It is not typical for people to be extremely knowledgeable about bed bugs. This lack of expertise could come back to bite you in the event of a bed bug infestation. Below are some things everyone should know about bed bugs.
Bed Bugs Feed At Night
There is a reason why people say “don’t let the bed bugs bite” before going to sleep. The probability of getting bitten by a bed bug increases at night because that is when they come out to feed. Since the bite itself is painless, it is very easy for people to sleep through this.
Bed Bugs Do Not Transfer Diseases To Humans
Fortunately, bed bugs do not transfer diseases to humans in the way that mosquitoes and ticks do. That is not to say that bed bug bites do not cause any discomfort. Bites from a bed bug can make a person itchy and there are instances where the itchiness is severe.
Bed Bugs Are Great At Hiding
You may have bed bugs in your home without ever having seen one. This is due to the fact that bed bugs are very small and they are also great at hiding. In fact, you may come across small amounts of blood or droppings before you see a bed bug.
