Finding out you have a bed bug infestation is bad news for everyone. Maintaining the comfort and security of home takes precedence over many other things in life, and coming across a bed bug infestation is pretty depressing, and can leave you with a lot of questions, like where they came from. The problem with bed bugs is that they could have come from just about anywhere, and preventing the problem can be pretty tough.
Bed bugs find their way into your home in a variety of ways, although you will usually provide, unknowingly, a helping hand. Bed bugs are often found in public places, including public transit. They are also known to frequent places like high traffic beds that are found in places like hotels, motels, and guest lodgings. You could have picked up bed bugs almost anywhere you set down a bag or stayed at for any amount of time. When you enter a bed bug infested area without knowing, bed bugs will eagerly seize the opportunity by crawling into clothes and luggage, waiting patiently for a ride home, where they will then nest and infest places generally close to a feeding source, which is generally humans, though they have been known to feed on pets as well. Bed bugs will hide in the smallest of creases, folds and even stitching of upholstery, making them extremely hard to find.
With a quick scan of the internet, you can find a plethora of DIY bed bug treatments. Keep scanning and you will find that most of them are quite ineffective. But why? The problem starts with a bed bug’s size or lack thereof. Bed bugs are very small, which means they can hide in places you simply don’t see and can't reach. In walls, cracks, under clutter, and even inside of upholstered furniture are only a handful of the places a bed bug is happy to call home. Many DIY treatments only go as far as the eye can see, and if you don’t get all of them at once, chances are they will just continue to breed. You will ultimately only slow the infestation but never completely get rid of it. Calling a professional if you have a bed bug problem is without question the most effective way of reassuring a bed bug eradication.
