Does Spring Weather Impact Bed Bug Activity
March 22, 2017
Spring is in the air! It’s already starting to warm up and soon it will be gorgeous outside. Plants will begin to bloom, the sun will warm things up, and it will be time to start spring cleaning. Won’t it be nice to let the fresh air into our homes?
In addition to all of the great things to look forward to in the spring, we have to also be aware of the increases and decreases in pest activity around our homes. Some pests that have overwintered will head back outdoors, but many will start to grow in numbers. There is one particular pest that will be totally unaffected by the weather and will stick around all year long.
Bed bugs are a year-round pest that will haunt you in the evening, especially in your bed. These little guys are so tiny you may never actually see them. They do not cause any illnesses, but they live on the blood of humans and can leave an itchy rash or welts on the skin. Bed bugs are hearty little pests that can live up to a year without a blood meal and can withstand extreme cold and heat; not to mention that they can hide really well, which is why they are so hard to get rid of. If a bed bug infestation is not treated, they will continue to increase in numbers and that can lead to stress, lack of sleep, a lot of discomfort, and itching.
You can tell that you have an infestation if you or others in your home are experiencing tiny bites at night. You may also find tiny rust looking stains on your pajamas or bedding from fecal matter. Another sign to look for are cast/shed bed bug exoskeletons or bed bug carcasses in sofa creases, under beds, on bed frames, or in the creases of bedding. Even if you don’t see any signs, you may want to have an inspection to find out for sure and take precautionary measures to prevent an infestation in the future.
