You might not know what a bed bug is but we are here to tell you that they are not something that you would want in your home. The problem with bed bugs is that they spread and before long, you’ll have a big problem on your hands.
How to Know and Avoid Bed Bugs
At Rest Easy Pest Control in New York City, we suggest that in order to avoid a problem with bed bugs, you have routine maintenance performed. These pesky insects could be in your home right now and you don’t even know it. They don’t just live in beds, they can be found around your home in carpeting, drapes, picture frames, fans and other places.
They spread quickly because they often go undetected by most people. This isn’t hard to do considering they are so difficult to spot. Even when bitten by bed bugs, people often associated it with something else. They might think they are having an allergic reaction to something and that is why they have a rash on their skin.
The reality is that it could be a bed bug problem. If you travel often or if you have recently traveled, the possibility of your having a bed bug infestation is even greater.
How You are Affected
If you are being bitten by bed bugs, you could have a simple rash or your problem could be worse if you are allergic to the saliva of the bed bug. We suggest that you visit your physician who can prescribe antihistamine or corticosteroids to rid you of the rash. When you are noticing yourself scratching more than usual, stop! When you have been bitten by bed bugs, scratching will only make the problem worse than it is and cause it to spread.
You might think that all of the itching is due to an allergic reaction to something else but in reality is because of a bed bug problem. If you suspect that you may have a problem with bed bugs, do yourself a favor by getting the help of qualified New York exterminators, like Rest Easy Pest Control.
