What are bed bugs?
Bed bugs or bedbugs are parasitic insects of the cimicid family that feed exclusively on blood. Cimex lectularius, the common bed bug, is the best known, as it prefers to feed on human blood.
The name “bed bug” derives from the preferred habitat of Cimex lectularius: warm houses and especially near or inside beds and bedding or other sleep areas. Bed bugs are mainly active at night but are not exclusively nocturnal. They usually feed on their hosts without being noticed. If you find an infestation of bed bugs in your home or business, contact us to get your bed bugs eliminated for good. Not sure if you have bed bugs? We also provide bed bug inspections.
Bed bugs, as the name implies, are commonly associated with areas where we sleep. These insects lay dormant during daylight hours in small cracks and crevices, coming out at night to feed on our blood. Bedbugs often hide near bedding areas but can travel up to 100 feet to obtain a meal. Most activity occurs between midnight and 7:00 a.m. The bite of a bedbug is painless, but most people will develop an allergic reaction to the saliva transferred from the bugs as they feed. The reaction will result in red swollen and itchy skin. Rid your home of bed bugs, contact us today!
