Fleas live on fresh blood like ticks but they are faster, tinier, harder to get rid of, and more harmful to your pet.

Bed Bugs

Work hard, travel harder! We all love to travel around and appreciate beautiful nature. Traveling is always a nice thing to do but sometimes we might bring some little creatures back to our house unknowingly such as bed bugs. Bed Bugs are small, oval, brownish insects that live on the blood of animals or humans. They tend to live in groups in hiding places. Their initial hiding places are typically in mattresses, box springs, bed frames, and headboards where they have easy access to people to bite when they sleep. Bed bugs are difficult to get rid of however you could try by laundry all your cloth, clean your mattress, and vacuum everywhere you can. 


Head Lice

These are super tiny parasitic insects that live on our heads. Lice are easily spread especially by children. When these tiny lice infect the scalp and skin, they trigger intense itching and may even create a rash around the hairline. You can get lice even if you are super clean and shower every day because these little creatures can live and hide on your mattress or pillow. The best way to get rid of hair lice is to clean your bed area every month and do a deep clean sometimes.



Sometimes we eat some food or snack in our bedroom and leave some leftover food and we just leave it there without cleaning. Ants are part of nature’s cleaning crew, They efficiently find and remove food left around the house. The problem is, sometimes we don’t want their help. Only one ant needs to find the food and lay a trail. Once that happens, hundreds of others can follow the trail to the food source so just one little piece of cookie you leftover, when you eat on your bed, can be a huge problem for your resting. When you try to kill an ant they will leave the intense smell to warn that you are their enemy and it will bring more of their friend to you, it’s better to keep your bed area clean so an army of ants won’t annoy you.


Silverfish are scary looking insects, they don’t harm humans but sometimes they eat our cloth or paper for a living.
