Bedbugs are totally gross. They are ugly little parasitic bugs which think humans are just downright delicious. They are hematophagous, which means that they feed exclusively off of the blood of other animals, which makes them officially count as parasites. They particularly like the blood of humans, for a number of reasons: first of all, it is incredibly easy to get under the sheets of a human’s bed. They are warm places where they can’t be seen and are difficult to detect, which means that they can usually live under the sheets for a long time without being detected. It also helps that humans can barely see the bugs anyway. They tend to be a few millimeters long at full growth, and are brown and detectable against white sheets, but are notoriously difficult to spot unless you are specifically looking for them. They also like to live in swarms and are pretty tough to kill without just throwing out the infected mattress and sheets, which many people are loath to do. Also, when mattresses are thrown to the streets, people have a tendency to be like hey, check it out, it’s a mattress, and then they take it, and voila, the bedbugs have a new meal.

Bedbugs are going to start feeding when you are asleep and still. So it’s not like you are going to hop into your bed and suddenly start feeling bites. You will lay down, and then you will drift off and they will start eating. Generally, the bites are going to be small, as they are small critters in the first place. They tend to feed once a week or so but can live without feeding for up to a year if they are in a temperate area. Which means they can wait. There are newer bedbugs that are resistant to pesticides, but can only last 2 months without feeding. Since they generally feed at night, they can be tough to spot, when you wake up in your panicky cold sweat with the realization that tiny creatures are feasting off of your life juice. So what exactly do you want to do if you suddenly find that you have been the victim of bedbugs? Well, first of all, FREAK OUT. No seriously, this is probably not all that useful. But it’s usually inevitable that you’ll have a moment of GAHHHH. And there’s nothing wrong with that. It’s going to be a gross moment when you first find out.

Anyway, bedbugs will manifest themselves in a number of ways. Typically, you find out about the bug bites when you wake up with little bites all over the place. It’s simple enough. They look like mosquito bites, but there are usually a number of them in a specific region of your body, and rather than showing up after you’ve had your skin exposed, they show up when you go to sleep and you have your skin covered. No mosquito net will stop these. Generally, you’ll get tiny bite marks on the skin, and you’ll think, oh God, this sucks. The health effects are relatively limited. You aren’t likely to get infected unless you scratch at the bites a lot, and the better idea is to get some decent lotion or something like that to calm down the inevitable itchiness. In fact, the biggest danger of the bedbug infestation is discomfort and general psychological spasmodic. You will probably be walking down the street, coming home from the grocery, and then you’ll suddenly just be like GAAAAAHHHHH and will shiver uncontrollably until the grossness feels purged from your body.

The problem with bedbugs is that it is never entirely clear on whether or not bedbugs are the problem. That’s because the only way to diagnose them is to actually find the bedbug in your bed. You can find a number of other problems that can be considered similar, such as other bug bites, chicken pox, etc. You can diagnose them otherwise by finding three bites in a row. These are referred to as breakfast lunch and dinner, and they also don’t go near the sweaty places where skin meets other skin, like the armpits or groin as much. They usually just go for an open skin. If you want to get rid of them, you generally need to get an exterminator. Throwing out your bed may not be sufficient because they may not just be on your bed. They may be elsewhere, just waiting for you to put a new bed in for them to invest. You can rest easy, though, it doesn’t mean you practice poor hygiene, it just means they’ve gotten into your house somehow. There have been worldwide outbreaks of bedbugs in recent years. Another thing we can thank globalization for. Seriously though, they have been spreading because they can travel in bags, on clothes, and then find a place to roost when they come to a stop. These are rapidly spreading parasites, and there is no lack of food out there for them.

But yeah. Treatment is hiring someone to take care of the problem. Have them come in and go mafia on them bedbugs behinds. Killing bedbugs, we should underline, is a pretty difficult thing to do, as you kind of have to kill them all. And once you do kill them, if they just keep coming back, they are hiding somewhere. You may need to treat clothing, shoes, carpets, all sorts of things before they are really gotten rid of. This often is a totally maddening process, which means that you may have to even move apartments. Avoid bedbug infections by only buying new mattresses and bed sheets rather than taking them from someone else. Don’t be the one who gets them from a streetside or whatever. It’s a bad idea. You can also act quickly. If you are bitten, identify it quickly, and you can get it nipped in the bud before they become impossible to stop. Good luck in getting rid of those bedbugs.
