Get To Know Your #1 Enemy: Bed Bugs!
Few people know about the bed bug epidemic currently sweeping the United States. Bed bugs are tiny, parasitic insects that feed on human blood. They are most commonly found in hotels and other places where people sleep, but they can also be found in homes, schools, and offices.
The good news is that they are relatively easy to eliminate if you catch them early. The bad news is that they are difficult to detect, and many people don’t even realize they have an issue until it’s too late and they need a home pest control service. Please keep reading to learn more about bed bugs, including how to get rid of them.
Sleeping With The Enemy
Here are some of the most damaging pests to watch out for:
Bed Bugs? What Are They?
Bed bugs are small annoying, wingless insects that feed on your human blood. They are reddish-brown in color and range from 4 to 7 millimeters in length, depending on their age. Bed bugs have a flattened body shape, which allows them to hide in tight spaces.
Do Bedbugs Transmit Diseases?
Bed bugs do not transmit diseases, but their bites can be uncomfortable. Some people may experience allergic reactions to bed bug bites, ranging from mild to severe.
Bed Bugs Behaviors & Habits
Bed bugs feed on any warm-blooded mammal, but they prefer to bite humans. They tend to be more active at night but can bite during the day if hungry. Bed bugs feed for 5 to 10 minutes before retreating to their hiding place.
How do Bed Bugs Spread?
Bed bugs can spread through direct contact with infested bedding or furniture, but they can also be transported via luggage, clothing, or used furniture. These bugs can also hitch a ride on humans or animals and be transported to new locations.
Who Is At Risk Of Having Bed Bugs?
Anyone can get bed bugs, but they are more likely to bite people sleeping in a place where other people have them, thus, why bed bugs are more common in hotels and other places where people sleep.
