  1. Their bite is like a mosquito only problem is they don’t just fly away, they multiply very quick and keep going…. its a long and expensive ordeal. You better call an exterminator asap if you have bites before they take over your house and spread to your neighbors too! I had them for a while and didn’t know what it was till we had the K9 come check…… Not a fun bug to get 🙁

  2. My son was te only one in our family who had bites. I went to the pediatrician 4 times not knowing what it was, they thought an allergiv reaction or scabies, never thinking bedbugs since no one else in my family had any bites. However i called down an exterminator and he found bed bugs only in his bed. So dont think if i=only one family member has bites that it cant be bed bugs, it could. I exterminated my house washed all linen in hot water and got rid of them thankfully. It was alot of hard work but manageable. If you think you have it plz call an exterminator. Remember it could be just in one childs bed,

  3. KEEP THE BEDS CLEAN AND CHANGE AND WASH YOUR SHEETS AND PILLOW COVERS ,CLEANS YOUR FLOORS AND ROOM AND U SHOULD NEVER EVER HAVE BED BUGS!!!!!!!!

    PROPER HYGIENE !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  4. CLEAN YOU BED SHEETS AND PILLOW CASES. CLEAN EVERYTHING IN YOUR BEDROOM AND THERE SHOULD BE NO PROBLEMS WITH BED BUGS.

    BED BUGS ARE A HYGIENE PROBLEM

  5. to # 5 Bed bugs are not a hygiene problem, just as lice is not a hygiene problem. Have a care for your friend or neighbor who might be suffering. There is no need to write in all caps, who are you shouting at?
