When my son showed me his arms a few weeks ago, I was puzzled as to what was on them. He had a straight line of tiny red bumps on each arm. It almost looked like bite marks, but I didn’t know of any insect that left a bite pattern like that. I went online to see if I could find out what was happening with him, and I quickly found out that they were bed bug bites. My very next search was for a company that does bed bug removal in NYC.
I looked at Standard Pest first because they have an extensive section on bed bugs. I have heard of these tiny creatures before, but I couldn’t have told anyone a single fact about them. It was almost as if they were a mythical insect or something, but I found out that they are very real. I was able to get a lot of information from this website, which had me looking for other signs of infestation. After looking closely at my son’s bed linens, I was able to see the dark spots I had been alerted to, which are just their waste material.
That is enough to gross anyone out! I was going to launder his linens, but he asked me to please just throw them away. He had outgrown the superhero theme anyway, so I did that. I bought him new linens after the pest control company came out and treated his bedroom as well as the other rooms of the house. It did not take them very long at all, and they assured me that the bed bugs would soon be a thing of the past. They did come out again to retreat everywhere, and we have not had any sightings or bites since then. I hope that I never have to deal with bed bugs again!
