What Are Bed Bugs?

Bed bugs are nocturnal and typically come out at night to feed on their hosts (you) while they sleep. Bedbug saliva contains both anesthetic and anticoagulant compounds, allowing them to feed for several minutes before retreating back to their hiding places. The bites of bed bugs can cause itching, swelling, and redness, and in some cases, people may develop an allergic reaction or secondary infection from scratching the bites. However, bed bugs are not known to transmit diseases to humans.

Bed bugs are notoriously difficult to get rid of without the help of professional pest control experts. They can survive for months without feeding, so simply leaving a room unoccupied for a few weeks will not necessarily eliminate them. Effective treatment usually involves finding a professional pest control expert — like us!

How Did I Get Bedbugs?

In most cases, bed bugs come from someone or somewhere else outside your home. Bed bugs are common in movie theaters, airports, hotels, buses, workspaces, or anywhere else people may gather. You have a greater risk in these areas because each room creates a chance for exposure to a series of guests that come from a variety of homes. It’s a common misconception that only messy homes fall prey to bedbugs — they can happen to just about anyone.
