How do you get Bed Bugs
If you think a clean house will stop you getting bed bugs, think again. Even the most amazingly, ridiculously, ‘get-a-life’ spotless house can get bed bugs. This prompts the question, “how do you get bed bugs?”
Bed bugs are the ultimate hitchhikers. And excellent at hide and seek.
Used furniture is often the culprit. If you see a great looking chair by the side of the road, don’t be too quick to grab it. There could be a very good reason it’s by the side of the road!
Used clothes or old books can also be housing bed bugs. Or that old painting you picked up in the op shop or inherited from Auntie Faye.
But even if you’re the type of person who never buys anything second-hand, that doesn’t mean you can’t get bed bugs.
Depending on where it is from and how it is stored in the factory, even new furniture can have bed bugs in it.
And even a thorough inspection for bedbugs is no guarantee you will find them as they can be really, really hard to spot. That’s because of the way they are shaped. Their flattened body means they can easily hide in small places, within a bed frame or a picture frame.
And if you ever travel for work or play, or have visitors to your house that do, you may unwittingly get a small, unwanted souvenir.
Hotel rooms can often house bed bugs – even the five star ones! And bedbugs can easily travel home with you in your luggage. Or on you. Because although bedbugs don’t cling to people, they can be on your clothes or personal belongings.
You can even get bedbugs from commercial laundry machines. And even more surprising, from vacuum cleaners. That’s because a vacuum cleaner that has been used in a room with bed bugs can then transfer them to your room.
And even if you don’t accidentally bring them into your home, bed bugs can even make their own way there. Particularly if they are disturbed in their current home, if there is a food shortage (i.e. their host has left) or there is simply a shortage of harbouring spaces ie if the infestation has literally grown too big. If you’re in an apartment or in a house that is close to its neighbours, bed bugs can easily make that journey.
Now you know how you get bed bugs, how do you get rid of them?
Because of the bed bugs unique ability to spread and to hide, inspection and bedbug treatments must be far more thorough and extensive than with many other pests. That’s why it’s so important to call the experts in as soon as you even suspect you may have a problem.
