Got Bed Bugs? You Need a Proven Bed Bug Exterminator: Leo's
How Do I Know if I Have Bed Bugs?
Bed bugs are good at hiding and typically only come out at night while you are sleeping. They prefer areas like bedrooms, often hiding in seams of mattresses and box springs because that's where they find their food source, you! Bed bugs feed on blood and will keep out of sight not only in bedding but cracks and crevices, in furniture and anywhere else they can stay undetected. Once the lights go out, they come out of hiding and begin feeding.
You'll notice small, itchy sores where you have been bitten and you may even see little bug skeletons from the bed bugs molting from one stage to another. Black spots and red stains on bedding and clothing is another red flag and may mean you have an infestation. If you see any of these signs, it may be time to call a professional like Leo's Pest Control.
How Did I Get Bed Bugs?
These pests are not the result of unsanitary living conditions as many people think, they are just good at hitching rides from one food source to the next. You could have gotten bed bugs from that hotel you stayed in, from the clothes you bought at the thrift store or even from a friend or neighbor's home. Bed bugs just love to travel, and they could have hitched a ride in your purse, luggage or even in the clothes you were wearing. Once they get to your home, bed bugs set up shop and begin feeding and breeding and can be hard to get rid of without a professional pest control company.
