What is Feeding On Me
Bed Bugs came to the US around the 17th Century from Europe. Bed Bugs can enter your home inside used furniture or from a visitor who has bed bugs in their home. Bed bugs can also stow away in suitcases, backpacks, and shoes. Even occasional travelers have been known to bring bed bugs home with them.
Bed Bugs have not been proven to spread disease through their bites. Not all people react the same to bed bug bites and some even have delayed reactions to the bites. Bites can appear in several rows. If you have a reaction to bites, they are generally red, itchy welts present.
An actual bed bug sighting or a sample of a bed bug is needed to be certain that you have an infestation or activity. Bed bug bites or symptoms might be clues, but cannot determine certainty of bed bug presence. There are many pest you may try to control on your own, but bed bugs should not be one of them.

What to look for
Bed bugs hide in small spaces, cracks, and crevices near where you lounge, rest, and sleep. They can be found behind baseboards, upholstery, and in any kind of furniture. You need to check wall-hangings, night stands, stuffed furniture, floor-board cracks, behind loose wallpaper, light switches, window treatments, and door and window frames. If an infestation is heavy, bed bugs can be found in wall voids, attics and enclosed spaces. Signs
of infestation include small reddish-brown fecal spots on surfaces and sometimes a very sweet odor. If you wake up each morning with bites then you may have bed bugs. If you have bites that occur at different times of the day and in various locations such as at home , in your car, or at work, it is much less likely the cause is bed bugs.
Bed Bug Behavior
Bed bugs have a "stay-Hidden" behavior, are active at night, and venture out to feed on your blood. These bugs are hearty little critters and can live more that a year without a blood meal. Bed bugs do not result from poor sanitation or social status, but are spread as we go about our various daily concerns. They are not limited to the bed or the bedroom, but eventually move throughout your home. Bed bugs will crawl considerable distances to obtain a blood meal.
