Bed Bugs Treatment
The harm of bed bugs
Bed bugs are a major problem for householders. They feed on blood and can cause skin irritation, allergic reactions as well as transmit diseases such as hepatitis B. Bed bug bites do not have to be itchy or red in order to be harmful. Even the smallest of bedbug infestations should warrant great concern because they reproduce so quickly.
Why are bed bugs so hard to treat?
Bedbugs have a natural camouflage that makes them difficult to find. Bed bugs hide in the seams of your mattress, behind baseboards or picture frames and even inside light fixtures. They can also be found living under carpets, on ceilings, electrical outlets and cracks in the walls.
Can I get sick from bed bugs?
Bedbugs can carry diseases and transmit them to humans through their bites; this is a major concern for people with weakened immune systems or who are already infected with certain diseases such as AIDS, cancer, diabetes or any condition that compromises the human immune system.
Why are bed bugs an issue for hotels, visitors, and homeowners?
Bed Bugs are pests that can infest any home or hotel room. They feed on human blood and have been known to travel from one location to another through clothes, furniture, bedding and luggage. Bed bugs pose a public health concern because they spread disease; cause skin rashes; produce allergic reactions in some people; affect mental well-being; and may cause anxiety.
What are the steps to treat bed bugs?

Bed bugs are most active at night and may be found in cracks of couches or other furniture as well.
