Bed bugs are the bane of any home or business, and it’s important you get any infestation identified and dealt with quickly by a professional. These small creatures quickly make sleeping and resting a nightmare, and their itchy bites can be a huge distraction during the day. Although bed bugs will likely be around for millennia, there’s no reason why you have to give them free accommodation.
What Are Bed Bugs?
Bed bugs are little insects that feed on blood. To do that, they must feed on people while they’re sleeping (or very still), which is why they’re associated with bedding. Typically, they can range from 1/16 of an inch to 3/16 of an inch, and because the adults are oval and maroon, at a quick glance they may look a little bit like an apple seed or be mistaken for a very small cockroach. If you get bedbugs, you're most likely going to pickup adult hitchhikers. Using what we know about bed bug behavior a professional specializing in bed bugs can generally estimate how long an infestation has been going on for, and with more accuracy the sooner the infestation has been caught.
Bed bugs are technically a nuisance pest because they don’t spread disease, but they are unpleasant due to the itchy bites and can quickly cause emotional and psychological distress. They can survive for up to 6 months without feeding, but they won't do that if there is a food source anywhere nearby.
