Bed bugs are not a nice pest to find in your home and will need removing ASAP. They are able to spread at an alarming rate by attaching themselves to unsuspecting hosts, getting into items like clothing, bed sheets and furniture. If you have been in contact with bed bugs elsewhere, such as in a hotel or at someone else’s house, they can very easily move with you into your own home.
The main threat from bed bugs is their nasty bite. The bites are usually red and very itchy, causing a lot of discomfort. And bed bugs will bite multiple times all over the body, making them one of the most unpleasant types of pest to encounter. If you think you have bed bugs, examine your sheets and furniture very closely – you can usually spot the adult bugs as they are about the size of an apple seed.
