Bed Bugs And Sleepless Nights: How They Affect Your Well-Being

Bed bugs take up to 20 minutes to feed and don’t like being disturbed, which is why they prefer to feed at night when their hosts are asleep. Bed bug bites can be painful and itchy and deprive you of sleep. Over time, this can have many negative health consequences. While bed bug bites can be painful and itchy, they can also cause intensive rashes in some individuals, leading to even more problems. Since bed bugs only worsen over time and can cause increasingly worse problems for you and your family, bed bug infestations are serious and must be addressed as soon as possible.
