About the Bed Bug

Under ideal conditions, bed bugs can live for nearly a year. They are nocturnal and feed exclusively from the blood of their host. The female lays eggs throughout her life, making it difficult to control an infestation.

Sure signs of a bed bug problem include seeing the bugs on the mattress or other furniture; noticing skin casings from younger bed bugs that are molting; or experiencing unexplainable bites and skin conditions.
