Everything You Never Wanted to Know About Bedbugs - Real Estate Advice

Here’s what homeowners need to know to keep bedbugs out of their home, plus some gruesome tales of unlucky homeowners who had them.

 

Winter is a time to snuggle up at home—that is, unless said home is infested with the most dreaded and unwelcome houseguests this side of in-laws and former college roommates: bedbugs. The very word sends chills up and down our collective nervous systems. And these critters are on the rise in many parts of the U.S. and Canada.

Great article on how to identify that you have bedbugs, what they do to your home and how to get rid of them.

These critters were first identified in the 1970’s, and are apparently on the rise in North America.

What are signs my home has them?

According to the CDC, if you see any of the following, you may have a bedbug infestation:

  • Dark or rusty spots on sheets, mattresses, or your PJs (That’s their excrement, we’re sorry to say.)
  • Shed exoskeletons, or eggs, which look like very small grains of rice
  • An odor that’s similar to overripe raspberries
  • Unexplainable welts that you did not have before you went to bed

Bedbugs in condo buildings can be especially harmful.  If your neighbour has them, it is entirely possible that several of the neighbouring suites must be evacuated while the fumigation takes effect.
