With the news being flooded about the rise of bed bugs in cities across the United States most Americans are still â€śwondering what do bed bug bites look like?â€ť and â€śhow can they be treated?â€ť. Bed bugs are becoming more common in the United States, and bed bug infestations have been escalating since about 1995.
Somehow bed bugs were apparently common until the 1940s, when synthetic pesticides like DDT were introduced. Common theories as to their resurgence suggest that the cause is a lack of natural predators and species-wide resistance to several classes of pesticides.
Bed bugs are subtle nocturnal feeders that hide in bedding, mattresses/box springs, and furniture. They puncture the skin of their victims and feed on their blood. Such as mosquitoes and lice, their saliva contains proteins that anticoagulate blood and cause local allergic reactions. The bites themselves resemble small red spider bites that itch.
These annoying little critters may bite under loose fitting clothing. They leave behind bites may also occasionally flare up and resemble the lesions of an allergic reaction. Bed bugs do not spread human disease. Hep-B, hep-C, and HIV have all been looked at for transmission by bed bugs, no real evidence has been found for transmission.

Bed bug bites are usually last from 3 to 10 days, but if they are irritated and the skin is scratched it may result in scarring. Best to use are topical antihistamines, oral antihistamines also work but they take longer to work.
Best advice is not to attempt to fix a bed bug infestation in your homes by yourselves. If you think you may have an infestation of bed bugs, you should contact a pest control specialist. This is not a type of pest that can be treated and controlled with do-it-yourself measures. Over the counter pesticides are not effective on bed bugs. The pesticides that do work are too strong for an untrained person to use on their own as it may be misused and may harm them or their environment.
