Get Rid Of Bed Bugs With Bugged Out

By Keith Donaldson

Bed bugs are a menace. They will infest everything and make your life a nightmare. Luckily for the folks of Long Island there is Bugged Out to help rid you of that pest once and for all. President of the company, Suleny McGowan, took some time to answer our questions.

What are some health consequences of a bed bug infestation? How would a person know if he or she is contending with a bed bug problem?

Bed bugs pose very few health consequences and none relate to carrying any known diseases or viruses. Some health effects a bed bug infestation can impose are skin-rashes, psychological effects and allergic symptoms. Although bed bug bites usually do not leave permanent scarring, in some rare cases they may cause permanent marks or blisters.

There are four tell-tale signs that a person may have a bed bug issue: 1) Rusty or reddish stains that you may find on bed sheets or mattress, which is caused by crushing bed bugs in your sleep. 2) Pungent, dark black stains; which resembles pen ink, which you can find on your bedding linens or mattress itself. This marking is bed bug excrement and poses no health risk. 3) Bed bug eggs or skin. These two signs are VERY hard sight with an untrained eye. Their eggs are very tiny (1 mm in size), almost translucent in color and house all bed bug nymphs (babies). Bed bug skin is found when bed bug nymphs are shedding their exoskeleton and growing to larger nymph stages. Bed bug nymphs will molt out of their skin which is usually sand yellow in color. 4) Clearly, the most obvious signs of bed bugs are live bed bugs themselves. They are oval in shape, burgundy in color and have very distinct line that stretch entirely across their back in a diagonal direction.
