First things first: it should be clarified that bed bugs infestations have nothing to do with sanitary conditions and cleanliness of a residence. As such, regardless of how clean or messy your household may be, it doesn’t really have any role in inviting or keeping out the bed bugs. These nasty pests are actually human blood suckers that go far and wide in search for quenching their bloodlust. They make their way into your home with a plan, which they execute to perfection. This so called “master plan” is described in the following stages below:

Bed Bug Bite Symptoms

{cke_protected}{C}%3C!%2D%2D%20wp%3Aparagraph%20%2D%2D%3E 
While some people might have no reaction to bed bug bites, most people experience some sort of an allergic reaction. Bed bug symptoms can vary depending on the severity of the bite, the number of bites and the persons skin sensitivity. Normally, when a bed bug bites, it injects some saliva inside the skin. It is the bed bug saliva that can trigger a response from the immune system, thereby causing the region to get itchy, red, and swelled up. Bed bug bites may also be aligned or grouped together in a particular region, mostly along the edge of the exposed skin.
{cke_protected}{C}%3C!%2D%2D%20%2Fwp%3Aparagraph%20%2D%2D%3E {cke_protected}{C}%3C!%2D%2D%20wp%3Aparagraph%20%2D%2D%3E
The reaction to the bites can occur instantly, but in rare cases, it might take up to two weeks to show. While bed bugs are not known to transmit diseases, they can cause other physical and psychological discomfort.
{cke_protected}{C}%3C!%2D%2D%20%2Fwp%3Aparagraph%20%2D%2D%3E {cke_protected}{C}%3C!%2D%2D%20wp%3Aparagraph%20%2D%2D%3E
The bites are also very itchy if an allergic reaction occurs, producing a sensation of burning in the region where the bite took place (similar to a mosquito bite). Scratching this area may cause further swelling and even bleeding in some cases, so it is advisable to refrain from scratching your skin. Using an anti-itch cream will decrease the itchiness and help get rid of bed bug bite marks quicker. You will not feel anything at the time you are being bitten, since the bed bugs put a little anesthesia in your body before they bite you.


Are Bed Bug Bites Itchy?

{cke_protected}{C}%3C!%2D%2D%20wp%3Aparagraph%20%2D%2D%3E 
One of the most frequent questions a bed bug exterminator gets asked is; are bed bug bites itchy?
{cke_protected}{C}%3C!%2D%2D%20%2Fwp%3Aparagraph%20%2D%2D%3E {cke_protected}{C}%3C!%2D%2D%20wp%3Aparagraph%20%2D%2D%3E
Bed bug bites can be itchy depending on whether a person has a reaction to the bite or not. If there is reaction, the intensity of the reaction, the bite, and the frequency of the bite will determine how itchy the bites are.
{cke_protected}{C}%3C!%2D%2D%20%2Fwp%3Aparagraph%20%2D%2D%3E {cke_protected}{C}%3C!%2D%2D%20wp%3Aparagraph%20%2D%2D%3E
After some time of being bitten, you might feel a burning sensation on the affected portion of the skin. If you scratch over the bite, there is a potential that a secondary infection can result leading to swelling and even bleeding in some cases.

How Long Do Bed Bug Bites Last?


Bed bug bites usually last from a few days to three weeks, depending on the individual reaction to the bed bug bite, after which they disappear. More server allergic reactions will last longer, but three weeks is usually the longest a bed bug bit will last. However, you should take care not to scratch over the bites and treat the area with anti-itch creams and ice. This usually helps relieve the itchiness and helps prevent scratching, which decreases the chances of rashes and bleeding.

{cke_protected}{C}%3C!%2D%2D%20%2Fwp%3Aparagraph%20%2D%2D%3E {cke_protected}{C}%3C!%2D%2D%20wp%3Aparagraph%20%2D%2D%3E
For most of our clients bed bugs cause more of a psychological problem than a physical one. The fact that you do not even get to know when a beg bug is biting you can alone cause a lot of anxiety and fear, inducing insomnia and other sleeping problems. Therefore, as soon as you find out about a bed bug infestation, you should seek professional help from a local bed bug exterminator such as Clark Pest Remedy. We will quickly and effectively get rid of your bed bugs.

In the majority of cases, trying to exterminate bed bugs by yourself will not work since normal insecticides and herbicides do not work on these pesky little insects. In fact, the use of these repellents might even be dangerous for you, your family, guests and/or your pets. Therefore, you should only rely on a professional when it comes to the extermination of bed bugs.

