Conduct regular inspections.

This is where many people drop the
ball when it comes to bed bug remedies.

If you get to the point where you can see multiple bed bugs crawling under your mattress at night, you've already waited too long.

The point here is to be proactive by inspecting your home on a regular basis.

Bed bugs are small, but they can be seen by the human eye, so visually inspect your furniture and walls.

Another great way to check for bed bugs is by picking up latex gloves and sliding a hand inside the folds of your furniture like your couch and bed.

If your glove gets black spots, that indicates bed bug feces.

 

You might believe that you know everything there is to know about bed bugs, but we'd bet that isn't true. To prove this point, here are five unusual and interesting bed bug facts:

Bed Bug Facts #1: They can live up to a year without feeding.

While this fact has been covered before, it's so fascinating that it deserves to be on this list. Human beings have a hard time going half a day without a hearty meal. But not bed bugs. These little creatures must feed in order to grow into each life cycle, but they can hold out for up to a year, in many cases. Where do they hide during this time? In your walls ... under your floor boards ... anywhere they can find refuge for an extended period of time.

Bed Bug Facts #2: They have a distinctive smell.

If you have a bad bed bug infestation, a professional will often be able to tell by the musky scent in a particular room. If the scent isn't strong enough for humans to perceive them, bed bug dogs can be used to find their hiding spots. Where does the smell come from? Very simple: their feces.

Bed Bug Facts #3: Their bites are nearly painless.

Have you ever woken up in the morning with bed bug bites and wondered why you didn't wake up while the insect was sucking your blood in the middle of the night? This is because the saliva of a bed bug acts as an anaesthetic and increases blood flow. So even though your blood is being harvested, you'll keep right on sleeping without knowing it.

Bed Bug Facts #4: They don't live where you might think.

Many people are still under the impression that bed bugs are limited to dirty homes or those in rural areas where insects breed. This couldn't be further from the truth. Bed bugs, sadly, are everywhere. In fact, they are more prevalent in urban areas due to increased travel, apartment living, and other factors.

Bed Bug Facts #5: Professional removal is usually best.

Due to their ability to hide in small spaces, bed bugs are notoriously difficult to find and eliminate. Even professionals can sometimes have a tough time, because removal is extremely time-consuming. Many of them employ bed bug dogs to help locate the parasites, and then a methodical plan to get rid of them is undertaken.
