Bed Bugs are only in dingy hotels, right?
Wrong! Bed bugs are found all over the world and are nondiscriminatory. Meaning, they can be found in the ritziest of homes and hotels to apartments and homeless shelters. They’re small, parasitic insects that feed solely on the blood of people and animals while they sleep. Bed bugs are reddish-brown in color, wingless, range from 1mm to 7mm and can live several months without feeding. Since they are so small and active at night, this makes it difficult to detect them during the day. More info here on bed bugs here.
