What Can You Do About Bed Bugs?
Bedbugs are brown and ovular shaped parasites which consume peoples’ blood. Since the past Century, Bedbugs have been rampant in North America. When a bug bites someone, they leave a painful and itchy mark. The bite, however, is not infectious. Unlike cockroaches and other pests, bedbugs also survive in clean places because they consume blood. When a bug is growing, it sheds its skin up to five times. In her lifetime, a mother bedbug lays up to a hundred eggs.
There are many ways in which someone’s place can end up with bedbugs. One, someone may end up picking them up in their schools, their friends’ home, a hotel or various public places more often in sleeping areas.
