Bedbugs Are Ectoparasites
Most homeowners are worried about bedbugs because these pests can turn your life upside down. These ectoparasites are frightened because they bite humans and suck their blood. They’ll find a way to enter your home before finding a place to hide in your home. Then, they’re going to stay put until you go to bed for the night. At this point, you’re a meal waiting for bedbugs. These small pests rarely grow longer than 3/16ths of an inch so they’re difficult to spot.
Why Are Bedbugs In My Home?
Bedbugs want to enter your home because they want to suck your blood. However, you’ll find that there are numerous ways bedbugs can enter a home. First and foremost, you might’ve been unfortunate enough to stay at a bedbug-infested most. If this happens, the bedbugs in the motel room will hide in your clothes and luggage. Once the vacation is over and you return home, the bedbugs will go home with you. Although this is the most common way for bedbugs to enter American homes, it isn’t the only possibility. Living in a Houston apartment means bedbugs could travel from your neighbor’s apartment to your apartment. Finally, you may like purchasing used items. Doing so can save you money but it could lead to a bedbug infestation.
Thanks to their size and color, bedbugs can hide in the furniture. Take the item home and the bedbugs are coming with you.
