It can be hard to imagine sleeping with insects that feed on your blood—that is, until you discover a bed bug problem in your home. If you don't deal with these parasitic pests promptly, they can quickly spread from the bedroom to the rest of the house. If you have been trying to get rid of bed bugs using DIY control products, you already know how hard it is to get rid of these pests.

This article will answer the most common questions about a bed bug invasion, including how to identify the bites and what other problems they can cause. We'll also provide tips to help you keep these insects from returning. Continue reading to learn how to achieve successful bed bug control in Miami-Dade County with the pros from The PEST Group.

Is This A Bed Bug Bite?

Bed bug bites are often mistaken for bites from other pests like fleas, mosquitoes, and spiders. But when the bites keep appearing, you may start getting suspicious. Bed bugs bite exposed skin while you sleep, and they typically occur in clusters of three to five bites that form a zig-zag pattern.

Some lucky people do not react to the bites at all. Most people have an allergic reaction that causes red, itchy bumps or, in rare cases, severe swelling, itching, and hives. If you suspect these pests are in your home, contact us today at The PEST Group for assistance identifying and eliminating them.

How Bad Is It To Have Bed Bugs In My House?

Thankfully, bed bugs don't spread diseases or inject venom like other pests, but they can still take a psychological toll on your family. Anxiety, nightmares, and insomnia are common complaints during an infestation. Additionally, trying to eliminate these elusive pests on your own using store-bought products can cause significant stress and is usually a waste of time and money.

Bed bugs breed rapidly, with females laying up to five eggs daily that mature into reproductive adults in about three weeks. The longer these insects are in your home, the worse the problem will get. Contact The PEST Group to learn how we can get rid of bed bugs and help you get back to having a good night's sleep.

How Do I Get Rid Of Bed Bugs In My House Fast?

Working with a professional pest control company is the best way to get rid of these pests quickly and completely. The PEST Group offers various bed bug treatment options to ensure the eradication of the bugs and their eggs, no matter how widespread the infestation is. Contact us today with any questions or to learn more about our bed bug control services.

How Do I Prevent Bed Bugs From Coming Back?

Perhaps the most crucial question is how to prevent another bed bug infestation from occurring. Unlike other insects that enter your home from outdoors, bed bugs are hitchhikers that catch a ride indoors on someone's belongings. The following list provides tips to avoid another bed bug problem:

  • Avoid placing bags on the floor of public transportation.

  • Inspect hotel rooms for signs of bugs before unpacking.

  • Vacuum suitcases when you get home to remove any stray bugs or eggs.

  • Regularly wash your bedding on the highest heat setting allowed.
