Everything You Need to Know About Bed Bugs:
We've all heard the saying "Sleep tight and don't let the bed bugs bite." That simple childhood rhyme has a basis in truth. These tiny pests have a taste for human blood that draws them into dwellings such as homes, apartments, and hotels.
What Are Bed Bugs:
Bed Bugs, Cimex lectularius, are attracted to human body heat and the exhaled carbon dioxide of humans at rest. Nocturnal, bed bugs hide during the day, coming out at night to feed on human hosts. By inserting their beaks into the flesh around the head, neck and upper extremities, bed bugs feed on humans for about ten minutes at a time, before retreating to their hiding places, undetected. About the same size as ticks or small cockroaches, adult bed bugs are reddish-brown or mahogany in color and flat. Female bed bugs are round, while males are more oval shaped. Adult bed bugs are about the size of an apple seed.
In the past, bed bugs were mistakenly believed to thrive only in unclean, lower socio-economic living conditions but today's bed bugs know no class divisions, as bed bugs can be found anywhere people live and congregate including:
- Multi-unit homes
- Single-family homes
- College / School / Nurcery
- Healthcare facilities
- Laundry or Shuttle buses
- Entertainment venues, like movie theatres
