Bed bugs are small parasitic insects that feed on the blood of humans and animals. These pests are often found in mattresses, bedding, furniture, and cracks in walls or floors. Bed bugs are known to cause a number of health problems, including skin rashes, allergic reactions, and even psychological distress. In some cases, bed bug bites can also lead to secondary infections.
Despite their name, bed bugs can be found in many places other than beds. These pests are often brought into homes on used furniture or clothing. They can also hitch a ride on luggage, backpacks, or other items that are brought into a home from an infested location. Once inside, bed bugs will hide in cracks and crevices, making it difficult to eliminate them.
