What Are Bed Bugs?

Bed bugs are small copper/reddish brown parasites that feed on the blood of warm-blooded hosts. These nocturnal creatures are attracted to their hosts by their host’s breath. Bed bugs are very common around the world and have been plaguing humans since the beginning of time. Although they were once eradicated in the United States in the 1940s, they have made a huge return more recently with the boom in international travel and shipping.

How Do I Know I Have Bed Bugs?

Bed bugs leave evidence during an infestation. The most common evidence is bites on their victims. These bites are not painful, however, they do leave red marks. Common bite areas include your back, the inside of your arms or on the back of your legs and feet. Their bites also leave behind drops of blood, so if you notice small blood stains on your mattress, you may want to look around for other indicators. Bed bugs also live in the creases of furniture and mattresses. If you lift up your mattress or remove the seats from your chairs, you may find bed bugs or bed bug droppings. If you think you see any signs of bed bug activity, call Pest Innovations today for a full-structure bed bug inspection.

My House Is Clean, How Did I Get Bed Bugs?

Bed bugs enter the home through a variety of ways, most often by hitching a ride on you or your luggage. In apartments, bed bugs travel through wall voids and infest the entire structure. Bed bugs are not an indicator of uncleanliness. They spread quickly because they travel in suitcases, on clothing, in storage compartments and on used furniture. They can also move easily between walls in hotels or live in the fabric seats of movie theaters. Birds and other wildlife can transfer these pests to your property. A bed bug infestation is easy to acquire because all it takes is for one pregnant female to attach herself to you or your items before you find your home or work space infested.

Do Bed Bugs Spread Disease?

There has never been any scientific evidence linking bed bugs to disease like other parasites such as mosquitos. Even if a bed bug bites multiple people in one night, it is not possible for human diseases to spread from the bites.
