The Behavior of a Bed Bug
Bed bugs are parasitic insects that feed exclusively on blood, it prefers to feed on human blood. A number of adverse health effects may result from bed bug bites, including skin rashes, psychological effects, and allergic symptoms. They are not known to transmit any pathogens as disease vectors.
Bed bugs have been known as human parasites for thousands of years. At a point in the early 1940s, they were mostly eradicated in the developed world, but have increased in prevalence since 1995, likely due to pesticide resistance, travel, and tech innovation.
They Are Great Travelers
Bed bugs are great “hitch hikers,” allowing them to travel long distances. They are skilled at grabbing onto objects like clothes, suitcases, packages, and furniture, they are there for the ride and can end up wherever these items are taken to begin infestation in their new location. This is why the spread of bed bugs occurs so easily in schools, apartments, and stores.
