Get Rid of Bed Bugs

The resurgence of these insects in American homes has caused many a sleepless night — but not everything you hear is true. Here's everything you need to know to identify and get rid of these nasty insects.

5 Things You Need to Accept First
Before you start pointing fingers at the reasons your home is infested or why you do — or don't — have a bedbugs problem, you need to know this.

1. Bedbugs don't care if you home is neat or messy.
They only care that their food source, a.k.a. people, are nearby. There's also no evidence they transmit diseases. The real threat: Itchy red bites.

2. Most people wrongly identify these critters.
Entomologist Richard Pollack, Ph.D., has found fewer than 10% of the critters people identify as bedbugs actually are; that's also why he doesn't trust websites that list reports of bedbugs at hotels.

3. You should contact a professional ASAP.
"The biggest mistake people make is waiting too long to call for help, because the longer the problem goes on, the bigger of a chance they'll spread within the home and even outside of the home," says David Dunham of Go Green Bedbug Dogs. He says the first sign your home is infested is if you get bites.

4. Not everyone has skin reaction to bedbug bites.
Surprising, we know. "It's common for one person to become the host or the person getting all the bites, while their spouse or partner will get no bites at all," says Dunham. "Usually the person not getting bites will discredit their partner's concerns. But if you wake up with numerous bites, especially under your clothes, it could be bedbugs."

5. Traveling isn't the only way to pick them up.
They can easily be carried into the house on secondhand furniture, so inspect such items very carefully. Encasement products can also prevent bugs that do make it inside from hunkering down inside crevices of mattresses and box springs. But while reports of bedbugs at movie theaters and in retail stores have made headlines, it's rare that someone actually brings them home, says Gangloff-Kaufmann.
