Bed Bugs

Bedbugs are very small, reddish brown/dark brown insects that live on blood. Their eggs are very small (about 1mm or less than a 1/16") and the bugs vary from 1.5mm (1/16") to 4.5mm (less than 1/4").

Because they are so small, they can hide between a mattress and box springs, between the mattress and bed frame, in carpets under furniture, and other tiny spaces. They only come out to feed, which makes it difficult to know you have an infestation. Many people don't know until someone reacts to bed bug bites or they notice that sheets and mattress have new, small, blackish colored spots.

According to WebMD, bed bugs don't carry disease. But they are irritating and many people find them disgusting or gross.

The EPA ( provides some ideas for controlling bed bugs.  But doing it yourself is a lot of work (including a lot of research), takes time, and a lot of patience!  Many people waste a lot of time trying to control them, but finally give up and call a professional.
