The cleanliness of your body and sheets can eliminate the critters. Changing the sheets can regular can reduce the critters. An experiment was conducted in linminating the critters and it worked. An experiment in a bedroom was conducted. The experiment included removing the bedsheets, lift up the bed mattress, and box spring to lay on it’s sides, protect other vital aras in the room, and set off bedbug can sprays. While following the fog sprays instructions concerning pets and etc. When the fogger was finished, and the room air cleared, the bugd were gone.
It doesn’t matter what lifestyle you have, the bedbug can come to the home. It doesn’t matter if you have a tile floor or carpet, the bedbug finds a home. Bedbugs have also no restrictions just on beds, they can live in the couch.
The bite of the bedbug are irritating. When the bedbug feeds you’ll notice the cluster of the suck bumps on your skin. They crawl into openings of your clothing. The bumps can easily be mistaken as mosquito bites, except the the skin reaction. The bedbug bump appears to be red. The skin reacts to the saliva of the bedbug by sending blood to the location. The bump itches, then a yellow pus covers the top of the bump after a couple days. One bump can irritate and feel itchy to the skin for a week or more without being treated.

The hair-lice/crabs are blood suckers. These lice are known to live in cluster of white looking bubbles near th hair follicle. The white bubbles are actually eggs. The lice can be transmitted through sex, wearing an lice infected persons clothing, sleeping in an lice infected bed or couch, using a lice infected person’s comb. You can catch lice/crabs because of lice infected hair on the head or pubic infested genital hair. Transmitting or communing with the louse isn’t an STD.
Having lice doesn’t mean you have an STD from your partner, it just means you got “crabs” from your partner. Having crabs isn’t a disease. Having hair lice/crabs can cause skin itch sores. The sores can cause skin the irritated skin to look lik a scale. The scales look like constant dead skin falling off the skin. If you scratch the scale, you’ll make the irritation worst.
