Aside from being highly irritating and a big job to get rid of, bed bugs can cause some embarrassment for families who find they have arrived in their home uninvited. These tiny little bloodsucking creatures can cause a decent amount of upset and seem to be showing up around parts of Brisbane more often.
Although bed bugs are usually associated with unclean living conditions, they can also make their way into the homes of clean homes too. Naturally, there are things you can do to try and prevent or get rid of these pesky bugs. The only real way to be sure they have been eradicated properly is by enlisting our professional services at Bob Gunn Termite Solutions.
Snuggle up Tight
Bed bugs love the warmth, so they will often be found close to their oblivious, sleeping, warm-blooded host. They feed on a cycle of 5-10 days and will stay close to their host, feeding mostly just before dawn. You generally won’t notice anything at first as they inject saliva that contains anaesthetics into your skin before feeding.
Where Are They Hiding?
They can be found in the seams of mattresses, in bed frames, old furniture, wallpaper and more, as mentioned. The more cluttered and unkempt a place is, the easier it is for them to hide out. But then again, well-organised and clean spaces can be taken over also.
Hotels or places that have a lot of different people going through, such as hospitals, can tend to suffer from bed bug infestations more easily as they can be transported around in luggage and on clothing.
Itchy and Irritating
Those suffering from bed bugs can find they become quite uncomfortable during the day and at night. Because the lesions are itchy and can become infected, those affected can find themselves missing sleep and feeling quite irritated by the bites and possibly the idea of bed bugs infesting their home.

Luckily, there is an easy solution to these annoying uninvited guests and that is to contact our team at Bob Gunn Termite Solutions. We have the experience and the knowledge to rid your home of bed bugs so you can sleep easy and stop scratching sooner than you think.
