What are bed bugs and why are they a problem?
Bed bugs are parasitic insects that feed on human blood. They got the name “bed bug” due to the fact that they are often found living in bedrooms in people’s homes and hotel rooms. Bed bugs are usually seen at night when they are out searching for a host. They are know to easily spread from home to home and hotel room to hotel room by hitching a ride on people’s personal belongings. Hotels try their best to keep these pests out however, even the cleanest hotels can be infested.
A bite from a bed bug can lead to other health effects like skin rashes, and allergy symptoms. Bed bugs multiply quickly and are becoming an increasing problem in the United States.
