Bed Bug Awareness Week is June 4 – 10. If you’re wondering about what you should know about bed bugs, read on!
Bed bugs are not usually the kind of thing that people worry about when they think about pests in their home. This could be because bed bugs are associated with unclean locations. While this can be true, bed bugs do not particularly care if a place is clean or dirty. What they care about is a food source and a place to hide. This means that any home – your home – is susceptible to a bed bug infestation.
Bed bugs are very portable and love to travel to new locations. They tend to appear after people visit places that already have them – such as hotels or another home away from home. They may be present in a new apartment, or they may make their way into your current home on a piece of used furniture, a used area rug or on other household or personal items.
