Living with bed bugs is no fun. They get into your home, they climb into your bed, and they feast on your blood while you sleep at night. The next morning you wake up with tiny red raised itchy dots along your skin. It’s enough to drive you crazy, not to mention the feeling that your home is not clean, although that may be far from the truth. Bed bugs will infest any home, no matter how clean or dirty it is.
Bed bugs are tiny little reddish-brown parasites that need to feed on the blood of humans in order to survive. They are extremely hardy. They travel on shoes, clothes, bags, and other items from place to place and can go several months without a blood meal. And they can easily withstand hot and cold temperatures. This is why they are so difficult to treat, especially with do-it-yourself methods. In most cases, professional bed bug treatments by a trained professional will be needed to eliminate every single bed bug.
In the fall, there seems to be an explosion of bed bug activity due to all of the summertime travel which inadvertently brings bed bugs from relatives' homes or any other place that was visited. Once they arrive in your home, bed bugs can reproduce rapidly and develop into an infestation that becomes out-of-control by fall.
DIY treatment methods can be costly, time-consuming, and messy, not to mention, in many instances, completely ineffective.
