Bed bugs are insects that feed off of your blood and leave behind residue as they go about their business. They are about the size of a nickel and dark red in color. While most people don’t suffer any serious harm by bed bugs, they can certainly bring about quite the headache.
Bed bugs have made quite a return in the U.S. as well as all over the world. The public suffered a brief reprieve from these pests during World War II, thanks in large part to the popular use of DDT, a pesticide that gave them much needed protection from pests. The resurgence in recent years has been likely due to various reasons, including more frequent pest attacks, less stringent pest control measures, and perhaps a little more vigilance exercised in the past.
Unfortunately, bed bugs are a real problem that can attack at almost any point of time. One sign that bed bugs are in your home or apartment is that they will frequently bite you on several occasions – these nasty little bites can be very itchy! In addition, bed bugs often hide in your linens and clothes, so even if you aren’t directly touching any areas where bed bugs may be hiding, they are still there! It’s important to always look out for signs of bites, and treat infestations immediately if you discover them. If left unchecked, bed bugs can really ruin your day – so do something about them right away!
