As the Halloween season fades away, the creaky sounds coming from the deepest cracks and crevices of your floorboards won't. Your imagination runs wild wondering what creatures could be be lurking in your attic. You may get goosebumps just thinking that a bat, commonly viewed as a dangerous and predatory creature, could be setting up camp right above you head. But have you ever stopped to think that maybe what you should be fearing most is right under your nose, or your pillow to be exact? Bed bugs are today's real life version of Count Dracula.
Yeah, bats are not ideal, and maybe in your nightmares they transform into vampires and wreak havoc on society, but in reality, bats can be your friend. Bats consume many insects, including the harassing mosquito. They commonly eat up to half their body weight in mosquitos in one night. Due to their sensitivity to pollution and pesticide levels, they can also raise the alarm to possible environmental problems, so you should be grateful.
Though helpful in the environment, bats in the house can be harmful to your health, so it's important to get them out.
Now bed bugs - those are more of a threat. As their name suggests, these blood suckers make themselves at home in your bed. They feed on blood, biting and causing itchy marks on your skin to develop; a recipe for a restless night's sleep. Like a vampire in folklore, bed bugs stick to feeding at night, but otherwise keep to themselves in the seams of your mattress and box spring as well as the cracks in your headboard and bed frame. There is nothing good about these creatures, but luckily there are ways to get rid of bed bugs professionally.
Using a new, eco-friendly treatment called Rapid-Freeze, Catseye has found the best solution. Chilled at temperatures of over 100 degrees below zero, Catseye's Rapid Freeze uses Cryonite, a CO2 snow, to chill bed bugs dead in their tracks, leaving no residue behind.
So when you're out and about this holiday season with all the stories about vampires, ghouls and ghosts, maybe you should reconsider what you should fear the most; something might just be waiting for your return.
