Bed Bug – What Is It?
Bedbugs are a type of ectoparasite that feeds on blood. While they’ll consume animal blood, they prefer human blood. As the name suggests, bedbugs hide in your bed and wait for you to fall asleep at night. When it gets dark, they’ll come out and begin feeding on your blood. They’re small insects with most being 3/16 of an inch, so they can hide exceptionally well.
Why Does My Home Have Bedbugs?
There are numerous ways for bedbugs to enter your home. They often hitchhike on luggage, clothing, and other items to enter a victim’s home. If you spend the night at an infested hotel, there is a good chance that the bugs are going to cling to your luggage and clothing. When you return home, they’ll sneak into your bedroom and wait there until the lights go off. Bedbugs have become a major problem in motels and apartment buildings. Furthermore, you may purchase used furniture that is infested with bedbugs. If you live near someone with bedbugs, the bugs may crawl to your property and ending your dwelling as well.
