Symptoms of bed bug bites:
Symptoms which are seen or observed by the ones who have been bitten are typically between two to ten days. This huge difference is based upon the sensitivity and factors which hype the bites. According to the research and studies, it is taken for the record that those who are prone to allergies take more time to heal as compared to others.
However, people who are prone to sensitivity get to notice following symptoms:
• Bumpy skin which is easy to detect by the uneven skin.
• Welts which are mostly red in color.
• Itchiness on the skin.
• Clusters and sore skin with redness.
• Bites in the form of groups. These are seen under the arms, neck, arms and other open body parts.
How to determine the presence of bed bugs?
See, it is not very easy to find the presence of these bugs. Instead, you have to look for the remains of bugs which are rustic in color, however, these are not marks or in the solid form. Instead, they are stains which are left with the discarded exoskeletons of the bugs.
When these bugs’ skeletons are left with the waste material (fecal matter) and not taken care or are not removed, causes rotten almond like the smell.
We all need to sleep well and sound enough to carry out the next day’s routine in the best manner. And it is only possible when there are no traces or findings of bed bugs. If you think there are bugs, then you have to take safety measures accordingly. However, if you think there isn’t any bug and you want to prevent it before they start emerging from tiny hidden corners, then you must follow the steps below:
• Cleaning of carpets:
Always remember, bed bugs find the deepest hidden places for the reproduction. They find carpet one of the best areas as its thread and woven material is deeply rooted. For that, it is a must to vacuum carpet thrice or four times in the week. And, if you are sure about the presence, then it is highly recommended to vacuum it twice, every day.
• Junk sale or garage sale:
Despite the fact that furniture in the garage and junk sales are very cheap and at times excellent in condition, it also contains bugs. So, selecting or buying used furniture is highly inappropriate, especially when you have allergies and doubts.
• Recreational places, hotels, and spas:
A thorough investigation before staying and laying on the beds in the hotels or spas (for massages, facials, etc.) should be on the checklist. As mentioned above, if you see the rustic stain or exoskeleton then it is a definite sign of bed bugs. Naturally, in this, you are not supposed to use that bed, lining, towel or anything else.
Last but not the least, you should seek professional help in case the existence of bed bugs is confirmed. Fumigation and pest control services become the only rescue.
How long do bed bugs bite last?
