Bed Bugs are one of the most stressful pests homeowners can encounter. They are like little vampires that feed on people in the middle of the night. They literally get their name “bed bug” because they live on our beds, mattresses, box springs,Facts About Bed Bugs or bed frames. If the bed bug population is large enough, they can move into dressers, behind picture frames, door frames, ceiling fans, books, bookshelves, closets, clothing, and many other areas.
They are tremendous hitch-hikers and can be carried back from hotels, motels, movie theaters, buses, and college dorms. They are notorious for being carried back to homes inside suitcases. Bed bugs can also be an issue for residents in nursing homes and assisted living properties when new residents bring contaminated items into the structure.
