Bedbugs earned their name for the place they most commonly like to infest—the bed. They are parasites that live solely off the blood of humans and animals. Although they don’t fly, they move quickly and are agile enough to vanish into the tiniest of crevices.
Bedbugs are often introduced into the home through luggage, used furniture, and clothing. They can be picked up while traveling from hotels and taxi cabs. You can even encounter them in offices, movie theaters, and restaurants. Once in the home, they tuck themselves into bed frames, box springs, and mattresses and bite throughout the night.
- Approximately 3/16” long
- Oval, wingless, reddish brown bugs
- Thin enough to hide in narrow cracks and small crevices
- May emit a robust musty odor
If a bedbug problem isn’t treated, they can spread throughout the bedroom and home. A common myth is that dirt attracts bedbugs. These pests can be found in the cleanest and most dirty of environments. Dirt doesn’t attract them, their next meal of blood does.
When left untreated, a bedbug infestation can quickly grow. Signs of a problem include:
- Waking up with itchy areas you didn’t have when going to sleep
- Dark, rust-colored spots of excrement on bedding, mattresses, and walls
- Blood stains on your bedding and/or mattress