How To Kill Bed Bugs Guide

If you do not wish to hire a bed bug exterminator and would like to take matters into your own hands, here are some things you can do by yourself at home or at your business to help with your bed bug infestation:

  • Get rid of furniture and other infested items{cke_protected}{C}%3C!%2D%2D%20%2Fwp%3Aparagraph%20%2D%2D%3E {cke_protected}{C}%3C!%2D%2D%20wp%3Aheading%20%2D%2D%3E{cke_protected}{C}%3C!%2D%2D%20%2Fwp%3Aheading%20%2D%2D%3E {cke_protected}{C}%3C!%2D%2D%20wp%3Aparagraph%20%2D%2D%3EOne way of dealing with bed bugs is getting rid of furniture, mattresses, curtains, clothes and other clutter that has been badly infested by bed bugs. In turn, the entire home can be fumigated and new furniture and other items brought in. This method by itself will not ensure that your bed bug problem is solved and so other methods are required.

{cke_protected}{C}%3C!%2D%2D%20%2Fwp%3Aparagraph%20%2D%2D%3E {cke_protected}{C}%3C!%2D%2D%20wp%3Aheading%20%2D%2D%3E
  • Hot water cleaning and highest heat setting In case you have been traveling and suspect that you are carrying bed bugs in your bags, ensure the luggage and any other bags have been vacuumed or professionally cleaned by your local dry cleaner. Make sure your linens and clothes are washed using the hottest water settings available before drying using the highest level of heat setting you can find for about 40-60 minutes. It is recommended to pack all your clothes into bags and take them to your local dry cleaners for expert treatment.
{cke_protected}{C}%3C!%2D%2D%20%2Fwp%3Aheading%20%2D%2D%3E {cke_protected}{C}%3C!%2D%2D%20wp%3Aparagraph%20%2D%2D%3E{cke_protected}{C}%3C!%2D%2D%20%2Fwp%3Aparagraph%20%2D%2D%3E {cke_protected}{C}%3C!%2D%2D%20wp%3Aheading%20%2D%2D%3E
  • Vacuuming     Vacuuming is the most effective DIY cleaning method for bed bug elimination. As the name suggests, you need a vacuum cleaner to get this job done. The vacuum cleaner needs to be powerful enough to suck in bed bugs from hard to reach places like outlets, under vents, bed and furniture crevices and should be equipped with HEPA (High-Efficiency Particulate Air) which will ensure small particles like bed bugs do not escape from the vacuum once they are vacuumed. Of course, a regular vacuum might also do the trick, but an HEPA-equipped one will make sure that bed bugs and their eggs are restricted from spreading out. You will also need a crevice tool along with the vacuum cleaner so as to ensure that small cracks and spaces are cleaned out precisely. A brush attachment will also come handy in reaching those hard to reach bed bugs.This process is quite easy and effective but needs to be done extensively and thoroughly to make sure all bed bugs are vacuumed. Remember, only 2 bed bugs are required to start spreading again, and if you don’t get rid of all of them, before you know it they are back full-force.
{cke_protected}{C}%3C!%2D%2D%20%2Fwp%3Aheading%20%2D%2D%3E {cke_protected}{C}%3C!%2D%2D%20wp%3Aparagraph%20%2D%2D%3E{cke_protected}{C}%3C!%2D%2D%20%2Fwp%3Aparagraph%20%2D%2D%3E {cke_protected}{C}%3C!%2D%2D%20wp%3Aparagraph%20%2D%2D%3E{cke_protected}{C}%3C!%2D%2D%20%2Fwp%3Aparagraph%20%2D%2D%3E {cke_protected}{C}%3C!%2D%2D%20wp%3Aheading%20%2D%2D%3E
  • Steam treatmentSteam treatment is a highly effective process, which can kill bed bugs at all life stages including bed bug eggs. If you believe the problem you are facing with bed bugs is a highly critical one (in case you noticed the problem once bed bug bites were becoming regular and extensive), then it is recommended that you call your local bed bug exterminator, however if you are still up for doing it yourself then you may want to invest in a steam cleaner to effectively attempt to deal with the issue at hand and make sure all bed bugs are completely removed off your property. Although it needs to be combined with a few other methods such as pesticides, steam is still an effective method on its own.  You can clear out items such as plush furniture, including chairs and couches, and mattresses using steam. The only downside to this process is that it only kills the bugs that it can reach. Plus, keeping track of the contact time is also crucial for heat. It is recommended that you move the nozzle of the steam cleaner rather slowly so as to ensure time of exposure and depth are both maximum. This method should be repeated several times on all furniture, floors as well as any crevices where you suspect bed bugs are hiding.
  • . Bed leg interceptors        Bed bugs do not really feed on a person when he or she is not asleep. They have a way of waiting for months or weeks until people are in bed and asleep before crawling out fast, feed and then return into their hiding area. They only feed between 10-15 minutes and enter the apartment or house by hitchhiking on bags, clothing, shoes and other items. In many cases, to bite a person, the bed bug leaves its hiding place, crawls along the floor before climbing up the bed leg to start sucking on human blood. While this happens often, breaking the cycle can help slow the bed bug infestation by making it harder for them to get to their human food source simply by buying good bed bed leg interceptors, inexpensive small devices that trap bed bugs and help warn you beforehand about an infestation and perhaps help control it before it is too late. However, bed leg interceptors by themselves will not solve your bedbug problem and in most cases professional bed bug exterminator is required to eliminate the problem for good.

