How Bed Bugs Arrive
These sneaky creatures can arrive with your guests, whether in their luggage or on their clothes. Returning from vacation or a business trip? You may be bringing bed bugs with you. Or, if you like to go thrift shopping or visit rummage sales, these bugs can ride in on secondhand goods. This can include furniture, mattresses, clothing, and so forth.
Here’s something else to watch out for. If you return from a trip and put towels, for example, back in a closet, any bed bugs in them can continue to lay eggs and breed. So, when you come back home, wash towels, linens, clothing and so forth in hot water, and inspect your luggage carefully. Also wash your pet’s bedding and any clothing they wear.
Signs of Bed Bugs
These critters know how to hide, so you may not see them. If, though, you’re finding tiny bites on skin that comes into contact with your mattress or bed linens, that could be a sign. Typically, these bites are found on arms, legs, and backs. Or, you may see spots on your sheets, either brown or red. If so, this could be dried blood drops from bed bug bites.
Or, there may be a musty smell you can’t identify. If so, the odor may be coming from bed bugs. And, in some instances, you may see them on the underside of your mattress or huddled in cracks and crevices in your Port St. Lucie home, including in baseboards, furniture joints, and bed frames. They’re reddish brown in color, with flat bodies that are oval shaped. Figure the size of an apple seed, perhaps bloated if they’ve just fed.

Problems with DIY Treatments
It can be extremely challenging to rid your home of bed bugs by DIY-ing. Reasons include:
- They hide in difficult places to treat.
- They’re tiny, so it’s not easy to know how successful you’re being.
- They can survive at a range of life stages; a treatment that might work at one wouldn’t necessarily work at another.
Plus, bed bug DIY treatments can even boost the population of these pests in your home and can pose health problems for you and your family. For example, a paper by the University of Florida’s Institute of Food and Agricultural Sciences warns people against using foggers or off-label pesticides, creating your own treatment mixture, or using heat as a DIY method.
