All too often homes and hospitality businesses suffer from the infestation that wrecks your sleep- the invasion insect we call bed bugs.
Bed bugs are small reddish or brown insects, shaped like wingless flat ovals. Adults can grow to be between ¼ inch and 3/8 inch, the size of an apple seed. Bed bugs live off of human blood, and are nocturnal so detection comes often only after and uncomfortable encounter. They also reproduce quickly, females lay up to 5 eggs a day reaching a total of 500 in a life time! This means bed bugs will not just go away, and even worse can live over 300 days in appropriate room temperatures with a constant supply of food.
