 In Bed Bugs

One of the most unsettling of all the pests found at home are the bed bugs. The worst part of having a house with bed bugs infestation is that these little tiny pests feed on human blood (and do so while you are sleeping unaware). If bed bugs are not controlled and eliminated quickly, the infestation can quickly get out of control and bed bugs can rapidly multiply in to hundreds if not thousands in numbers.

Bed bugs are insects from the genus Cimex family, they feed on the blood of birds, mammals humans as they are nocturnal (active during night time) it’s hard to spot them for the untrained eye. Bed bugs are reddish brown in color and roughly the size of a single grain of rice.

There have been many cases where Canadians have had severe side effects due to bed bug bites too. Keep in mind that Bed-Bug infections can cause all sorts of health issues ranging from skin rashes, uncomfortable and often painful itching, severe allergic symptoms and even psychological effects if they’re left untreated.
