When you sleep at night, suddenly you see that bed bugs attack you silently. The truth is that they suck your blood slowly and this is not fiction.
In that situation, you get bored and you want to kill all these pests instantly. But when you wake up from bed and move your body to find those pests, you don’t see all of them together.
They quickly start to hide in the small gap in your living area and that is also their behavior. It will be better if you use bed bug detection devices, pest destructs, ultrasonic pest repeller sounds, or pest control devices.
Now, you want to kill them all. But in the daytime or sunlight, you don’t find all of them for their quick deception of hiding. They also get the advantage from their short form or shape.
Also, you don’t hear bed bugs’ sounds so that you can detect their location. You may have a question in your mind: can you hear or see the bed bugs in pillows?
You may have a question: Do the bed bugs and fleas make clicking or buzzing noises during the day and night time?
I think you have reached the right blog site for getting the answer to that question. I have also shared with you the reliable bed bug killer plug-ins for the destruction of all harmful insects.
So you should continue reading…
Do the Bed Bugs/Fleas Make a Buzzing Sound (Noise)?
These pests are like the order of Hemiptera and cicadas are the same one. These creatures can’t make any sound that we hear.
Most of the time, they like to live in a silent and dark area because of their safety. Adult male and female bed bugs can live on average six to twelve months.
Normally that is a much longer time and it is the bug’s life cycle. They also emit pheromones to prevent the attack of other insects like bark beetles, carpet beetles, etc.
At night time, when the environment of this planet becomes a dark and silent mode, then these adult bed bugs come out to attack our body, abdomen, ears, and hands.
This type of pest bites on the scalp, kids, babies, and all over the human body. Some pests (flies, mosquitoes, etc) can make sound but this type of pests don’t create the sound as other pests can.
There are some differences between bugs and fleas. Normally adult fleas are seen 1.5 – 3.3 mm in length. They may live between 2 months to 3 months (flea life cycle). On the other hand, bed bugs are seen 1.5 – 5 mm in length.
It seems that almost the level of their height is the same size as the apple seeds. Male and female fleas look like bed bugs but they have some differences.
Hot seasons are the best weather for fleas. On the other side, common chinch bug bites are seen in the hot and winter season too. One kind of disease (plague – Yersinia pestis) may happen for fleas.
The legs of fleas are not weak and they live in their host and they can’t also make a sound. This type of pest does serious harm to pets.
N.B: If your area is not soundproof, you can try the below techniques:
Can the Bed Bugs Hear All Types of Sounds?
These types of bugs, dog fleas, and cat fleas can hear sound but they don’t like specific sound waves. In our modern technology, many companies are making bed bug killer devices by using specific waves.
What Attracts the Bed Bugs to Human Beings
This type of pest likes to live in a gap and corner where there is no movement for a long time. Some things may attract these pests (parasites) to humans. They are given below:
When you sleep in the bed for a long time, muscle smell is spread around the living place. If this type of smell goes to these pests, they start finding the source of fresh blood after getting enough chemical signals.
They can easily contact each other because they also have enough communication and understanding capacity. A bug bites while sleeping and you should be alert about it.
The smell of human blood, body heat, and vibration of the body also attract these pests. When these pests live near the small gaps like the sofa, bed, etc, they can smell the warm blood.
Remember: These insects don’t live on the skin of pets, animals, and rodents. So these places are not suitable as habitats for them. But fleas and lice can live in animals like dogs, cats, guinea pigs, etc. Animals can carry these pests, fleas, and other pests. In Particular, wild animals like raccoons, and bats carry most of the pests. Rodents may spread some diseases (hantavirus, salmonella, etc) and you should focus on this issue for disease control. Bat bugs may bring harmful diseases to the human body.
3. Dirty Cloth and Other Things
If your living room is dirty for a long time and you regularly keep dirty clothes including collars, food packages, sheets, home appliances, materials, bags, shoes and buckets in your bedroom, then that place will be suitable for this type of bug.
Note: In my living place, I faced this problem and I have applied some techniques for solving this problem.
Besides, the dirty condition may increase the rodent infestation. In that case, you may use rodent repellent. You may also use cockroach (insect) repellent sounds if necessary.
4. Carbon Dioxide
