There’s a new gang of toughs to beware of. They travel in packs and are quite ugly. They have nothing on their minds but bad things and destruction. Like all bottom dwellers they attack when you are least expecting it. In this case, it is while you are asleep. They gang up on you as you lie in bed alone and ravage your body one drop of blood at a time. Of course we are speaking of bedbugs. If you happen to cohabit with these nasty critters, it’s time to get to your nearest neighborhood walk-in clinic.
Bed bugs have been around for a long time, though lately they are receiving a lot of press due to the fact that their numbers have multiplied dramatically in many big cities. If just the words “bed bugs” is enough to make your skin crawl, just imagine what it would be like to share a mattress with them and find their insidious blood-dripping bites all over your flesh? You would be lucky to live near a professional walk in clinic if these evil insects find you.
This article will concentrate on the Top Three Bed Bug Myths. There is a lot of information out there regarding these creatures, but not all of it is true. Read on to find out the truth regarding these nocturnal nightmares.
Number Three Bed Bug Myth
Bed Bugs are so small you cannot see them.
FALSE! Believe it or not bed bugs are not microscopic and you can see them with your bare eyes. Be careful not to take a magnifying glass to them or you will find yourself regurgitating in your mouth due to their nastiness. When bed bugs are young they are approximately the size of a poppy seed. As they grow older they will reach the size of an apple seed. An apple seed! That’s not small at all. Get to a primary care doctor or walk in clinic immediately if you believe you have been bitten by bed bugs.
Number Two Bed Bug Myth
Bed Bugs only live on beds.
FALSE! Although bed bugs love to dwell inside mattresses, these are not the only places you will find thriving communities of these awful itchers. Bed bugs are equally as comfortable in chairs, rugs, pillows, you name it—if it’s soft and comfortable there may be bed bugs living in it! Also be aware of the fact that bed bugs do not make mischief only during the evenings. In fact, anytime is the right time for a bed bug to take a tiny chomp out of you if it is possible to do so. Remember to get to a doctor’s office or walk in clinic if you see evidence of bed bugs in your abode.
Number One Bed Bug Myth
If I encase my mattress and pillow the bed bugs will not attack me.
FALSE! Wrapping your mattress and/or pillow in a special wrapping made to protect you against bed bugs is always a good idea because it makes the mattress and pillow impregnable to the housing of their disgusting little colonies. As previously stated, however, bed bugs do not reside in mattresses alone therefore they will always find a way to get on your bed during the night to do their dirty, painful business.
