Bed bugs, fleas and ants are three of the most common biting insects that infest homes and cause misery for humans, their pets and their homes. Once you recognize an infestation, it’s important to get help quickly to minimize your damages.
Bed bugs are flat, brown insects that feed exclusively on blood. These nocturnal insects often enter the home when household members travel and inadvertently bring live specimens home in their luggage. Signs of bed bugs include unexplained skin lesions and the presence of eggs or dark fecal matter on sheets or upholstery. Bed bugs can cause painful rashes, itching and potentially serious allergic reactions.
Ants come indoors in search of food or water, and because they often arrive in droves, they’re a significant nuisance. Besides contaminating food stores, ants can bite and sting humans. Moist or decaying areas of a home are especially vulnerable to ants. Some varieties, such as carpenter ants, can cause serious structural damage.
Fleas are tiny, wingless insects that infest the fur of animals as well as upholstery, carpeting and bedding. Fleas commonly spread disease and parasites to pets, but they also bite humans. Historically, fleas have been responsible for the spread of diseases such as typhus, plague and cat-scratch fever. Flea infestations are often difficult to eradicate.
