Bed Bugs: Unwanted Hitchhikers in East Texas Homes

Bed bugs are parasitic insects that feed on the blood of sleeping humans. While they don’t transmit diseases, their bites can be itchy and irritating, disrupting sleep and causing frustration.

Signs of a Bed Bug Infestation

 * Bites: Clusters of small, itchy bites, often in a straight line on exposed skin.

 * Bloodstains:  Rusty or reddish stains on bedding or mattresses from crushed bed bugs.

 * Cast skins:  Shed skins of bed bugs in hiding spots like mattress seams or furniture cracks.

 * Live bed bugs:  Small, reddish-brown insects, visible to the naked eye, often hiding in mattresses, box springs, and furniture cracks.

How Bed Bugs Get Inside

Bed bugs can hitchhike on luggage, clothing, or used furniture. They can also crawl between apartments in multi-unit buildings.

The Dangers of Bed Bugs

While not dangerous in terms of disease transmission, bed bugs can cause significant discomfort and disrupt sleep patterns. Their presence can also cause anxiety and stress.

Preventing Bed Bugs

 * Inspect luggage after travelling, especially when staying in hotels or hostels.

 * Be cautious of used furniture and avoid bringing it into your home without inspecting it thoroughly.

 * Vacuum regularly and pay close attention to seams, edges, and tufts of mattresses and furniture.
