Don’t be fooled… Bed bugs can live anywhere.
They’re found close to where they feed, in bed mattress crevices, box springs, baseboards, bed frames, and anywhere around your bed. Bed Bugs are also found in electric outlets, switches, behind pictures and frames, and even behind wallpaper! They can be found in hotels, motels, dormitories, apartments, condos, private homes, retail stores, movie theaters, businesses, and offices. Bed Bugs like to infest household appliances, alarm clocks, coffee makers, toasters, and anywhere with dark crevices for them to hide. Due to the fact that Bed Bugs live primarily in nooks and crannies, you may have them in your home for months before you ever spot one of them.
Bed bugs are orderly and precise.
Bed bugs have a predictable feeding pattern. Once a bed bug finds a host, it will usually feed for 5 to 10 minutes until repletion. They will feed on the blood of human beings and other animals such as dogs, cats, birds, gerbils, hamsters, guinea pigs, and mice. Human bites are often found in a pattern referred to as breakfast, lunch and dinner. The bite marks they leave behind are often in clusters or in a row on exposed skin on the chest, arms or legs. This is a true sign of a bed bug infestation. Bites can cause severe itching and allergic reactions. Bed bugs can also cause psychological distress and insomnia.
Bed bugs are smart.
They are fans of Twilight, staying out of view during the day. At nighttime, the carbon dioxide we exhale often tempts them out of their hiding spots . Bed bugs do most of their feeding at night. They will feed on humans while they sleep. They cause itchy, red bumps and are very hard to get rid of.
Bed bugs are social climbers and Well-Travelled.
An infestation can happen to anyone. They can have 10,000 babies in three months!
Bed bugs are hardy.
These pests can live up to 12 months without a blood meal. They will also linger in furniture, bags and suitcases for a long time until they are near a human host again. Bed bugs can survive temperatures of freezing to 122 degrees. Due to these facts, Bed bugs are not a pest that can be treated with DIY measures.
If you think you have a Bed Bug Infestation, it is not to be ignored. The most effective way to treat an infestation and to rid your home of these unwelcome visitors, successfully, is to contact a licensed Pest Professional Company who is trained on the “unique, often sneaky habits” of Bed Bugs.
