Tiny vampire bugs creeping into your bed at night to suck your blood as you sleep — cue the spooky music! It may sound like a trailer for a horror movie, but this is the real-life nightmare people live when their home is invaded by bed bugs. Waking up in the middle of the night to find bed bugs crawling in your bed and your body dotted with bed bug bites induces panic and can make it impossible to get a good night’s sleep.
What Not To Do
The worst thing you can do is drag your mattress to the curb and start sleeping on a different bed or on the couch. Bed bugs are attracted to body heat and will track you down, spreading the infestation through your home. The smart way to cope with a bed bug invasion is to call an experienced bed bug exterminator to eliminate the problem.
Two products can help you get a decent night’s sleep until the last bed bug is exterminated:
- Bed Bug Moat and similar products slip under bed legs, trapping bed bugs before they can climb into your bed.
- Protect-A-Bed encasements completely enclose your mattress, box springs and bed pillows in bite-proof, escape-proof envelopes that trap bed bugs inside until they die.
