Most people know that bed bugs are problematic. They seem to arrive out of nowhere, and in large droves. You’ll lose your sleeping space as they take over mattresses and bedding. When you least suspect it, they’ll latch onto your skin and suck your blood. The end result is a lot of seriously itchy red bumps. Moreover, many homeowners in Fort Meyers are at a loss about how to prevent or get rid of bed bugs.

Furthermore, bed bugs can create additional crises. By learning more about these and how these critters come about in the first place, you’ll be in a better position to stop them with assistance from Biotherm Green Solutions.

How Do Bed Bugs Enter The Home?

Bed bugs can be in many public places because they’ll be provided with abundant access to blood. This fluid is the only thing that gives them sustenance. Schools, offices, bus stations, and hotels are examples of the kinds of locations they infiltrate. They crawl into purses, briefcases, luggage, clothes, and other personal items. This is how people unknowingly bring them home. Once inside your residence, bed bugs can spread to:

  • Couches
  • Upholstery
  • Electronics
  • Appliances 
  • Fabrics
  • Wallpaper
  • Flooring
  • Wood Trim
  • And more

If you begin to find patchy, rash-like bites on your body, you may have a bed bug infestation. Other major signs are odors and blemishes. You’re liable to notice a mustiness in the air. On fabrics and surfaces, you’ll probably find blood drops and reddish-brown stains and brown or black fecal powder.

The common household bed bug is ¼ of an inch long and has two antennas and six legs. Their round heads and tails are connected by an abnormally shaped midsection. The top half of their bodies are larger than their lower portions. Be on the lookout for pearly white eggs and translucent young.

What Are The Dangers Of Bed Bugs?

Fortunately, bed bugs haven’t been classified as insects that transmit disease. But homeowners should still be on alert. There are several conditions that these troublesome pests can cause or trigger:

  • Mental health effects: It makes sense that the presence of bed bugs can arouse great stress that may lead to high anxiety or insomnia. 
  • Allergic responses: Breathing complications, nausea, and inflammation of the skin can happen for residents who have allergies to bed bug bites.
  • Secondary infections: Scratching bites can result in open cuts and subsequent exposure to germs. Infections like ecthyma, impetigo, and lymphangitis could develop.
  • Anemia: When the blood is depleted, as in severe bed bug infestation cases, anemia can arise. Some key symptoms are paleness of the skin, lightheadedness or headache, weakness, and extreme fatigue.
