Common Bedroom Pests and How to Get Rid Of Them

We are all used to constantly being pestered by insects around the yard. Insects such as ants, bees and other types of bugs are always roaming around in the garden and infestations can get out of hand quite easily. The one place you usually don’t expect insects is in the bedroom. This is also one of the areas where insects are the absolute worst because these bugs can cause so much discomfort or health problems.

If you are suddenly faced with unusual bite marks, skin rashes or strange droppings inside your bedroom then you likely have a pest infestation. Here are some of the most common bedroom pests followed by the best way to get rid of these insects.

Fleas

Fleas are common pests on pets like cats and dogs but did you know that they can also infest your bedroom? These insects are carried all over your house by your house pets and will also bite you. The bite of a flea looks a lot like a mosquito bite but itches more intensely.

To get rid of fleas you need to first treat your pests. Once your pets are treated, you can hire a pest control company to fumigate your home in order to get the infestation under control.

Bed Bugs

Bed bugs are the most common bedroom-specific pest. These tiny insects are found all over the world and inside all types of buildings. They are hard to see because they are so tiny and tend to hide away during the day. Bed bugs usually attack during the night and feed on blood and dead skin. Bed bugs cause quite a lot of discomfort since their bites result in skin irritations and itching.

To get rid of these bugs you need to remove all linen, wash in warm water and get your entire room fumigated. Fumes need to be absorbed by the mattress in order to exterminate lingering bugs that hide away inside your mattress.

Ants

If an ant colony settles outside your bedroom you can easily start to struggle with these types of insects inside your bedroom. While ants aren’t really harmful to your health, they can be quite annoying, especially if you love to enjoy a midnight snack while relaxing in bed. You will wake up to a room filled with tiny ants.

The only way to get rid of ants is to get your home and yard treated with an ant killer. Ask a reliable pest control company about the best treatments for these annoying insects.

Mosquitoes

There is nothing more annoying than trying to sleep with the annoying zoom of a mosquito hanging about your bed. Mosquitos are annoying outside but they are a lot worse when they get into your bedroom and wait for you to fall asleep so they can have a bite to eat. Mosquitos are easily killed by treating your home and yard with a good quality pest control product.

Flies

Flies are most commonly found inside the kitchen but there is nothing that keeps these annoying bugs from bugging you inside the bedroom when you are dealing with a nasty fly breakout. To get rid of flies, try putting out fly poison and hang flycatchers outside the house. The smell will keep flies from targeting your home and these catchers will kill these insects at the same time.

Lice

Head lice are a big problem that all parents constantly struggle with. These bugs are grey or transparent in colour which makes them so hard to spot. They lay nits in your hair, make your hair look all greasy and they can be very itchy. It is hard to get rid of head lice because nits can hatch days after you applied head treatments and these bugs can also hide away in your linen and carpets.

To get rid of lice, everyone in the family needs to be treated with the right shampoo. You also need to wash all linen in hot water and getting pest control at home can help a lot for preventing these types of infestations.
