Waking Up With Bug Bites

waking up with bug bites

If you’re waking up with red, itchy welts, you may have a pesky pest predator in your midst. Let’s take a look at what bites in the night and help you find a solution to your pest problem.

As always, the Clegg’s Pest Control team is here to help you take back your home from the insects and arachnids that find their ways indoors. Call us or contact us online for more information about our services and schedule your free initial inspection today.

What Bugs Bite at Night?

You may think that bug bites sustained at night are from spiders, but that common misconception is likely untrue. The most common culprits that cause nighttime bites are bed bugs and fleas.

How Did I Get Bed Bugs?

Bed bugs can make their way into your home in a variety of ways. From hitching a ride on cardboard boxes to nestling in clothing and on suitcases, these hard-to-spot insects burrow into crevices and seams in your bed. They come out in the middle of the night while many people are still sleeping and bite their hosts, resulting in itchy red spots when you wake up.

Look for dark brown spots along the seams and in the corners of your mattress, and be sure to check other soft materials around your room for evidence of bed bugs. Because they are so difficult to spot and can quickly resurge if not completely eradicated, it’s important to have a professional treat your bed bug infestation.

How Did I Get Fleas?

Fleas can find their way into your home by hopping onto your pet’s fur. They are quick to reproduce and can often be seen jumping on furniture, carpets, or curtains. Because they burrow into bedding and floor cracks, they can be difficult to spot.

If you have fleas in your home, you’ll notice small, red bumps in clusters or lines, often around your feet and ankles, but bites are also commonly found on elbows, knees, and waist. Contact us today to discuss treatment options.
