Bed Bug Treatment
Bed bugs are a brown flat type insect that feeds on the blood of animals, mostly humans, but they will also bite dogs, cats, birds, and rodents. Young bed bugs look very similar to adults, only are smaller. Females lay eggs in secluded places, usually 1 or 2 a day. These eggs are small and hard to see without magnification, and usually hatch within a week. An infestation of bed bugs can happen quickly, finding homes in mattresses, recliners, couches, and other areas.
The bed bugs are most active at night while people are sleeping. These bites are painless and can go undetected for hours, days, or even weeks. Some reactions may occur in itchy red welts.
An infestation can occur if a person has been travelling. They may have picked up a bug in their suitcase or clothing and brought it back to their home. There is little to no correlation between cleanliness and a bed bug infestation due to their sole diet of blood; a bug can hitchhike from anywhere to infest a new location.
