A bedbug can bite any part of the human body. However, they are most likely to bite exposed skin when you sleep. This includes your face, hands, arms, and neck. The bites can be so large that they cause swelling and infection. The best way to prevent these bites is to keep your skin clean and dry.
You can remove bedbugs by vacuuming them up. Be sure to use a plastic bag before throwing away the vacuum bags. To be on the safe side, it’s best to dispose of the bag outdoors. If the problem persists, you may need to hire a professional pest control company to get rid of the problem for good.
Adult bed bugs are oval-shaped and about 5 millimeters long. They have flat bodies with well-developed antennae and small, compound eyes. In addition, they have many small hairs on the pronotum (the area behind the head). The immature version of these insects is a light yellow-white color with two segments.
It is not recommended to treat your bed with chemical products. Although these treatments can be effective at getting rid of bedbugs, they can be harmful to your health and your home. The most effective and safest way to remove bedbugs is to hire a professional pest control service.
