About Bed Bugs


It is believed the bed bug originally was associated with bats living in tree holes and in caves of the Middle East. It was in caves that these parasites became associated with man. As man moved from cave to village the bed bug followed and became permanent associates.


This democratic creature draws no line between the impoverished or the wealthy, but its presence is more evident in poorer quarters owing to conditions more favorable for its survival. Nevertheless, these bugs can invade event the most immaculate homes.


The bed bug is distributed readily in laundry and on clothes and baggage of individuals who have visited infested premises. This pest is disseminated primarily from one hose or apartment or another by stowing away in furniture and bedding that has been moved, or by attaching itself to articles placed in an infested moving van. Second-hand furniture, old books and lumber salvage from demolished houses offer other means of ingress.


Common Bed Bug Myths


Myth: Bed bugs live in dirty places.

Reality: Bed bugs are not attracted to dirt and grime; they are attracted to warmth, blood and carbon dioxide. However, clutter offers more hiding spots.


Myth: Bed bugs transmit diseases.

Reality: There are no cases that indicate bed bugs pass diseases from one host to another. Lab tests have shown that it is unlikely that the insect is capable of infecting its host.


Myth: Bed bugs won’t come out if the room is brightly lit.

Reality: While bed bugs prefer darkness, keeping the light on at night won’t deter these pests from biting you.


Myth: Pesticide applications alone will easily eliminate bed bug infestations.

Reality: Bed bug control can only be maintained through a comprehensive treatment strategy that incorporates a variety of techniques and vigilant monitoring. Proper use of pesticides may be one component of the strategy, but will not eliminate bed bugs alone. In addition, bed bugs populations in different geographic areas of the country have developed resistance to many pesticidal modes of action. If you’re dealing with a resistant population, some products and application methods may only serve to make the problem worse. It is a good idea to consult a qualified pest management professional (PMP) if you have bed bugs in your home.
