Bed bugs are blood-eating insects. They feed on human blood, most commonly at night. If you have bed bugs in your home, it’s probably the Cimex lectularius (the common bed bug). They spread by crawling between nearby locations or by hitching rides on your belongings. They don’t fly but they can crawl very quickly.
Bed bugs have not been shown to transmit disease. However, they do bite and cause damage to your belongings. If you have bed bugs in your space, you may experience:
» Allergic reactions to their bites.
» Infections of the skin from the bite reaction.
» Declining mental health from living in an infested space.
