Bedbugs are wingless nocturnal parasitic insects that typically reside in bedrooms, leaving their homes in bedding, furniture or cracks in the floor to feed on human blood. They should not be confused with bed lice, which are not generally visible to the naked eye. If you wake up with irritated bites or welts, your home may be infected by bedbugs. Some people may suffer an allergic reaction to the bites which may require treatment, though application of a topical cream is usually sufficient to relieve itching. Bedbugs are often brought into the home unawares, often on clothing or luggage used while travelling. Pets can also unwittingly bring bedbugs into the home.
It is advisable to consult pest control technicians if your home is infested by bedbugs. They will use a combination of techniques to ensure eradication, including chemical and steam treatments.
Follow these simple steps to reduce the risk of bedbugs invading your home:
Ensure that your family and pets are not exposed to any chemical pesticides that may be used in a home treatment.
