Few people want to talk about it, but the bed bug population has been growing rapidly over the past few years in the United States.

Pinellas Park, FL, June 02, 2015 --( When M.G. West started waking up with painful, itching red welts on her legs; it took a while for her to figure out what was causing them. After several months of research and many talks with professionals, who thought the cause was anything from skin rash, food allergy, fleas, ticks, mosquitoes, etc., she found her answer. The welts were actually bites from bed bugs. Figuring out what was causing the bumps was just the first step of many in curing the problem. Getting rid of the pests was difficult and took more than eight months.

“Bed bugs can be prevented and eliminated without harsh chemicals and in a more natural way. You have to act quickly though to prevent an infestation,” says West. Like many people, she tried using chemicals, but didn’t have any success. It was when she was about to give up entirely on getting rid of the bugs that she found a more natural, less toxic solution that actually worked. Her book, which has just been released on Amazon, gives 3 steps that anyone can do to help eliminate and prevent bed bugs.

Bed bugs have been around for thousands of years. They travel on people and on their clothes and belongings. If someone has bed bugs at home, they might unknowingly spread them. Bed bugs are elusive, difficult to diagnose and challenging to eliminate. Even if a professional exterminator is hired it doesn’t necessarily mean that the problem will be removed. Bed bugs are not limited to unclean homes and it’s been said that it’s not if you get bed bugs, but when.
