Bed Bug Treatments
Bed bug problems have exploded over the past few years as travelers pick them up in hotel and motel rooms throughout the nation and overseas. These little pests hitchhike in luggage, mostly unnoticed. They will quickly infest a home, hotel or office. Unfortunately bed bugs who feed on human blood, causing itchy bites, are active at night and have the ability to bite a person without being noticed. One who has been bitten, wakes up in the morning with red welts where the bug drew blood. These bites can result in different types of skin rashes, they can be accompanied with allergic symptoms and other problems. Bed bugs get there name from their preference of living in and near the bed, where they can feast on the occupants in the night. They are not however attracted to dirt and grime; they are drawn to warmth, blood and carbon dioxide, though a messy room offers more places to hide.
