Bed bugs are a serious problem in Tampa. Infestations are becoming more common, and they are hard to detect in the early phases. Bed bugs are unique compared to a lot of other pest infestations. Where other pests may come into your home looking to share your food and to find shelter, bed bugs are specifically looking for you, and feed on you as you sleep.

Bed Bugs Can Be Hard To Identify

Bed bug infestations can be difficult to identify in the early phases due to the fact that bed bugs tend to hide during the day. They are nocturnal in their habits, and they tend to avoid bright lights. Bed bugs tend to nest under mattresses, behind baseboards, under carpets, behind power outlets, and behind wall switches. Everything may look normal during the day, but bed bugs will come hunting for you when the sun goes down.

Are Bed Bugs In My House Harmful To My Health?

Bed bugs aren’t venomous and they aren’t associated with the spread of diseases, but they do in fact have the ability to cause health problems. They are known to cause allergic reactions when they bite you. This reaction is due to the fact that they inject their saliva into you while they feed, to prevent your blood from coagulating. They are also associated with infections, which can form around the area of their bites. They can cause insomnia, because their biting and feeding behavior can cause you to lose sleep. Finally, they can weigh on you mentally, as you worry about being bitten and how to get rid of them.
