Really hard to get rid of – but not for us!
Remember the old saying “Sleep tight, don’t let the bed bugs bite.” Well they’re real. And infestations used to be so common people had no choice but to just get used to these little cridders.
Blood Sucking Cridders
Bedbugs are small, oval, brownish insects that live on the blood of animals and humans. They have flat bodies that let them creep into tiny places like under your mattress, inside the box spring, bed frame, headboard or inside your walls. They don’t fly but they can move pretty quickly and each female can lay hundreds of eggs.
Why do they live in beds?
Because that’s where their food is – YOU!
They crawl out at night like mini zombies who want to drink your blood so they can reproduce to make more blood sucking evil little zombie bedbugs.

Where else can they live?
Because bedbugs live solely on blood, having them in your home is not a sign of dirtiness. You are as likely to find them in immaculate homes and hotel rooms as in filthy ones. Over time, however, they may scatter through the bedroom, moving into any crevice or protected location. They may also spread to nearby rooms or apartments.
Signs of Infestation
If you wake up with itchy areas you didn’t have when you went to sleep, you may have bedbugs, particularly if you got a used bed or other used furniture around the time the bites started. Other signs that you have bedbugs include:
- Blood stains on your sheets or pillowcases
- Dark or rusty spots of bedbug excrement on sheets and mattresses, bed clothes, and walls
- Bedbug fecal spots, egg shells, or shed skins in areas where bedbugs hide
- An offensive, musty odor from the bugs’ scent glands
