So How Do You Get Bed Bugs?
If it has nothing to do with cleanliness then where do they come from? Well, unfortunately you really can get them from anywhere.
These little guys love hiding in the smallest of cracks and crevices and only come out during the night to feed. What’s worse is that they have evolved and developed the ability to sense when you are at your deepest sleep based on your breathing patters, which makes spotting them even more difficult.
Because of their love of small dark places, people often can go weeks or even months without even knowing they have a problem and by that time a few of them may have traveled on their clothes or briefcase and found a new home somewhere else. If you think you may have been bitten, call us and we will have a home inspector out the same day to check it out. We know what to look for.