  • Bed bug proof mattress covers   It is important to clean infested items in your home and prevent them from becoming re-infested with bed bugs until the problem is eradicated. Bed bugs cannot survive steam and hot temperatures so wash your bed covers, linens, laundry hamper, and any fabric/material items you have that could harbor bed bugs on high heat. Dry on the hottest setting as well and be sure to store the newly cleaned items in sealed plastic bags or sealed storage containers. For small items that you cannot wash or are dry clean only, you should put them in your dryer on high heat for at least 30 minutes.

  • Use of pesticides      By far, the usage of pesticides is indeed the best way to get rid of bed bugs. Pesticides are an effective tool for fighting off bed bugs. But it is recommended that you hire a professional pest exterminator like Clark Pest Remedy for this job as only qualified servicemen are capable of applying pesticides effectively so as to make sure that the bed bugs are killed off permanently and there are no chances of re-infestation or harm to humans and/or pets.Bed bugs also migrate across vents and cracks from one flat to another in condos, apartment buildings and other residences. This means a building-wide pest control effort is highly vital. Rubbing alcohol, using kerosene and bug sprays sold over the counter are not only ineffective according to the experts,, but also fire hazards that could cause serious damage to a house and belongings  If you do consider hiring a professional bed bug exterminator for your bed bug issue, you need to make sure to get a well-trained, experienced and fully licensed and insured company for it such as Clark Pest Remedy. The main point in this process that you should remember at all times is that usage of pesticides alone doesn’t guarantee the eradication of bed bugs. This is why you, or whoever you are consulting for the job, need to carry out several accompanying methods to complete the job. At Clark Pest Remedy we will totally exterminate your bed bug problem or your money back guaranteed!

  • Bedbugs or bed bugs are small parasitic insects of the family Cimicidae (most commonly Cimex lectularius). The term usually refers to species that prefer to feed on human blood. All insects in this family live by feeding exclusively on the blood of warm-blooded animals. The name 'bedbug' is derived from the insect's preferred habitat of houses and especially beds or other areas where people sleep. Bedbugs, though not strictly nocturnal, are mainly active at night and are capable of feeding unnoticed on their hosts.

  • A number of health effects may occur due to bed bugs including skin rashes, psychological effects and allergic symptoms. Diagnosis involves both finding bed bugs and the occurrence of compatible symptoms. Treatment is otherwise symptomatic.

  • Bedbugs have been known by a variety of names including wall louse, mahogany flat, crimson rambler, heavy dragoon, chinche, and redcoat. Largely eradicated as pests in the developed world (primarily through the use of DDT) in the early 1940s, bedbugs have seen a resurgence since about 1995.

Bites & Concerns

    Bed Bug bites - Atlanta Georgia
​Bed bugs usually bite people at night while they are sleeping. 

They feed by piercing the skin with an elongated beak through which they withdraw blood. Engorgement takes about three to 10 minutes, yet the person seldom knows they are being bitten. 

Bed bugs normally do not reside on people like head or body lice ? immediately after feeding they crawl off and reside elsewhere to digest their meal. 

Symptoms after being bitten vary with the individual. Many develop an itchy red welt or localized swelling within a day or so of the bite. Others have little or no reaction, and in some people the reaction is delayed. 

Unlike flea bites that occur mainly around the ankles, bed bugs feed on any skin exposed while sleeping (face, neck, shoulders, back, arms, legs, etc.). The welts and itching are often wrongly attributed to other causes, such as mosquitoes. For these reasons, infestations may go a long time unnoticed, and can become quite large before being detected.
The likelihood of bed bugs increases if the affected individual has been traveling, or had acquired used beds or furnishings before symptoms started to appear. Bed bugs also are suspect if you wake up with itchy bites you did not have when you went to sleep. Conversely, it is important to recognize that not all bites or bite-like reactions are due to bed bugs. Confirmation requires finding and identifying the bugs themselves, which often requires the help of a professional.
