MYTHS AND FACTS ABOUT BED BUGS FOR BED BUG AWARENESS WEEK
- MYTH: You only get bed bugs from seedy places. FALSE. The owners of our company actually got bed bugs at a high-end Disney area resort. Bed bugs are everywhere. And they do not discriminate. And bed bugs are NOT attracted to dirty areas. But…
- FACT: However, bed bugs ARE more prevalent in lower socioeconomic areas. A recent study sadly showed a correlation between getting bed bugs and being in poor communities. Whether it is from bringing in used clothing and furniture, or more people living in apartments where bed bugs come through walls, this is a sad fact.
- FACT: Bed bugs can live for a full year without a meal (human blood unfortunately… which means the next time you travel to a hotel after coronavirus lockdowns end, bed bugs are going to be starving and even aggressive!)
