“Sleep tight, don’t let the bed bugs bite.”
While this may have seemed like a harmless expression when you were a kid, bed bugs are now becoming a serious epidemic all over the country.
Bed bugs hide in small crevices and often hitchhike in luggage, furniture, clothing, and boxes. Used furniture such as mattresses and bed frames are among their favorite places to live. Bed bugs are hard to find in the beginning of an infestation, and even more difficult to completely eliminate from your home or business without professional help.
The movie theater, the bus, a doctor’s office, and even your friend’s house are just a few of the many places you can pick up bed bugs. Unfortunately, keeping your home clean is not much of a deterrent for bed bugs. They only need one thing to live – human blood.
