Bed Bugs

 

So you think you may have bed bugs. Bed bugs are always looking for human hosts who have been inactive long enough to provide a meal. This is why, as the name suggests, you will find them in and around your bed. When bed bugs feed, they inject
the skin with their saliva (this keeps the blood from clotting) and an anesthetic (this keeps the host from feeling the bite and moving). Bed bugs do not spread disease, but their bites can become red and itchy welts. Bed bugs are the hitchhiker of the insect & mite world.You can bring an infestation back home with you from a hotel, the movie theater, an uber ride, and many other places. They are primarily transported by their human host and luggage. If you suspect you have a bed bug infestation it is important to not change your sleeping patterns because the bed bugs will just follow you to the new area and infest the new area. It is a misconception that bed bugs are caused by poor sanitation, bed bugs do not discriminate based on ones cleanliness of their home. Bed bugs will lay and hide their eggs virtually everywhere.
