What Really Are Bed Bugs?

Bed bugs can easily become your worst nightmare come true! They are bloodsuckers who love to travel! They feed on the blood of people and animals at night while they are sleeping. They can invade by hitchhiking on items such as luggage, clothing, bedding, used furniture and even shoes.

Bed bug bites usually occur around or near where people sleep and have been reported in all 50 states. Bed bugs are not known to transmit or spread diseases, but adverse health effects may result from their bites. These can include skin rashes and allergic symptoms. Secondary infections can include impetigo, eczema, and lymphangitis.

Bed bugs don’t discriminate between a clean or a dirty environment. They are incredibly difficult to control because they are so good at hiding in the tiniest cracks and crevices. They have become highly resistant to the pesticides used for their control, and Do-It-Yourself pest control practices have actually added to furthering the rapid spread of these nasty pests.
