Bed Bugs Spreading in Sharon PA
Bed bugs are mostly found in developing countries. Previously bed bugs were rare in North America, but nowadays they have spread there too. As per the local exterminators, bed bug infestation has gone up by 50% from the previous year. Currently, Las Vegas occupies the third rank among nations where the infestation of bed bugs is at its highest. Since it is one of the top tourist spots of the country, it is not surprising at all to find bed bugs in movie theaters, hotels and other public places because they get transported from one place to another via human beings.
Bed bugs have got this name because they usually hide in the beddings and mattresses. They are about the size of an apple seed i.e. around 0.25 inches in length. These bugs are generally white or brown in color but after feeding they turn a shade of rusty red. They are wingless and flat in shape. Bed bugs feed on blood and under favorable conditions they can survive even upto one year without food. They are active mostly during the night when their hosts are asleep.
How does it infest our homes?
It is tough to detect the infestation of bed bugs. However, careful observation of the following might help in detecting them; physically spotting the bugs, bed bug bites, fecal smears and blood stains on the mattresses etc. When they are found in groups they give out an unpleasant smell. Bed bugs are generally found in furniture, bed sheets, seams of the mattress, floor cracks, behind baseboards, wallpaper and photo frames thus making it difficult to detect them.
