So mommy told the five-year old you that you shouldn’t let the bed bugs bite, but did you? You probably woke up with red spots on the neck for several mornings and that only proved how clueless and helpless you were.
What are Bed Bugs?
As already mentioned, bed bugs are blood-sucking insects which feed on humans. There are two kinds of these bugs: the common bed bugs which can be found almost all over the world and the tropical bed bugs which are mainly found in tropical countries.
You are not likely to see bed bugs roaming around the house because aside, from being tiny little monsters, they are nocturnal and only come out to feed at night when you are already having that much-needed rest. At day time, bed bugs hide in different cracks and crevices of your home—beds, skirting boards, loose wall paper, and everywhere else possible.
How do Bed Bugs get into your home?
Bed Bugs get into your home by hitchhiking on clothing , luggage as well as used furniture and bedding.
Visiting someone that has bed bugs can bring them home with you. They have been found in theaters, Dr’s offices, trains, and buses. Service workers going from home to home, such as cleaning, health care and delivery, can bring beg bugs into your home.
As you can see the problem with bed bugs is spreading rapidly.
