Oh No, I Think I Have Bed Bugs!

A Few Questions Customers Commonly Ask Us About Bed Bugs
#1 "I thought bed bugs only lived in dirty places?"

This one's definitely a nope.

Bed bugs aren't attracted to the conditions of your home or office whether it's unkept or immaculate. They are attracted to the carbon dioxide you breathe out, the body heat you produce while you're sleeping, and will also even travel up to 20 feet from their hiding place to feed. In some cases, there can be dozens actively feasting during the night in a home. So, in reality, bed bugs aren't in your home to enjoy your decorative skills... but rather to simply satisfy their hunger by feeding on the blood of the unsuspecting hosts and to multiply. Anyone can get bed bugs. They aren't picky choosers, let alone picky eaters.

#2 "How did they get here? & Where did they come from?"

Interestingly, bed bugs are considered the sneakiest of hitchhikers being that they can attach themselves onto you and the clothing you're wearing without you knowing. The items to be particularly mindful of when traveling or being out and about are

purses, luggage, school backpacks, and laptop cases. Also, use caution and inspect before when you purchase used items like furniture, clothing, and linens for bed bugs and other pests. And bed bugs can even catch a ride on the guests you welcome into your home as well...

#3 "How do I get rid of them?"
