Don't Let the Bed Bugs Bite!

Don't let the bed bugs bite...literally! Although bed bugs can dine on any warm-blooded animal, they primarily dine on humans. Bed bugs do not transmit diseases, but their bites can become red, itchy welts. These hitchhikers can be found anywhere we go -homes, schools, hotels, retail stores and public transportation. Here are some bed bug prevention tips:

  • Vacuum suitcases after returning from a vacation

  • Check your bedsheets for blood spots

  • Consider bringing a large plastic trash bag to keep your suitcase in during hotel stays

  • Carry a small flashlight to assist you with quick visual inspections.

  • Never bring second-hand furniture, especially mattresses and box springs, into a home without thoroughly examining for signs of a bed bug infestation. You might consider having a pest control professional inspect the furniture as it is difficult to detect an infestation if you are untrained (we can't stress this one enough!)

  • Regularly inspect areas where pets sleep for signs of bed bugs

  • Call Leave Me Bee Pest Control for a free inspection.
