Bed Bugs Love to Stay Where You Rest

Bed Bug Removal Sydney- If you suspect there are bed bugs where you sleep, don’t begin sleeping in another bed or sofa. Do not go to stay with someone else. The bugs may follow you to your guest room or sofa, and then it will be much harder to get rid of them.

They may hitch a ride to your relative’s home, and you can cause them to become infested. Also, staying outside of your home means the bugs may become dormant. We know they may live without feeding for up to 18 months. When you come back, they can begin biting you again. So, the best way to kill bed bugs is by staying in your home during treatment and sleeping in your usual bed.

Once you are being treated, you must remain in bed because you are the bait. You attract bugs to the poison and their deaths. Therefore, staying in your bed will make the treatment perform at its best.

Bed Bug Tips and Information - Bed Bug Removal Sydney

The following are helpful tips and information about bed bugs:

Do save any bed bugs you find

Do not part with these– you may need to show them to landlords, pest control professionals, and so on. In similar manner that entomologists at colleges or science museums in your town may identify these, and a pest control company can too. So, pick it up with clear packing tape, and tape it to an index card. Moreover, don’t assume you’ll see lots of them, some people don’t.

Do rule out other possible conditions, like folliculitis, scabies, and bites from other insects

Suspected bed bug bites sometimes turn out to be one of these other conditions. Doctors cannot diagnose bed bug bites with any certainty. Be warned, though, that doctors may tell many of us that we do not have bed bugs. However, later, we find out they are wrong. Many of them have never seen bed bug bites, or have seen only some patients with them. In fact, bed bug bites can range from large welts to small red bumps, to scabby pimple-type bumps.

Don’t assume you are the only one being bitten

Remember that some people do not react to bed bug bites at all. Bed bug bites are an allergic reaction. However, reactions vary from nothing to serious allergic reactions.

Don’t start throwing your bed and other furniture out

We, bed bug experts, can treat most furniture, including mattresses and sofas. You can ask the pest controller if throwing them out is a good idea. Our experts can help you do it safely to avoid spreading these pests around your home or building. In addition, you need to be careful that others do not pick up infested items.

Don’t start buying a load of chemicals and treating yourself

Bed Bug Removal Sydney - Yes, sometimes doing it your own makes sense, but only if you know what you’re doing. Remember, pesticides have different qualities (repellents, contact killers, residual killers, growth regulators, etc.).

Bed bugs are probably the most complicated pests you’ve ever encounter at home. Oftentimes, if you start spraying pesticides, you may disperse the bugs, and the professionals may have trouble treating them. You may spread them around your home. Hence, get good professional help and follow instructions.

Don't absolutely release a fogger or bug bomb

Do not allow your landlord to do so. Neither a so-called exterminator to do it. Bug bombs/foggers do not work for bed bugs, and in fact, it will just spread them. Your problem will just magnify.

Don’t start bagging everything you own

With the exception of washed and dried clothing, do not seal up everything you own in bags. Some pest controllers will want you to inspect, vacuum, and seal all your possessions in bags. Most won’t. Following their advice is crucial since they know what they’re doing.

If you decide to bag things, you may be sealing away bed bugs. This is only a way of dealing with the problem if you put these items in storage for 18 months, unopened. Instead, most pest controllers will vigorously fight your problem. Eventually, bug experts will make bed bugs attracted out of your possessions and towards poisons which will kill them.

Start dealing with your clothing and linens

Though you should not simply seal your possessions in bags (as above), it is probably a good idea to start with these things. Work on clothing and bedding, since the pest controller is going to tell you to do this, and it takes time. You should take clothing and other items, wash them in a machine on hot, dry them on hot for 1-2 hours. Remember, driers vary as to their strength and how long they take with what size of the load.

My personal method is that items should at least be dried on hot for 20 minutes. That is so until they appear to be fully dry and very hot. If you want to be cautious, go for two hours on hot. Dry cleaning is okay too. Keep in mind that pillows, comforters, down coats, and other thick items may take longer.

Here’s the key: after washing and drying, bag items in sealed, airtight bags, and do not remove them until use.

Don’t assume bed bugs are only in your bed

Bed frames, mattresses, and headboards are not the only most likely location for bed bugs. They can and do often hide out in sofas and other soft furniture. You may also see them in electrical sockets (behind plates), light fixtures, and baseboards.

Bed bugs may also be hiding in floor crevices and other crevices in the bedroom and living room. You can occasionally find bed bugs in kitchens and bathrooms. This should not make you panic. Most cases, especially smaller ones, are quite concentrated, usually 10-20 feet from where people sleep (or where they sit for extended periods).

Don’t believe that bed bugs only bite at night

They prefer a sleeping, stationary host who is fast asleep. But if they’re hungry, they’ll take what they can get. So, they would bite you while you are in a chair, awake.

Don’t assume this will be solved overnight

If the first treatment is done and you still have bed bug bites, this is normal. The bites should decrease and disappear, eventually. If you see bed bugs or are bitten, do have another treatment within 10-14 days of the first.

Insist the pest controller for repeat treatment

Repeat treatment should be every two weeks until you feel no more bites. By this, you will eventually see no live bedbugs or new signs of bed bugs (like bed bug feces stains in the bed). Do not assume you’ve got a bad pest controller because it takes three or four treatments to solve your problem. This, unfortunately, is common, even if you follow all the advice.

Feeding habits

These nocturnal creatures can hide in beds, floors, furniture, wood, and paper trash during the day. We humans usually become their dinner during the night, with peak biting activity just before dawn. They can obtain their meal in as little as three minutes.

Bedbug bites do not usually require treatment. If a secondary infection occurs (usually from scratching), apply a local antiseptic lotion or antibiotic cream or ointment. It may be advised to use creams with corticosteroids and oral antihistamines in the presence of allergic reaction or larger skin reactions. However, in more severe cases, you may need to see your doctor.

Do Bed Bugs Transmit Diseases?

Bed bugs are more of a nuisance than a health hazard. They aren’t known to spread diseases to humans. Although, they may be host to the organisms that cause hepatitis B and Chagas’ disease.

Bed Bug or Imposter?

Don’t assume your bites are from bedbugs. It can be difficult to identify bed bug bits, even for doctors. Rule out mosquitoes, fleas, mites, and biting gnats by conducting a visual inspection. It’s best to collect and identify bedbugs to confirm bites.

Look for the bugs themselves or their bloodstains, especially along the seams of mattresses. Furthermore, look for dark spots of insect waste where bedbugs might crawl into hiding places on furniture, walls, and floors.
