Common Misconceptions Regarding Bed Bugs
As experienced bug control in Sarasota, we constantly hear the same misconceptions when it comes to bed bugs. Allow us to explore some of the most common here:
‘You can’t see bed bugs’ – As we explore on this page, adult bed bugs are visible with a red/brown color while even many younger bed bugs are visible, although they are a lighter color.
‘Bed bugs will only infiltrate dirty spaces’ – While clutter will certainly encourage bed bugs into your home because they can easily hide, what bed bugs seek more than anything is blood, warmth, and carbon dioxide. They can find this in nearly every home, which is why an infestation is never impossible.
‘Bed bugs only operate in the dark’ – Some people will say that leaving the lights on overnight will prevent bed bugs from leaving their hiding spaces…but this simply isn’t true. Bed bugs prefer darkness, but they will still try to bite you with the lights on.
‘Bed bug spray is all you need’ – We’ve spoken to countless people who believed that they could buy a bed bug spray and everything would magically correct itself. Unfortunately, they’re left disappointed. Instead, it’s best to tackle bed bug control in Sarasota, FL with a treatment plan to prevent bugs from spreading around the home and causing further issues.
Signs of a Bed Bug Infestation
How do you know if you have bed bugs in your home? Bed bugs can quickly infest an entire home moving around clothing, bedding, and even the vacuum cleaner. Keep an eye out for these common signs:
- Insects in and around your mattress and bedding
- Bite marks on yourself or family members
- Spots of blood or fecal matter on your bedding
- Shed bed bug skins (appearing as translucent shells)
- Musky odor in the bedroom
In many cases, bite marks only appear days after the initial contact with the bed bugs, so the time to take action is now. For bug control in Sarasota, FL, contact the friendly and efficient team at Brock 360.
