5 Things You May Not Know About Bed Bugs
BED BUGS CAN LIVE ANYWHERE
They are commonly found in single-family homes, apartments, hospitals, dorm rooms, offices, schools, nursing homes, movie theaters, libraries and just about anywhere that humans are.
BED BUGS ARE HARDY
These pests can live for several months without a blood meal. This means they can linger in furniture, bags and suitcases for a long time until they are near a human host again.
BED BUGS ARE SMART
They know to stay out of view during the day, hiding in mattresses, box springs, electrical outlets and even behind wallpaper. But at night, the carbon dioxide we exhale tempts them out of hiding.
BED BUGS ARE METHODICAL
Once a bed bug finds a host, it will usually feed for 5 to 10 minutes until full. The bite mark patterns they leave behind - often in clusters or in a row on exposed skin- are telltale signs of a bed bug infestation.
BED BUGS ARE EFFICIENT
Bed bugs don't normally wake people up at night because components in their saliva act as an anesthetic and promote increased blood flow at the bite site, making the process quick and nearly painless.
What Does a Bed Bug Infestation Look Like?
This video gives you an inside look at a bed bug infestation that Larue treated in a beautiful, upscale home in Fort Myers, FL.
Sadly, the homeowners unintentionally brought bed bugs into their home when they purchased a crib from a second hand store for their granddaughter to sleep in while visiting.
At first, when they noticed unusual marks on her body and thought it might be an allergic reaction to their detergent. Soon though, the rest of the family began waking up with red welts on their arms and legs and they knew the problem was more serious than they originally thought. By this time, the bed bugs had spread into the rest of their home. This story is proof that it doesn't matter how much money you make, how healthy you eat or how clean your home is... bed bugs don't discriminate.
