More About Dallas Bedbugs
Cimex lectularius or bedbugs are one of the most feared pests in the world because they’re ectoparasites. These pests tend to feed primarily on blood. While they will accept canine and feline blood, they want your blood. They’ll stay close to their preferred food source, so they’re going to hide in your mattress and bed frame. Once you’ve gone to sleep, the bugs will bite you and suck your blood. Then, they’ll return to their hiding place, and you’ll never realize they were there. Since they’re only 3/16ths of an inch, they’re hard to spot and they won’t wake you when crawling on your body.
Causes Of Bedbugs In Dallas
Once you’ve figured out how bedbugs enter Dallas homes, you’ll know how to keep them out. How can bedbugs sneak into a home? The answers are plentiful, so you’ll want to learn about the most common methods. First and foremost, bedbugs may enter your home after you’ve obtained used items. The used items you purchased might’ve come from a home that was infested with bedbugs. If this is the case, bedbugs are likely hiding in the used items. They could be hiding in the clothes and furniture you purchased. Once these items reach your home, the bedbugs will invade your home as well.
Many bedbug infestations are linked to infested motels. Going on a vacation can be relaxing, but you have to worry about staying at a bedbug-infested motel. Pick the wrong motel and your luggage is likely going to be filled with bedbugs before the night is finished. Again, you’ll return home and the bedbugs will hitch a ride in your luggage. Bedbugs can travel a decent distance so living next to a home with bedbugs may cause your home to become infested too.
How Dangerous Is A Bedbug Bite?
Since bedbugs bite pets and humans, you may suspect that they’re one of the most dangerous pests. Thankfully, they’re not. Although they will bite you, they will not infect you with dangerous diseases. As a result, they’re less dangerous than mosquitoes and other pests, but they can cause other problems. A bedbug infestation will cause you to lose sleep and that can decrease your immunity and make you sick. Furthermore, they’re a nuisance and they’ll ruin your property’s value.
