Bed bugs are parasitic insects of the Cimicid family that feed exclusively on blood. Bed bugs are found nearly everywhere on the planet. They tend to live in areas where humans gather or reside since they feed primarily on human blood. A bite from a bed bug will often become a red itchy welt.
Physical methods of controlling bed bugs include steam cleaning, vacuuming, heating, freezing, washing, and throwing out items that are infested. Bed bugs prefer to hide in cracks and crevices during the daytime and come out to feed on the host’s blood at night, usually while you are sleeping.
