[separator top=”-55″ bottom=”10″ style=””]Missing sleep? Feeling itchy and irritated during the night, waking with bites? It is likely then that your room has some uninvited sleepover guests, that aren’t sleeping but are feeding on you. Pests that infest your bedroom are most busy at night, while you are sleeping; they are feeding off you.
Night-time feeds are the easiest for these pests as you are staying still and totally unaware. You are not swatting them away. They can live in your carpet, your bedding and your mattress. If you are experiencing any of the aforementioned issues then it might be time to get a professional pest controller in like someone from our team at Best 1 Cleaning and Pest Management.
In the meantime, let’s take a look at a couple of the pests that might be destroying your sleep and your skin.
First of all, you can get fleas in the home even if you don’t have pets. Fleas can be left behind by previous occupants who have not had an appropriate pest treatment carried out and who had pets. They can also occur because of neighbourhood cats and dogs lounging near your home or pests such as rodents can bring them in.
If you have a carpet in your bedroom then this is a safe haven for fleas; from here they can make their way into your bed and cause you all kinds of havoc. If you do have a pet then it’s a good idea not to let it sleep in your bedroom or bed.
Bed bugs are another common pest in the bedroom and often people can confuse a flea infestation with bed bugs and vice versa. Bed bugs carry a stigma of un-cleanliness but they can still infest your bedroom even if you do regularly wash your bed linen.
These nasty pests feed on you while you sleep and can cause rashes and allergy-type symptoms. Bed bugs can become a real problem if left untreated.
Dust mites are found all over the home but the bedroom in particular is a haven for them as they feed off dead skin cells. As we all well know, mattresses and bedding are loaded with our dead skin cells so your used mattress could be harbouring millions of them.
