What Consumers Should Know About Bedbugs
Bedbugs are also known as Cimex Lectularius. They’re ectoparasites that enjoy consuming human and animal blood. They try to consumer human blood when possible, but they’ll accept animal blood too. Bedbugs have received their name because they often hide in beds across your city. They prefer hiding in mattresses because this allows them to stay as close as possible to their favorite food source. Bedbugs are very small with most reaching 3/16 of an inch when they reach adulthood.
Why Are Bedbugs In My House?
What causes bedbugs to sneak into homes in your city? Does it have something to do with consumers failing to properly clean their homes? The answer is no. Bedbugs are not attracted to human food crumbs. Instead, they want to consume your blood and they can find numerous ways to sneak into your home. If you like purchasing used items, there is a greater risk that you’re going to experience a bedbug infestation soon. Bedbugs tend to hide in items, including furniture and clothes. You need to be careful when buying used items to make sure that they’re free of bugs.
Traveling abroad is rewarding, but it could lead to issues. If you choose the wrong motel room, you may take unwanted guests home with you. Finally, your neighbors might have a bedbug infestation. If this is the case, the bedbugs are going to travel from your neighbor’s house or apartment to yours. They usually don’t travel far, but it happens.