At night time, humans exhale a maximum amount of carbon dioxide that spreads near the area of the bedside. This carbon dioxide easily goes to these pests that live near you. As a result, this pest is ready to suck human blood instantly.
5. Human Hormones
These pests can smell the human hormones from the dirty cloth and bed cover. As a result, this pest can confirm the location of human beings.
6. Warm Cloth
These pests also like warm places like warm cloth etc. When you sleep for a long time, the sleeping cover gets warm. So these types of pests may come to these warm clothes and bite you.
N.B: Dead squirrels may be a reason for attracting dangerous pests.
What Can You Put on Your Body to Prevent Tiny Bed Bug Bites?
The respiratory systems of your body may be weak to bug bites and it gives agony. If you find scratches (spots of scratching) on your body and don’t care about the excessive attack of these bugs, decomposition may happen in your skin and it may hamper your nervous system (rare case).
Bedbug epidemics may be created, If most people ignore this pest production. At that time dermatitis may be created in the cases of coeliac disease.
These infectious diseases may create complications for the human body. In that situation, that victim might be at high risk.
You need a diagnosis, flea treatments, bed bug treatments, and health tips by using some essential things (deterrents) on your body skin if you want to prevent pest bites.
Some examples are: Pest or bug repellent for skin, specific oil, Vicks VapoRub and white vinegar. You need to think about your family and children so that they also have awareness of these pests.
1. Insect Repellent for Body Skin
After sucking blood from your body, irritants may insert into your muscle. As a result, itching or itchy welts may happen as the allergic reactions to small bug bites on that location.
For this reason, you may blow your nose loudly. If you want to do this quietly, you may read this article: how to blow nose quietly.
So you should avoid these pests and flea allergies for keeping your body healthy. You can find some specific bed bug repellents from the market and you can use them on your skin before going to your rest time or sleep.
After using these types of repellent products on the skin, it will create an extra skin layer. Besides, the efficacy of this type of pest repellent is not bad.
After using this repellent, black and red bed bugs or other household pests can’t attack that body skin.
N.B: Some companies may scam you and other consumers by collecting their repellents and you should be alert about that. So FTC take action against these companies. (source)
2. Specific Oil
There are available essential oils that bugs don’t like. Such as lavender, tea tree, eucalyptus, peppermint essential oil, etc.
This type of oil has essential and insecticidal elements and this is why pests want to avoid it. Besides, you may use coconut oil which includes bug repellent properties. (source)
3. Vicks VapoRub
You may use Vicks VapoRub in your body. Not only is it required for colds or coughs but it is also useful to use on the skin for avoiding bug bites.
4. White Vinegar
Bugs and other unwanted pests don’t like white vinegar. Because it includes acetic acid which is harmful to pests.
So you can use cotton with vinegar and rub it on the body area where pests may bite. Besides, you may spray vinegar on the picnic tables, and home area and this is also useful for removing these pests.
You may use soapy water but it will not be better than white vinegar. Homeowners should be alert to keep their rooms neat and clean so that any kind of pest can’t attack.
Besides, you should know home remedies for recovering your affected skin.

If you don’t take it seriously, the cockroaches, fleas, and bed bug infestation (nuisance) may grow quickly. The bay area is at high risk for fast-growing pests.
To increase the human harbourages, this pest infestation is also increasing day by day. As a result, you are seriously affected by huge amounts (numbers) of blood-sucking bed bugs.
This growth faces resistance if you use some specific deterrents.

If you see flea dirt, bug feces, or bug droppings in the bed cover or the furniture, you should find the location of live bugs. If you ignore this, you may face a serious bed bug or flea problem.
5. Irregular Insect Bites
When you sleep at night, sometimes, you feel that any kind of pest bites a little bit and it may look like chickenpox. These bugs may turn your night into a nightmare.

You should inspect the availability of pests, especially bugs, and take necessary action seriously.
6. Blood Signs of Pest
These types of pests are opportunists and immediately they suck blood when they contact the human body.

Because, if that sign is for bugs, then you should think, it is the early sign of growing this type of insect.

At that time you should find the other bugs and their living place and take an instant step. I think you have learned some important notes after reading these notes.
