Although bed bug bites may not be harmful for many people, certain others who are prone to allergic reactions or infections should seek treatment as soon as possible. Watch this video for a closer look at treating bed bug bites.
Treatment for bed bug bites becomes more important if you have blisters, a skin infection or an allergic reaction, or an abundance of bed bug bites at the same time. Those who have an allergic reaction may require antihistamines or corticosteroids, while an infection may warrant antibiotics or preventative antiseptics. If you are experiencing itching after one or more bed bug bites, your best treatment choice may also be an antihistamine or corticosteroid.

If you do not want to spend your winter sharing your home with pests, it is important to take the appropriate precautions to keep them out of the house. You can do so by eliminating their opportunities to enter the home and storing your foods appropriately. Keep reading to find out how to get started on winter pest proofing.
Even if you are not aware of their presence, pests can cause serious health concerns upon invading your home. Their droppings, saliva, and decomposing bodies can contaminate the areas in which they infest. Prevent this by making sure that it is not easy for pests to enter your home. Seal any cracks, gaps, or small holes around your doors and windows, and add a door sweep to any doors that lead outside. It also helps to store your food in airtight containers so they do not attract pests.

People tend to enjoy having their own personal space, which is why no one likes a home invasion by pests. Unfortunately, bed bugs tend to infest very thoroughly, which can be psychologically troubling for many people. Here is a look at the psychology behind bed bug infestation.
While many kinds of pests can be eliminated from the home or workplace after one fumigation by a pest control service, bed bugs are often repeat offenders. This can create a great deal of anxiety for homeowners who are either dealing with a current infestation or have dealt with one in the past. The fact that bed bugs infest to such an extensive degree makes them difficult to completely erase from the home, and this tends to make the residents uncomfortable; unfortunately, the stress that comes along with these infestations can sometimes result in paranoia, obsessive thoughts and behaviors, and other anxiety related symptoms. There are many reasons that bed bugs may disturb you: They infiltrate your home, they bite you while you are sleeping and thus vulnerable, and they are difficult to remove.
Despite the fact that they may mess with your mind, bed bugs are actually relatively harmless creatures; the psychological effects that they can bring about may be the greatest extent of their damage. It is true that bed bugs may bite you while you sleep, but they do not carry harmful diseases. Some people are immune or otherwise unattractive to bed bugs, but it is the psychological effects that result from their presence that are most harmful.
Although it may involve an extensive amount of cleaning and organization, a bed bug infestation is treatable. Talk to your pest control professionals to find out exactly how you can remove bed bugs, which in turn will alleviate your psychological distress.

Pests are drawn to your house because of the food, moisture, and shelter that is available to them. Unfortunately, they do not come without consequences. Watch this video clip for a homeowner’s guide to seasonal pest threats.
When it comes to pests, the main threats throughout the spring and summer are termites and ants. They are both capable of structural damage, but controlling the levels of moisture in your home can prevent them from causing this damage. Rodents tend to spread diseases that can cause serious health implications, especially during the winter. Be sure to seal any small holes or cracks through which these pests may enter your home when the cold weather drives them indoors.

The past few years have seen a steady prevalence of bed bug infestations across the United States. In order to protect yourself from an infestation of your home, it is important to know what signs to look for and what risk factors to reduce. Here is a look at the bed bug resurgence.
Many people are under the impression that bed bugs are more likely to infest living spaces that are messy and unkempt. However, the truth is that bed bugs will infest any living space; it is simply more difficult to detect them if your home is full of clutter. Bed bugs can hop onto a human who is lying in bed and hop off in the workplace and then climb into someone else’s suitcase and land at his or her residence. Although infestations can happen anywhere, they are more likely to occur in areas where beds are utilized by different people.
Since bed bugs use humans as vehicles to travel to different areas and spread their infestation, it stands to reason that living spaces with rapid turnovers tend to facilitate this spread. Hotels, college dorm rooms, and nursing homes are among the most likely to suffer from bed bug infestations. This is because a number of different people may use the same living facilities on a monthly, weekly, or even daily basis. This presents an abundance of opportunities for bed bugs to hitch a ride and spread their infestation.
Bed bug season tends to occur between July and September, although this year may see it last through October. The summer’s increase in bed bug infestations may be due to the trend of travelling during warmer months. The greater amount of travel or relocations, the more opportunities bed bugs are afforded to travel themselves.
