Get Rid of Bed Bugs in Your Home
Bed bugs, once nearly eradicated as a common pest in the United States, are reappearing in record numbers across the country and around the world.
Bed bug infestations are being reported everywhere people live and work: homes, dormitories, apartments, motels, hotels, schools, theaters, trains, buses, offices, hospitals, department stores – and the list goes on.The best defense against them starts with knowing a little about them – what they look like, where they hide, and how they spread.
What Do Bed Bugs Look Like?
Bed Bugs are small, flat shaped, wingless bugs. Adult bed bugs are brown in color, though they sometimes appear red after feeding. The average size of a bed bug is 4 to 5 mm, or about the size of a pencil eraser. Juvenile, or baby bed bugs, may be difficult to see, though adults can typically be found in the bedding and mattresses of an infested home.
