BED BUG INFORMATION

What are bed bugs and what do they look like

  • Bed bugs are small flat wingless insects that feed on human and animal blood usually during the night. They are reddish brown in color. Adult insects can be quarter inch in length and have a shape similar to an apple seed.  Nymph stages of this insect are roughly the same size as the small lettering on a penny.

How do bed bugs spread?

  • Bed bugs are hitchhikers! They hitchhike across the country feeding on you! (GROSS). Due to an increase in business and leisure travel bed bugs are now prevalent in all areas of the United States. They travel on your luggage, your body, your clothes, your laptop computer, anywhere you can think they
    can hide.

How do bed bugs feed on you?

When they bite the bed bugs inject an anesthetic (keeps you from feeling the bite) and an anticoagulant (keeps the blood flowing, instead of your body's natural ability to clot) that prevents a person from feeling the bite. They feed on you for 5-10 minutes.
