How to Find a Bed Bug Eradication Service

Think you've got a big problem with bed bugs, here are some things you just might want to know. First, you need to understand what bed bugs are and what they do.

This was because of a pesticide called DDT, which was highly effective yet banned because it was also highly dangerous. Less effective pesticides as well as increased international travel have contributed to today's bed bug infestations in North America.

Bed bugs often live in mattresses, because they're most active at night and feed on sleeping humans.

As I matured, I learned that bedbugs were once the scourge of the very rich and very poor. These evil little bugs didn’t discriminate. They made everyone’s life miserable; every night was a bite fest. They infested homes and particularly liked living in people’s beds. Who wouldn’t? For centuries these little creatures made everyone’s sleep a nightmare.

Finally, upper and middle class people learned how to get rid of the creatures. Bedbugs became the pest of the lower classes who lived in tenements and flop houses. Then DDT and other horrific pesticides eradicated the menace. There were no more bedbugs. Unfortunately, there must have been a few somewhere hiding because history is now repeating itself. Bedbugs are...
