Bed bugs are the scourge of hotels and homeowners alike, as they’re often extremely difficult to get rid of. They’re small pests that live off the blood of humans and animals, and they can cause itching and rashes. They can also transmit parasites that can cause the deadly Chagas disease, which kills about 50,000 people per year globally. And while they’re usually found in mattresses, if left unchecked, bed bug populations can spread to other parts of the house.
You can have the cleanest home on the block and the bed bugs will still find their way inside. If you find yourself in this situation, don’t panic! There are ways to evict the bugs and go back to your peaceful and bug free bed.
