Bed Bugs get their name because they like to live and feed in beds.


Bed Bugs like to travel and will hide in suitcases, boxes and shoes to be near a food supply. They are elusive, nocturnal creatures. They can hide behind baseboards, electrical switch plates, picture frames, even wall paper. They come out at night for a blood meal.


Bed Bugs like to hide in small cracks and crevices close to a human environment. They can be found behind baseboards, wallpaper, upholstery, and in furniture crevices.


Although bed bugs can dine on any warm-blooded animal, they primarily dine on humans. Bedbugs do not transmit diseases, but their bites can become red, itchy welts.


Vacuum suitcases after returning from a vacation. Check your bed sheets for tell-tale blood spots. Bed Bugs are elusive creatures, so it is imperative to seek professional pest control to address an infestation.
