The Notorious Bed Bug
The thought of slipping into your bed after a long, hard day of work will put a smile on almost anyone. But the thought of a blood sucking bed bug snuggling up beside you isn’t so comforting. The bed bug is a notorious species that has adapted to living entirely with humans. Within the last couple of decades the bed bug has had a tremendous resurgence. Bed bugs can be accidentally carried into your home via furniture, luggage, clothes and other materials so problems with bed bugs tend to be most severe in apartments, motels and other locations that accommodate a high volume of people.
Bed Bug Nightmares
Bed bugs usually feed in the middle of the night while people are sleeping and don’t notice the painless bites. The idea of a blood sucking bed bug taking a bite out of you while you’re enjoying what you think is a good night’s sleep, will quickly turn your dreams into bed bug nightmares. A bed bug often feeds for less than ten minutes before the insect is satisfied and returns to a hiding place to digest the meal. If there was only one bed bug, it might not be so bad. The problem is how quickly they multiply. A cluster or line of bites often appear where several bed bugs have fed on your exposed skin.
