Bed bugs are a nasty pest at any time of the year, but problems with this bug are even more likely to flare up during the wintertime. The reason issues with this pest are prone to occur during the winter is because they need to live very close to their hosts, people and pets, to survive. A warm, comfortable home is a particularly appealing location for these bugs.

These pests are a small insect that feeds on human and animal blood. They make their home in fabrics, nooks and crannies, and they only come out at night. Infestations often go unnoticed until their unfortunate hosts start to notice the bites, small red bites that can be quite itchy. These bites are not seriously hazardous, and require little to no treatment, however, no one likes to be snacked on. If you suspect that you may have a problem with these pests, the first step is to go looking. Check your bedding for fecal stains, egg cases, and molted exoskeletons.

If you discover signs of an infestation, then you will need to take steps to treat the problem. These pests are particularly difficult to get rid of, but there are both DIY and professional options. If you intent to take care of the problem on your own, you will need use heat and drying on effected materials. This can be achieved with your clothes dryer. Another option is to starve the bugs, but this takes 100 to 300 days, so this route can be impractical.

It is important to know that these bugs are very difficult to eradicate and for the sake of public health it is generally recommended that individuals with infestations of these bugs turn to professional pest control for aid in ridding their home of these pests. Professionals can assess the infestation and determine the most effective way to respond to the problem and the best products to rid your home of the insects.
