Bed bugs have been a significant pest for what feels like forever, and can be the cause of numerous illnesses and conditions. According to the embedded video, the pest is the fastest-growing pest control emergency in the developed world. They can hide in places you’d never expect, and you may not even know you have an infestation at all. If you do discover bed bugs in your home, it’s best to consult a bed bug exterminations specialist for advice.

They can hide in the walls, in between wallpaper, and behind power outlets. Thankfully, they can’t crawl very far, but once they get access to a person, they take bites out of them and feed on their blood.

Fortunately, bed bugs are an easier pest to deal with. They absolutely hate heat, and cannot withstand temperatures above 115 degrees Fahrenheit. For simple infestations, using a high-heat cycle in your dryer can work in extermination, but larger colonies not attached to clothing or sheets can be more difficult to deal with.

Thankfully, bed bugs cannot transfer illnesses to people through bites. Even though they take bites out of people and create wounds, there are no known transferable diseases. However, if you do suspect an infestation, consider a bed bug exterminations specialist to help.
