Bed bugs are parasitic insects of the cimicid family that feed exclusively on blood. The common bed bug, known as Cimex lectularius, is the most common type as it prefers to feed on human blood. Bed bugs are named so because they prefer to live in warm houses near or inside beds and sheets. Bed bugs are mainly active at night, and usually go unnoticed as they feed on their host.
When bitten by a bed bug, several adverse reactions may occur such as skin rash, psychological effects, and allergic symptoms. The trained professionals at Peterson Pest Management are always available to remove and eradicate these unwanted pests from your home. Contact us today.
