Bed bugs may have originated in the Middle East, living in caves inhabited by bats and humans. Often referred to as blood-sucking parasites, these insects originally lived off the blood of bats, until humans started moving into caves.
The name ”bed bug”, is derived from the insect’s preferred habitat of housing, which IS NOT limited, too just your beds.
These parasites are also known as “Hitchhikers”, because of how they hitch rides to destinations all over the world. Bed bugs begin creating their own families from hitching rides in your luggage, backpacks, shoes, and yes, even your clothes. Once they find a place to call home, you will find these insects in your beds, mattresses, bedding, vehicles, furniture, carpeting, baseboards, and bedside clutter.
A female can lay up to five (5) eggs a day, which can produce anywhere from ten to fifteen (10-15) nymphs per egg. Bed bugs are usually nocturnal, unless, you are infested. They feed between the hours of 2 a.m. to 5:00 a.m.
