Did you know?
Bed bugs are small, flat, parasitic insects that feed solely on the blood of people and animals while they sleep.
Bed bugs can live several months without a blood meal.
Bed bugs locate their warm-blooded hosts by detecting exhaled car vbon dioxide.
A few bed bugs can become a large infestation quickly. One female bed bug may produce up to 500 offspring during its lifetime, and three generations can live per year.
Dogs are reliable bed bug detectors. Dogs have about 250 million receptors and blood hounds have about 350 million. In comparison, humans have about 35 million. However, the cost of using dogs to detect bed bugs can be prohibitive.
