Bed bugs: one of your worst nightmares
Even if bed bugs have not been shown to transmit any disease, getting bites and knowing that your home is infested is very distressing and frustrating. As for the bites, each person’s body reacts differently and in some cases they can become sore and itchy and lead to a painful skin rash. It is important to note that bed bugs don’t make any difference between clean and dirty homes; the only thing they look for is a food source, people’s blood. This is the reason why they are found where people tend to rest and sleep, hence the name bed bug.
To get a bed bug infestation, you will need to have come into direct contact with them as a result of staying in infested accommodation. They are usually brought into a home carried on clothing, or in luggage or furniture. There has been a recent resurgence of bed bugs in homes and it is widely thought that this is related to a global increase in international travel (bed bugs are known to travel in luggage or clothing).
We understand that if you have bed bugs in your house, the only thing on your mind will be getting rid of them as quickly as possible.
