A lot of people are curious how bed bugs make it into their own mattress and couches. Well they don’t usually come up from underneath your house, they are in fact a type of hitch hiker bug. They latch on and are transported by luggage, purses, shoes, clothing, and anything they can latch on to. These tiny little critters live on human blood to complete each stage of it’s life, but can live up to 1 year without feeding. They can sense your blood through detecting the carbon dioxide in your respiration. This is why the majority of bites will be near the neck, head, back, and arms. Thankfully if this happens to you there are solutions!
