Sleep Tight During the Winter Holidays with HPM!


Contrary to popular belief, bedbugs are not worse in summer months than in winter. Because they live indoors, the heat we use to keep ourselves warm also keep conditions perfect for bedbugs. Also, because we often have overnight guests or even just lots of daytime company, the likelihood that someone might accidentally "share" their bedbugs with you also increases.

If you wake up with itchy areas you didn't have when you went to sleep, you may have bedbugs, particularly if you got a used bed or other used furniture around the time the bites started. Other signs that you have bedbugs may include blood stains on your sheets or pillowcases; dark or rusty spots of bedbug excrement on sheets and mattresses, bed clothes, and walls; bedbug fecal spots, egg shells, or shed skins in areas where bedbugs hide; and/or an offensive, musty odor from the bugs' scent glands. If you suspect you have bedbugs, Homestead Pest Management can assess all the rooms in your home an come up with a specific plan for stamping them out and keeping them gone!

Contrary to popular opinion, bedbugs do not result from someone being dirty; they live soley on blood, so having them in your home is not a sign of poor housekeeping; they will infest any place that gives them a ready supply of blood.  They do not carry diseases, but their bites are very itcy and uncomfortable, and if scratched may become infected. Bedbugs may enter your home undetected by hitching a ride on luggage, clothing, used beds and furniture, and other items; their flat bodies make it possible for them to fit into the tiniest of spaces.  Bedbugs do not have nests like ants or bees, but tend to live in groups in good hiding places. Their initial hiding places are typically in mattresses, box springs, bed frames, and headboards where they have easy access to people to bite in the night. Over time, though, they may move through the bedroom, moving into any tiny, protected space. They may also spread to nearby rooms or apartments. Early detection is key in getting rid of these annoying pests as soon as possible.
