When you wake up to numerous bites on your legs or body, it is the first
sign that you may have a problem with pests in your house. You may need
bed bug treatment or
other forms of pest control, but it is important to follow these next steps when you’ve been
bitten during the night:
Diagnose the Bite
If you have felt yourself being bitten when you get into bed, or you wake
up with mysterious bites, then it is crucial to identify the bites and
the pest causing them. While many bites may itch and annoy you, they can
also be transmitting diseases or harming you with venom. In order to diagnose
the bite, it is best to find the pest that is biting you. There are several
types of bugs that will hide in your sheets and bed, such as bed bugs,
spiders, and fleas.
Hire Pest Control
Even if you have not diagnosed the bite or pest, you should still call
a pest control company. If you let a possible infestation worsen, then
you risk further damage to yourself, your home, and your possessions.
A pest control company can come into your home to look for other signs
of the pest, and the professionals may even be able to diagnose the bites
you have received. If the pest is identified, then the pest control company
can suggest different types of pest control services, such as spider or
bed bug treatment.
Prevent Future Bites
Once the pest has been identified, it is crucial to prevent future bites
and infestations. While many preventative measures include cleaning your
house often, decluttering storage areas, and putting away leftover food,
bed bug preventatives can differ. To prevent future bed bug infestations,
always inspect hotel rooms you visit and clean your clothes as soon as
you return from vacations.

bed bugs in Orange County and San Diego are not pests to ignore, especially if
