of an infestation, for obvious reasons, but how can you tell bed bug bites apart from other types of insect bites? Bed bug bites typically appear in close groupings or even a zigzag pattern. 

Other signs of a bed bug presence include eggs, skins, droppings, and dark brown stains. You will typically find these near a bed or another textile surface. The seams of mattresses and furniture are common hiding places for bed bugs, and even when the bugs relocate, they will leave signs of their presence. 

Will Bed Bugs Just Go Away?

When faced with a bed bug infestation, it’s natural to wonder when it will end. You may be asking yourself, will bed bugs just go away? Will they just drink their fill and move on to the next location? 

Unfortunately, the answer is no. Bed bugs like to dig into their environments, especially if that environment provides them with a consistent food source, i.e., blood or the nutrients found in blood. 

Further, bed bugs need humans to move around the world. Bed bugs get into our home with our help or the help of someone who has entered the home. Bed bugs are hitchhikers, and unless they need a new place to stay, they won’t try to hitch a ride out of your house. 

Bed bug control is your best bet for resolving an infestation, and it’s also the fastest option.
