Bed bugs are parasitic pests that can be found living in areas near people all throughout the country. Bed bugs feed on the blood of mammals as their only source of nutrition, with human blood being their primary and preferred food source. Bed bugs are reddish-brown and have flat, oval-shaped bodies that resemble apple seeds. These insects also have an elongated, piercing mouthpart that they use to feed. Bed bugs are nocturnal and are most active right before dawn. They are wingless, and their main source of transportation is hitchhiking on people, their clothing, and their belongings.
The fact that bed bugs bite us and feed on our blood while we sleep is enough to make them a pest you definitely don’t want in your home, but this is not the end to the problems they cause. Bed bugs not only disrupt your sleep, but can present some health problems as well. In those allergic to their saliva, bed bug bites can lead to a raised red rash that can be very itchy; excessive itching can lead to a secondary infection that requires medical attention. Bed bugs, while not usually known for transmitting diseases to people, do harbor some disease-causing pathogens. Another issue with having bed bugs living in your home is that their feeding habits and excrement can stain your floors, walls, bedding, mattresses, and box springs. Lastly, having bed bugs in your home can be stressful, frustrating, and make you feel uncomfortable in your own home, a feeling that no homeowner ever wants to feel.
Bed bugs move from place to place by hitchhiking, making Las Vegas, a place where millions of residents and tourists alike come and go each day, a hot spot for bed bug activity. This constant flow of traffic allows bed bugs to continually find their way into our city and provides them with a constant mode of transportation. After coming into contact with them, bed bugs will crawl onto your clothing or personal belongings and then get carried into your home. Bed bugs are prolific breeders, and introducing even a couple into your house can potentially lead to a large scale infestation; it’s important to remember that a bed bug infestation can occur inside any home.
Bed bugs can be found anywhere people are. Homes, apartment buildings, hotels, hospitals, airports, shopping malls, movie theaters, museums, and office buildings are just a few examples of the places bed bugs live. Once inside, bed bugs hide their flat bodies in tight cracks and crevices, only emerging at night to feed. Common hiding spots for bed bugs include the seams of mattresses, box springs, upholstered furniture, and in the cracks of wooden furniture, walls, and floors; spaces behind wall hangings, electrical outlets, and inside of electronics also make good hiding spots for bed bugs.
