How Do You Get Bed Bugs?
Bed bugs are travelers. When you have bed bugs, it’s usually because they got into your suitcase, or were in some used item you bought like furniture or they jumped onto your clothes while you were at a neighbor’s house. It’s also not uncommon for bed bugs to infest an item that was in an infested area such as a purse or backpack. They don’t just show up because your home isn’t clean enough. In fact, that actually doesn’t matter to them at all. But if there’s food nearby, that can draw them as well.
What are bed bugs?
Bed bugs are tiny parasitic insects that drink blood. If you have three small, itchy, red bites on your skin, you most likely have bed bugs. They’ll typically drink your blood but they also eat hair, dead skin, and nails. Fortunately, bed bugs almost never carry dangerous diseases. Unfortunately, that doesn’t mean they aren’t incredibly annoying or frustrating. They can also cause allergic reactions.
While bed bugs can be seen with the naked eye, they’re usually pretty hard to spot because they hide in small cracks. Some of their frequent hiding places include couches, pillows, headboards, crown moldings, mattresses, and upholstered furniture.

Bed Bug Exterminator In Greenville SC – FAQs
How did I become infested with bed bugs?
Bed bugs are masters of concealment. Even without a blood meal, their slim flat bodies allow them to fit into the smallest of spaces and stay there for extended periods of time. Bed bugs are typically transported from location to location as people travel.
Bed bugs hide in the seams and folds of luggage, overnight bags, folded clothes, bedding, and furniture, among other places. Most people are unaware that they are transporting stow-away bed bugs from location to location, infecting areas as they go.
Do bed bug sprays really work?
Bed bug sprays and aerosol bug bombs are only moderately effective; however, they will not reach their intended target if not properly applied. As a result, hiring a professional exterminator company to apply these products strategically will yield better results.
If you have bed bug bites, how can you get rid of them?
Using anti-itch and antiseptic creams can be beneficial. Skin irritations can become infected if left untreated; consult a doctor if this is the case.
How can bed bugs be prevented?
Preventing bed bugs from entering your home is difficult if you frequent high-traffic areas such as movie theaters, retail dressing rooms, and hotels. It is preferable, but not always possible, to limit the amount of time your clothes, purse, luggage, and other garments are susceptible to a bed bug infestation. When you return from places like these, wash your clothes right away.
