When people ask me that how do you get bed bugs or any way to identify them, my reply is if you feel small pinches during the night or when laying on your bed but the insect is invisible then its bed bug. Well, in my experience as a pest control engineer, I often hear complains about such insects that interrupt people but never show up. We ask people if there are red marks in bedside corners, behind the wall or any part of their house. If you could spot such marks, it’d be bed bugs that are small, fast and transparent in terms of physical appearance. So how do you get bed bugs or how would you locate them? We’ve listed 4 common places where bed bugs usually dwell and here they are.
Spot # 1: Mattresses
Usually what happens, bed bugs make home in your mattresses and come out of this secret hideout in darkness. If you feel small sting while you’re on the mattress, it’s time to do something about it. We, at Liverpool Dubai, suggest using a mattress zip cover to retain bed bugs inside and have a sound sleep. These mattresses are specifically designed to stop bed bugs with their stitching pattern and material quality.
Spot # 2: Bed Frames
When people ask me that how do you get bed bugs, my answer is bed frames where these irritating insects usually reside. The interesting thing about bed bugs is that they are colorless when young and adopt red color after sucking blood from a living being. It could be you, anyone from your household or your pet that may be the prey but once they have blood inside their body, they change the color. And our suggestion to all our customers is going for IPM (Integrated Pest Management) instead of trying any pesticides that would ruin your bedframe.
Spot # 3: Back Wall
Another common spot to find bed bugs and exterminate them yourself is looking at your bedside wall where we rarely clean or mop. As I told you earlier, bed bugs live in darkness and can be considered a lone creature. During inspection, or otherwise, I ask customers to try vacuuming and sweep them away from their life before they spread all over the place.
Spot # 4: Bedside Tables
The least anyone would notice is the bedside tables where these bed bugs usually stay. They can be found in the back of beside tables. So during the vacuuming process, never forget to vacuum this area of your bedroom otherwise you’d end up leaving few bed bugs behind that are enough to grow the problem.
