Bed bugs are small, very flat (think credit card) wingless insects that feed on the blood of animals – mostly humans. Anyone can be affected by bed bugs. They are not attracted to dirt, although clutter does provide them more available hiding places . They can be found almost anywhere, from five star hotels to hostels, in planes, trains and automobiles, and most public places like libraries, schools, and even retail stores.
They don't live on humans, but are easily spread by hitching a ride on clothing, handbags and suitcases, and upholstered furniture among other things. So; if you have bed bugs...it's not your fault and you're not alone!
Bed bugs are usually active at night, preferring to feed under cover of darkness while their victims are sleeping. Once they've had their fill, they scurry back to their hiding places until time for the next meal.
