Bed Bug Location

    Where do bed bugs come from?

    In temperate zones all across the planet bed bugs have always been with us. However, their populations have been small since the late 1950s due to the powerful pesticides used during that time. Those insects that survived the onslaught of these control measures have slowly rebuilt their populations. In addition, the world has become a more accessible place for travelers and goods, making it easier for the insect to find new hosts. Bed bugs usually hide during the day. If you see them frequently during the day, this is usually an indication that an infestation is quite severe. They will usually hide near sleeping areas due to the host being available for longer periods of uninterrupted time in order for them to feed.
