Nothing comes close to the frustrations of having pests invade your home, and then they turn your body to be a place of feasting. That is exactly what the tiny bloodsuckers known as bed bugs do when they manage to find a way into your home in Arizona. For any homeowner who has had an experience with these uninvited guests, there is no explaining why they easily rank among the worst kind of pests. Bedbugs transform what should be peaceful nights where a family gets to relax to be long and uncomfortable hours that are unbearable because of their bites.
Where do bedbugs come from?
Studies show that bedbugs have been around for centuries and are probably as old as man. These pests easily get to most homes as they are the most devious hitchhikers and all it takes is for them to find a host. The worst part is these bloodsucking insects do not limit themselves to who can be a victim as every person is a good source of food. Typically, most people get to fall victims when they are in bed bug hot spots such as public parks, movie theatres, thrift stores, hospitals, and public transport especially subways. Once they get to your clothes or suitcases, it is always a free ride home and given how fast they reproduce it is only a matter of time before the bites become unbearable.
Is there a way to keep bedbugs away from home?

This is never easy to maintain as most of the times there is never a red signal indicating the presence of these pests. However, if you want to stay on the safe side after visiting a high-risk area the simplest solution for avoiding bed bugs is to always out your clothes and beddings in the dryer at high heat. This should be done immediately you get back home before they find time to get off as instantly discovering them is near impossible.
