Don’t Let theBed Bugs Bite in Texas
If you've been waking up in the morning covered in what appear to be mosquito or flea bites, then there's a good chance you have some unwelcome guests in your home. These bites could be a sign of an infestation of Bed Bugs, as they prefer feeding during the night while you sleep. Bed Bugs are small wingless insects that look either white, light tan, dark brown, or burnt orange and generally take shelter in dark places.
Due to this inclination for dark places, bed bugs typically prefer to nest where people like to sleep, like beds, bed frames, mattresses, and box springs. Having a cluttered room provides bed bugs with additional hiding places, so keeping areas organized helps prevent an infestation. Additionally, pet owners who have pet bedding in their homes can experience a bed bug problem with their animals. Not only can humans and animals experience red itchy skin and allergic reactions from these insects, bed bugs can also transmit disease.
These unwelcome pests can often infiltrate your home through luggage, furniture, pillows, clothing, boxes, etc. Generally, if you're purchasing used furniture, ensure you inspect it beforehand as there is the possibility of bringing home bed bugs that have already made their nest inside.
