Bed bugs have achieved fame in recent years, due to a widespread outbreak. Although many people mistakenly believe that only people with dirty homes can be saddled with bed bugs, the truth is that they’re extremely common, even for people who live in the cleanest of homes.
What Are Bed Bugs?
Bed bugs are small parasitic pests that feed off blood. They’re around 40,000 years old, which means they’ve been plaguing people and animals for thousands of years. While they can feed off of any mammal, their favorite meal is a human. There is no treatment plan — the only solution is a complete bed bug removal by a professional bed bug exterminator.
If you think you have bed bugs, you probably do. However, some people can mistake an allergic reaction to soap or other detergents for the bites. Additionally, some people suspect they’ve been bitten by bed bugs when it’s another type of pest that’s responsible. If you’re not sure about what’s plaguing you, give the bed bug removal experts at Budget Pest Control a call. The bites are very specific so we can usually help you determine if you need bed bug extermination or another type of pest removal.
