If you think you have a bed bug problem, you should immediately seek professional help to get rid of these creatures. These creatures are small and hard to spot. They like to hide under the mattress and box spring. To see if your bed is infested, you should check the mattress’ edges and under the mattress.
Bed bugs may have evolved from bat bugs that fed on humans. The ancient Greeks and Romans even wrote about bedbugs. They were a common feature of many people’s lives until World War II. The best way to control them is to get rid of the habitat where the bugs live.
One of the most important ways to detect a bed bug infestation is to search for specks of blood on the surface of the bed or furniture. These specks of blood can appear near the seams of upholstered furniture. Additionally, bed bugs can leave shell-like remains on the surface of the bed or bedding.
Visual inspections can also miss these pests. However, an infestation along the baseboard or near an outlet can be more visible. In addition to visual examination, you can also use a bed bug interception device. These devices trap bed bugs and other bugs. This allows you to pinpoint the source of the infestation.
