Frequently Asked Questions
How long do bed bug bite marks last?
It depends on your skin type and sensitivity. Usually, it takes about a day before the marks fully form and about a couple of weeks before they’re completely healed. However, if your skin is more sensitive, the process might take a little longer. Some people may need to wait an extra week.
What are the reasons for a bed bug infestation?
Like with many other pest problems, an infestation might be caused by unsanitary living conditions. This creates the perfect environment for these little bloodsuckers. However, unlike other pests, they feed on humans alone, so even if the living conditions are pristine, as long as there’s human activity, an infestation is possible. Such an infestation could be carried from an already infested area. People who travel a lot are more prone to invite bed bugs in their properties through their luggage.
Are any DIY methods for dealing with bed bugs?
There are, although they’re not nearly as effective as a professional treatment. One of the surest ways to get rid of beg bugs in your home is by vacuuming them. Just make sure you’re using a disposable bag, which you can later completely seal and throw away. Steam cleaning is another method you can try since they are vulnerable to high temperatures.
The bed bugs have made my mattress their new home. Now what?
Once they’ve settled in, bed bugs are notoriously difficult to remove. The best course of action would be getting rid of the old mattress, booking a professional bed bug extermination, and then getting a new one. Otherwise, if you get a new mattress right away, you risk it to become infested as well.
