Have you heard the nursery rhyme: Goodnight. Sleep tight. Don’t let the bed bugs bite? Chances are you have. The funny thing is most people who heard this rhyme as a child didn't have the slightest clue what a bed bug was. Did you? Even as you are reading this, are you still curious about the bugs that had their very own nursery rhyme made for them? If so, stick around. Today we will be breaking down what bed bugs actually are and figuring out how much of a problem they are here in Roanoke.

Can Bed Bugs Be Treated Without Professional Help?

Bed bugs may be the hardest pests to treat without professional help. This is because of how they invade homes, and how they evade treatments. You cannot seal up the exterior of your home to keep bed bugs out, because you are the one who brings them inside, you or another human being. Bed bugs are hitchhiking pests that use items we carry to get into our homes. Bed bugs are also very good at hiding from home remedies.

In addition, many store-bought pest controls contain chemicals which can be dangerous to you and your family. Furthermore, if you read that heat kills bed bugs and think you can crank your heating unit high enough, we assure you, it won't work. Bed bugs won't be completely eradicated until your entire home is above 117 degrees.

How To Know If You Have Bed Bugs

Are you finding spots of blood on your sheets that weren’t there when you went to bed? Have you noticed tiny black specs in the crevices in and around your bed? Are you seeing live oval-shaped reddish-brown bugs (bed bugs) crawling around in your bed? If you answered yes to any of these questions, there is a chance you are dealing with bed bugs.
