Bed Bugs can be a real problem when found in your home or business. Recently, they have re-emerged mainly due to changes in treatments for more common pests and more frequent international travel.
Bed Bugs can live up to one and a half years, producing between one and eight eggs daily. Bed Bugs survive by sucking blood from their human or animal host, generally feeding at night. The host usually wakes up with inflamed bites in clusters or rows and did not notice being bitten during the night, and sometimes not until hours later.
Bed Bugs try to hide in small places like the creases of sheets, door frames, pockets, just about anywhere they can fit themselves into, so to avoid an infestation try to clear up any possible hiding places for a bed bug. Check under and around the mattress, clean the whole bed thoroughly and change sheets regularly to avoid the infestation. If one does occur it is important to call for an appointment.
