Updated on November 9, 2011

How can I get rid of bed bug bites ?

We have all had a bed bug bite at one stage of our lives, sometimes without even being aware that our beds have bugs in them.

A bed bug bite will typically appear overnight as an irritation to the skin and will leave a tiny little red welt where the bed bug bite has occurred.

Bed bugs can survive on the dead skin and hair folicles that our bodies leave behind while we sleep. When we move in our sleep, our bodies create a friction with the sheets and matresses on which we sleep. This friction will cause the bed bugs to seek the warmth that it provides.

      Bed Bugs are pretty resilient and extremely difficult to eradicate. Even if you kill all the big ones, the eggs that remain, can hatch over a period of time and then get back at you.. Especially on wooden furniture.. periodic spraying and elimination are your only options.
