It is difficult to kill bed bugs all by yourself. They are chaotic, filthy and the size of a rice grain! We recommend that apart from trying the methods to kill bed bugs naturally, you should seriously think of hiring professional exterminators.
Recently, bed bugs have created numerous problems not just for New Yorkers, but they’ve also terrorized the neighboring areas. Bed bugs are nocturnal parasites that appear to be reddish-brown in color. A bed bug’s size resembles that of a rice grain. It feeds on the blood of mammals, usually humans. Bed bug bites develop into red itchy swells on that particular area. The reproduction rate of bed bugs is very high. Hence, if left unchecked, its population may increase with a shocking rate of 100% within some days!
Bed bugs can live in almost any crevice or protected location. The most common place to find them is the bed or where people sleep. This is especially true during the early stages of a problem. As infestations grow larger, the bugs tend to move beyond beds into other locations making control more difficult. Since bed bugs don't fly, and not able to walk very far on their own, they rely on us to move them from one place to another.
Dealing with a bug infestation of any kind is never fun. You probably can't prevent bed bugs from entering your home. This is a new fact of life, even though it's a repeat from an earlier era. But you can prevent a bed bug infestation using some common sense and a little discipline.
