Bedbugs are nasty parasites that feed exclusively on blood. Since the 1950’s, bedbugs were not so common here in the US, but were in other countries. The reality is, that with so much international travel these days, like an air-borne virus, they are now rapidly spreading globally and not to be taken lightly.
They are especially common in places with high volume turnover rates like hotels, businesses, dormitories and work environments. But, are easily be brought into your home by visitors, used furniture, beds and clothing.
It was once thought that people that had bugs were dirty or homeless. This can’t be further from the truth when it comes to bedbugs. Anyone can get bedbugs. They don’t care who you are, rich or poor, clean or dirty. All they want is your blood.
Once present, it stays close to where it can obtain a blood meal. So, bedrooms and resting areas like easy chairs and couches are the most common places you’ll find them first.
However, as they grow into larger infestations, they can virtually invade any surface or area throughout your whole home.
