Bedbugs are parasites that feed on any warm-blooded animal, most typically humans. They nest in seams and crevices of furniture in places that are close to human contact, particularly mattresses, bed frames, baseboards, and upholstery.
Bedbugs are commonly called hitchhikers; they “hitch a ride” on other people or things to get to new nest sites. Used furniture, yard sale items, or house guests can bring them into your home. Signs of bedbug infestations include swelling and itching of bites when you wake up and small reddish-brown spots on the sheets from the bugs’ droppings.
If you notice any potential bedbug activity, you should immediately seek a professional consultation.
