Have you been searching for how to get rid of bed bugs? Once an afterthought, these pests have made quite the resurgence recently. The more you know about bed bugs, the better your chances of avoiding them.
BED BUG BASICS
This pest gets its name from the fact that it is usually found in close proximity to beds. That's because bed bugs need the blood of warm-blooded animals to survive. Unfortunately, bed bugs can mature in about 35 days. They then live about seven to 12 months. This makes bed bug removal difficult to do without the help of a professional.
THE BED BUG BITE
Bed bugs primarily feed on humans sleeping in bed at night. The bite is painless, and the blood meal takes about 10 minutes.
BED BUGS ON THE HUNT
How do bed bugs find hosts while they are asleep? Body heat, the carbon dioxide from exhaled breath and other biological signatures help focus the bed bugs on unsuspecting, snoozing hosts. The bed bug feeds, then retreats back to its place of harborage for days or even weeks before coming back out. This can make detection difficult until the infestation is well established.
BED BUGS ON THE MOVE
Bed bugs are skilled hitchhikers. In fact, they are primarily transported by humans and human belongings like suitcases.
