Are you covered in bed bug bites?

Are you covered in bed bug bites?

Bed Bug Bites

Have you noticed one morning that you have small, itchy insect bites all over your body?  Although they could be from a number of things, like fleas or mosquitos, most likely they’re from a bed bug infested mattress or bed frame.  Upon noticing these bites, Bye Bye Bed Bugs, San Diego County’s leading heat based extermination company, recommends that you carefully inspect your bedding and mattresses for any rust colored stains caused by bed bug droppings or from crushed bud bugs.  You also need to look for any blood colored stains on your pajamas as well.  Also, make sure you check all the cracks and crevices of your mattress, bed frame, and surrounding furniture for any signs of bed bugs.

As mentioned, bed bug bites look a lot like other insect bites but they itch all the same.  The common signs of a bed bug bite are raised red welts, itching, or lines of multiple bites in a localized area. Trying to figure out exactly what bit you is pointless.  Just to be safe, you should conduct a careful inspection of your sleeping area for any signs of bed bugs like dead bed bugs, bed bug skins, bed bug droppings, or small blood stains from over indulged bed bugs.

One thing that sets a bed bug bite apart from the rest, is the natural anesthesia that it injects prior to feeding, so that their meal doesn’t get interrupted.  Like other insect bites, they only last for a couple of weeks and can be treated with most over the counter topical ointments commonly used for releasing other nagging mosquito, flea, or bed bug bites.

So if you’ve recently been the victim of a bed bug infestation in your Carlsbad, Oceanside, San Marcos, Escondido, Encinitas, Cardiff, Solana Beach, Del Mar, La Jolla, North County or San Diego home, please contact Bye Bye Bed Bugs ASAP so that a solid inspection can be done and a personalized extermination plan can be presented to you.  As the leading Bed Bug Exterminator in San Diego County, we have over a 90% approval rate of our heat based bed bug eradication process.  See the results for yourself.  Contact us Today!
