Itching is a common problem that is being experienced by various individuals. It can be highly uncomfortable and embarrassing at times. But for some individuals, bed bugs are the frustrating insects at home that cause itchiness.

How Do You Know You Have Bed Bugs

Bed Bugs How Do You Know?

One of the best methods to determine if you have bed bugs at home is by IPM or Integrated Pest Management. IPM combines different products and techniques posing the least risks to the environment and to human health. This will help you easily determine bed bug bites and bed bug eggs. You can search for bed bug pictures to be able to determine this insect right away.

You can consult your professional Pest Control operator or local health department to confirm that you really have these insects. The next thing to do is to inspect your bed frame or mattress especially the folds, underside and crevices where bed bugs usually hide.


Bed Bug Bite Symptoms

The very basic sign in bed bug symptoms is the appearance of small bumps on feet, face, neck and hands. At first, the bumps do not inflict itch or pain at all. They are quite hard to distinguish at the first stage. However, the best sign can be the linear patterns of 3 bumps in a single row.

After several days, there will be presence of red welts on your skin in the place where the small bumps appeared. This time, it will be usual to feel itching and/or burning sensation. But people vary when it comes to the intensity of itch and pain. Bed bug symptoms may not be determined right away but must be inspected carefully to become aware that there is the presence of bed bugs in your place.

Bed Bug Bites vs. Mosquito Bites

Bed Bugs bites Vs Mosquitos Bites

Many people tend to get confused between a bed bug bite and a mosquito bite. Mosquito bites are singularly located or typically isolated. The welts always itch but do not stay for one hour or two. These bites are harmless (unless they carry certain diseases) and marks easily vanish after itching disappeared.

On the other hand, bed bug bites usually cause small bumps raised while the mosquito bites look smaller and flatter pimple. Bed bug symptoms commonly do not show up for several days after getting exposed. Most of the time, the bites come in vertical lines of three. The welts itch or may not itch, but the ones that itch may itch intensely.

    Wow, that is some of the best info I have seen about bed bugs – particularly the fact that they leave bumps in rows of three — why in the heck do they do that? Is it that they travel in packs of three, or is it one single bug that bites three times? Anyway, I’m sure gonna be checking my bed before I jump in it tonight!

    • Peter May 13, 2013, 11:17 pm

    I see that the product contains peppermint oil, soybean oil and geraniol – are these just the main active ingredients, or are there a lot of other added ingredients. Just wondering, for those who suffer from allergies. I’d like to give this a try – not because I have bed bugs, but because I don’t want to ever get them.

  • Jere Magah May 9, 2013, 7:48 pm

    Hey, I was interested in the same thing – preventing getting bed bugs. I have a lot of visitors from other parts of the country, who stay here when they are working in town, and I worry about them bringing in bedbugs from hotels or other places they’ve been. I sprayed Fabriclear a few months ago, and have never had a problem. I don’t know if I ever would have in the first place, but didn’t want to take any chances. BTW, my kid has allergies and didn’t react at all.

  • Karen May 9, 2013, 10:46 pm

    Does fabriclear help you to get rid of bed bugs ? I love the idea of being 100% natural so I can use it everywhere with no risk. but does it really do the job ?

    • Peter May 13, 2013, 11:11 pm

      Hi Karen,
      As people mention above you have to do the complete treatment as it’s mention in FabriClear instructions so you get rid of bed bugs for good.If you don’t follow the instructions you may not achieve the results that are announced and you don’t stop the infestation.

  • Sandra May 9, 2013, 10:47 pm

  • Terri Thomas May 10, 2013, 12:13 am

    The three-in-a-row things is strange! I guess that makes it easy to identify though. I would never have known that. Thanks for info.

  • Sis McClintock May 10, 2013, 3:06 am

    I got these! And yes, the itching is very intense. I didn’t know about this product, but I wish I did back then. It took me a really long time to get rid of the bed bugs, and I have a few small scars. I’ve been searching online for a natural remedy, since I have a new baby at home now. Thanks for this, I’ll order some soon.

  • Angie M May 10, 2013, 3:34 am

    They didn’t itch when I had them. I tried this and it seemed to be working. But when I added a heat treatment to it, that really made it kick in. I would recommend both.

