Bedbug signs are few and far between unless you are really looking for them. Unfortunately, most people aren’t even aware that their home has been taken over by bedbugs until the first bed bug bites begin to appear on a family member. Usually, by them your home is crawling with these little nocturnal horrors and fighting an infestation can be an uphill battle. Finding a safe and effective product that can kill those bedbugs isn’t easy which is why many people are asking if FabriClear really works? Before that question can be answered there are a few things that you need to understand about bedbugs themselves.
Bed Bug Lifecycle
An adult bed bug can live 10 months or longer. During that 10 month period they can have up to 500 offspring. These offspring go through 5 phases before they reach adulthood, and need to feed on blood in order to continue to growing. In addition, it is not unusual for up to 3 generations of bedbugs to all be living in your home during a one year period. This means that it is almost impossible to get rid of bedbug contamination with a single treatment no matter how effective that treatment may be.
Bed Bug Bites
Since bed bugs only come out and feed at night, it is impossible to know if you have bedbugs unless you experience bed bug symptoms which is usually a reaction to the bed bug bite itself. These symptoms include, bites that are normally in a line, called the breakfast, lunch, and dinner pattern, that appear on the face, arms, hands and neck. These bites are normally red with darker red centers and often itch.
Bed Bug Bites Vs. Hives
People often mistake bed bug bites for other insect bites and even for hives. Which is only natural since an allergic reaction to these bites can cause individuals to break out in hives. However, if you go to sleep bite and hive free and wake up in the morning covered with hives or what appears to be hives then you should suspect bed bugs and look for signs that may prove you right.
How to Find Bed Bugs in Your Home
If you have what appears to be a bed bug bite then the first thing you need to do is a search for signs that bedbugs are in your home. Start your search with your bed and bedding. Look for any small signs of blood or skeletal remains on your bedding. Tiny dots of blood from a crushed bedbug or a bed bug bite are difficult to see unless you are looking for them. You also need to exam your mattress, box springs and all the nooks and crannies of your bed for signs of skeletal remains or bed bugs eggs. If you see any signs at all, chances are that you have a much larger bed bug infestation than what you can see with the naked eye. You need to do something fast, and this may mean reaching for that bottle of Frabiclear.
Does Fabriclear work?
Which now brings back to the original question. Does Fabriclear work? It is hard to give a definitive answer to that question because the common treatment for bedbugs is a high heat treatment which while effective may not be affordable. Fabriclear is a bed bug spray that consists of safe ingredients that is said to kill bedbugs on contact and to help drive them away.
Many of the Fabriclear reviews are less than positive, but that may be due to the fact that spraying your bed and other fabrics with fabric clear may kill the bed bugs lingering there, but won’t do anything to those bed bugs that are hiding in tiny cracks and crevices in your walls, stands, and other furniture.
Since at least 50% of the users of fabriclear get positive results, we can only assume that this product works, but that you may need to use several applications to get all the bedbugs that are hiding or you may need to use it in conjunction with steam cleaning your walls. Wood furniture, and floors to eliminate those bedbugs that are hiding.
One thing is clear. Most people report an end to bed bug bites after using fabriclear on their beds, which is a clear indication that this spray does indeed kill bedbugs on bedding and other fabrics.
