Have bed bugs invaded your home? Contrary to popular belief, these pesky parasitic insects are not picky about where they live and are certainly not an indication of the cleanliness of your home or business. All it takes is a chance encounter in a public area or an acquaintance’s home, and that is enough to precipitate a full-blown infestation. In fact, travel is widely recognized as the most common cause of bed bug infestations.      

So, what exactly is a bed bug?

Bed bugs are insects from the genus Cimex Lectularious, and they feed on the blood of animals, usually at night. They are typically spotted in mattresses and detected by the lesions found on the skin after overnight feedings. Although the common bedbug prefers humans, they will also bite other warm-blooded animals such as dogs, cats, birds and rodents. Bed bugs are attracted to warmth, blood and carbon dioxide, which is why they can really be found anywhere.
