Your family may wake up in the morning with bite marks on their bodies. You may wonder what the cause is since your home is extremely clean, so it can’t be bedbugs can it? The truth is, a house can be immaculate and still fall risk to bed bugs. Bed bugs are one of the most allusive and annoying pests there are. Moreover, the best method of prevention before you call a pest control company is understanding them and their behaviour.

Bed bugs are nocturnal pests and are very hard to find (especially during the early stages of an infestation). They will often be present and hide long before you realise that they are there. They love to live in any gap they kind find, especially near mattresses and headboards. From there, they look for a meal that is usually found in the form of exposed skin. Because of their anatomy, you won’t even notice you have been bitten until you wake up. Unlike other blood feeding pests such as mosquitoes and fleas, both the adult and female bed bugs feed during most of the stages of their life cycle. Once they have eaten, they scurry back to their hiding spot and rest until their next meal. The unfortunate fact is that once they have invaded your bed, multiplication begins. They lay eggs and the problem becomes even worse.
