Bed Bugs 101

Bed Bugs New YorkDescription & Habits With the scientific name Cimex Lectularius, bed bugs are small, parasitic insects that feed on the blood of humans and other warm-blooded hosts. They are known as bed bugs because they like to nest in beds and feed on the blood of sleeping people. Bed bugs are most commonly found in bedrooms but infestations can occur virtually anywhere a human being is located, including but not limited to homes, hotels, movie theaters, retail establishments, dormitories, camps and airplanes. The list of possible bed bug locations is endless. Bed bugs are small and flat. They can fit into tight corners and crevices. They are often found hiding along the seams of mattresses, box springs, upholstered furniture, behind baseboards, inside floor cracks, wall cracks, loose wallpaper, and picture frames. Bed bugs are master hitchhikers and can be easily transported by human migration. Bed bugs can easily attach themselves to clothing, suitcases or bags - making their way home with the host where they quickly lay eggs and multiply. A female bed bug can lay hundreds of eggs over her lifetime. Once at a location, bed bugs spread easily between rooms and floors. Studies have linked outbreaks to travel and tourism. Contrary to popular belief, cleanliness and hygiene have nothing to do with bed bugs. A bed bug infestation can begin with exposure to just one bug.
