Bed Bug

Pest Facts

  

Bed bugs are elusive, nocturnal creatures and come out at night to feed exclusively on blood. Bed bugs are very resilient and may live up to 12 months without a blood meal. Bed bugs are not caused by poor sanitation.

Bed bugs are not limited to the bed or the bedroom but instead will disperse throughout a dwelling. They will crawl considerable distances to obtain a blood meal.

Bed bugs like to hide in small cracks and crevices close to where humans rest & sleep. They can be found behind baseboards, upholstery, and in furniture crevices. Other places to check are wall hangings such as picture frames, night stands, stuffed furniture, floorboard cracks, behind loose wallpaper, light switches, door and window frames, conduits, etc.

Not everyone reacts to bed bug bites and some have delayed reactions to the bite. Bite symptoms often appear in rows of several or more bites. Bed bugs have not been demonstrated to be effective transmitters of disease. Bed bug bite symptoms typically appear as red, itchy welts but can vary from one individual to the next. In heavy infestations, bed bugs may be found in wall voids, attics and other enclosed places. Bed bugs can be introduced into a structure via used furniture or in the belongings of someone who has been living in a bed bug infested situation. Bed bugs like to travel and will hide in suitcases, boxes and shoes to be near a food supply.
