Bed bugs are very common household pests. They feed exclusively on blood, and they can be found almost everywhere. After a hearty meal, they wouldn’t need to eat again for a few months. This makes them very resilient. They can thrive in different environments.
So what we’re saying here is that they are not likely to die of natural causes if you just let them be. In order to eliminate them, you need to seek them out and kill them.
If you spot bed bug skins, exoskeletons, or shells on the floor as you sweep, chances are, you have a bed bug infestation.
How to Get Rid of Bed Bugs
The first thing you want to do is locate the bed bugs on your own—at least to confirm your suspicions. Grab a flashlight and search the bedroom. Take the sheets off your mattress, take off the pillowcases, and inspect every inch. Bed bugs can mature in about 35 days and survive up to 12 months.
They can lay eggs in corners or areas close to where you sleep. Their bite is painless, and they can stick to your skin for up to 10 minutes, during which they feed on your blood.
If you spot bed bugs, you can place them in a small container and douse them in rubbing alcohol. Make sure you wash all your clothes and clean the bedding in your room to make sure they’re all gone.
If the infestation is much larger than anticipated, or if you don’t know how to spot the tiny pests, you can always ask for professional help.
