“Sleep Tight, Don’ t Let the Bed Bugs Bite” has taken on a whole new meaning with the resurgence of these horrible bugs! With increased regulations on materials, such as DDT, and increased international travel, bed bugs have quickly made a return to the United States. Bed bugs have been found in five-star hotels and resorts, and their presence is not determined by the cleanliness of the living conditions where they are found.
Q: Where do bed bug infestations occur?
A: Around or near the areas where people sleep. These areas include apartments, shelters, rooming houses, hotels, cruise ships, buses, trains, and dorm rooms. They hide during the day in places such as seams of mattresses, box springs, bed frames, headboards, dresser tables, inside cracks or crevices, behind wallpaper, under baseboards, in between tack strip and the wall, or any other clutter or obj ects around a bed. Bed bugs have been shown to be able to travel over 100 feet in a night but tend to live within 8 feet of where people sleep.
Q: What happens if I get bitten by bed bugs?
A: Bed bug bites affect people differently. Bed bug bite responses can range from no response at all (an absence of any physical signs of the bite), Or, you may see a small bite mark, to a serious allergic reaction. Bed bugs are not considered to be dangerous; however, an allergic reaction to several bites may need medical attention.
