Bed Bugs in the United States have made a strong comeback since nearly being eradicated decades ago. Changes in our pesticide legislation, a lack of public awareness, in addition to an increase in international travel, have given this blood sucking pest the opportunity to flourish again in this country. Bed Bugs are a hitchhiking pest, latching themselves onto luggage, bags and clothing. They can be found in homes, apartments, hotels, dormitories, schools, hospitals, movie theaters and virtually any public space where people gather. A common misconception about what causes Bed Bug infestations in the first place is a lack of cleanliness. Although lack of cleanliness and clutter are not the cause of an infestation, they can make a successful Bed Bug treatment a challenge. The more clutter, the more places for them to hide and breed. Their flattened bodies allow them to virtually hide and travel undetected within any cracks or crevices such as behind electrical wall plates, behind baseboards, behind picture frames, inside mattresses and box springs, and behind bed headboards. Their cryptic and nocturnal behaviors can make them very difficult to detect as they usually feed at night on their warm-blooded human hosts and while remaining hidden during the day.