  • Ted Mackie May 10, 2013, 8:44 pm

    I own a string of sports clothing stores in Michigan, and I’ve actually had some clients come in saying that bed bugs hitched a ride in their gym bags when they worked out at hotel gyms. Not really sure how the bed bugs got in the gyms, or maybe it was just a coincidence? Maybe they were just in the hotel room. But it’s something to consider. Like maybe taking along the travel sized bottle to the gym.

  • katrina d May 10, 2013, 10:02 pm

    Peppermint oil is also used to naturally treat cold sores. It is claimed to kill the virus that causes them. I guess it makes sense to use it for killing bed bugs as well. Or at least to prevent them from laying their eggs anyway.

  • Claire June 14, 2013, 10:18 am

    I am very pleased with the information on your site. It covers everything and i have learned a lot about these nasty little creatures. The best thing about fabriclear is that its natural and no pungent chemical smell. I shall definitely stick with this thank you

    • Donna Lewis June 30, 2013, 7:19 pm

      Thanks Donna i am glad that you are happy with it. Yes it contains 100% natural ingredients

      Kind regards

  • tomasina June 15, 2013, 11:28 am

    My comment is not on here? I asked a question about whether or not it can be shipped to the uk

  • tomasina June 15, 2013, 11:29 am

    That ones gone in, sorry i don’t know what happened before.

  • Alex kent June 16, 2013, 11:50 am

    How long on average does it take to get rid of the skin tag? and can you use them on several skin tags at once

  • Alex kent June 16, 2013, 11:59 am

    Lol that sounded silly what i meant to say was how long does it take to get rid of bugs and if skin is affected by rash is it still safe to use. My boys covered in itchy bites with a white spots which look like little skin tags

  • Denise elliott June 17, 2013, 11:01 am

    all natural? sounded a bit too good to be true to me, but my sister swears by it so i am going to have a go with it in my apartment and see what happens

    • Peter June 17, 2013, 11:38 am

      Hi Denise. You can see in this review all the FabriClear Ingredients .

      • Denise elliott June 21, 2013, 8:38 am

        Thanks peter, i have looked at this and i will give it a try

  • leanne james June 18, 2013, 6:46 pm

    This is the first product that i have bought that really does exactly what it says it does. The instructions are clear, easy to follow and i got lots of help and advice from the customer support team when i bombarded them with questions! My husband says when i talk to people they need to have the patience of a saint. But I don’t think i really needed to pester the support lady as i found most of the answers here!

    • Donna Lewis June 30, 2013, 7:28 pm

      Haha Leanne, I am so glad that you had a positive customer service experience. its great that your happy with our product and thanks for the glowing feedback

      warm wishes

      Donna Lewis

  • Jack lempicki June 18, 2013, 6:53 pm

    Like this- it doesn’t leave the place stinking and as a student, i love the price thanks

  • Joanna oldman June 21, 2013, 8:43 am

    I bought this to use on my new rented apartment as a precautionary measure. I have a little dog, Trixie, shes my baby and loves to sleep curled up in bed with me. i am worried about how this may affect her, but it says its all natural ingredients?

    • Peter June 21, 2013, 4:32 pm

      Hi Joanna. Yes that’s right FabriClear Ingredients are all natural, you can find this information in this article

  • Georgina Burns June 24, 2013, 3:06 pm

    Thanks this is a brilliant product! I have been searching for ages to find something that does not have that terrible chemical smell.

  • susanne June 25, 2013, 8:09 am

    the most amazing thing about this is that not only does it free your home of bugs, you can use it as a precautionary measure against the little pesties!

    • Donna Lewis June 25, 2013, 12:07 pm

      Yes you can, Susanne and it is one of the most common reasons why our customer reviewers have purchased it. You may be interested in reading about that here

  • jeannie June 28, 2013, 9:10 am

    I love this it works really well and best of all i can use it even on my dogs bed. My adorable baby Jack, a Cavalier king Charles spaniel is very picky. If I change my laundry powder he notices and refuses to lay down! So he sleeps with his mom and i wanted to be sure that if i need to use something that he would not refuse due to smells. And i chose this as its all natural and he hasn’t noticed! Theres no rotten smell from this and it works! I am so happy with it

    • Donna Lewis June 28, 2013, 12:13 pm

      Haha Jeannie! our pets can be very peculiar at times.Thanks for the feedback

      kindest regards
