A common saying between parents and their children…but a not so funny situation if you have them.
Bedbugs are tiny little bugs with no wings that feed on the blood of humans and their pets at night. These mini vampires can live as long as a year and half without feeding and are very difficult to get rid of because of this. In addition their size and flat shape allow them to hide behind wallpaper and in tiny little places that are hard to reach.
Bedbug bites may take up to 14 days to appear and are normally found around the face,chest arms and legs – but can appear anywhere on the body. Most people do not have severe reactions and an antihistamine and/or antibiotic creams usually do the job. Should you have more than an itchy bite – please seek medical care.
If your are a DIY kind of person…because we always try to provide a DIY option – trying to get rid of these little bloodsuckers is a nightmare akin to cockroach control and after looking at the suggested process – you won’t be saving any money and the rate of failure is high.
