Beware of Bedbugs

Bedbug bites occur in clusters, mostly on the face, neck, arms and hands. The bites may not make themselves known for several days. They itch and can form small blisters, but not everyone reacts to the bites. That's why some family members itch and others don't. Sometimes, there can be blood spots left on the sheets in the morning.
Bedbugs don't like light, so they hide during the day, living in the bedding or mattress, and come out at night. If you have an infestation, use a professional exterminator so you don't risk toxic exposure to insecticides, and so that all nooks and crannies are covered.

Now, at least you know what kind of bite a bedbug does. It can help you distinguish this from actual skin allergies. if you have kids, the more you should be checking your bed for possible bedbug colony. And..always check your baby's body for any possible bedbug bites.
