BED BUG FACTS…..
- Bed bugs are ectoparasites, meaning they are external parasites. Like vampires they suck the blood of humans and animals.
- Bed bugs are rather flat allowing them to crawl into tight spaces…like between mattresses and box springs, seams of mattresses, cushions, luggage, bedding, furniture, behind wallpaper, etc.
- Bed bugs are great travelers. The scent of human skin can send a bed bug racing across a room at a pace of 10′ per hour. That’s fast considering they can be anywhere from 1 to 7 millimeters long. Hiding within bedding, pillows, luggage, overnight bags, the bed bug can easily become a cross-country or international travelers….via plane, train, car, boat, motorcycle, bicycle, space shuttle….no passport required.
- Bed bugs communicate with each other via aggregation pheromones. When they find a host, they emit an aggregation pheromone telling other bed bugs to come on over….. Unlike a sex pheromone, the aggregation pheromone calls both male & female, at any stage of development.
