Causes Of A Bed Bug Infestation

It’s easy to think that bed bugs only enter dirty properties, but that’s just not true. Bed bugs can invade even the cleanest homes. You might introduce bedbugs via your luggage, which has been in a bedbug-infested hotel. Or bedbugs might come back to your property from an infested car, taxi or bus. You might have bought a used mattress or another piece of upholstered furniture that comes infested with bedbugs.

Some people may pick up a starter infestation of bedbugs as part of their job. For example, anyone who works in a role where they have to enter someone else’s home, such as police officers, community nurses, ambulance crews or domestic engineers, might find they encounter bed bug infestations and accidentally bring bed bugs home or to their place of work.

Hotels and multi-occupancy buildings often get bed bug problems due to the high turnover of people, so if you live in or frequent one of these properties, then you may come into contact with bed bugs.

Alternatively, the property could already have had an unnoticed bed bug infestation before you occupied it. Bed bugs can remain dormant for up to 500 days, so you might not know you have a bed bug problem until it’s too late.

Identifying Bed Bugs

Because of their small size and love of blood meal, bed bugs are often mistaken for other insect pests, such as fleas. However, some distinguishing signs of bed bugs include:

  • Sightings: Adult bed bugs are only 5 to 7 mm in size, so they’re very small, but you might see them crawling around on your bed frames, bed linen or other soft furnishings as they search for hiding places.
  • Itchy Bites: Because bed bugs feed primarily on human blood, you may see bed bug bites on your skin. These small, red marks are often found in a cluster on areas that are exposed while you sleep.
  • Brown Spots On Bedding: You may see small, brown marks on your bedding. These are either bed bug faeces or blood from crushed bed bugs.
  • A Sweet Smell: If you have a major bed bug infestation, then you may notice a sweet, musty smell.

If you notice any of these signs of bed bug activity, then you need to call 01724 376330 to get professional bed bug removal from the experts at Briarquest.

The Dangers Of Bed Bugs

Bed bugs can cause serious issues for homeowners and businesses alike. Once you find bed bugs in your property, they can be incredibly difficult to get rid of.

They will often lay up in the piping of your mattress, on your bed frame, under light fittings and switches or around and under your skirting boards.

In fact, they will get into every nook or cranny of your house, flat, shared occupancy premises, or hotel and wait for people to arrive to bite.

Bedbug bites can itch and may be painful. If you have a bed bug bite that gets infected, this could cause you health issues, and those with compromised immune systems might find themselves at risk of health complications from a bed bug infestation.

Hospitality businesses, in particular, are at risk of serious damage to their reputations if they find bed bugs on their property. As such, fast and efficient bed bug treatment is recommended.
