Did you know it is Bed Bug Awareness Week? Probably not! No one throws a parade to celebrate bed bugs or even bed bug extermination. However, if you have had bed bugs and have gotten rid of them, you would feel like celebrating for sure!
For most people who discover bed bugs, the immediate reaction is panic, distress, and shock. No one expects to find bed bugs. Most people think it must be some other type of bug, but certainly NOT a bed bug. This is because there are several misconceptions surrounding bed bugs.
First, most people feel that bed bugs directly relate to the cleanliness of the living space. In our experience, most of the homes we treat are very clean. Bed bugs do not discriminate where they live. If there is a live body producing carbon dioxide, that is a perfect home. Now, the more cluttered an area is, the more hiding spaces there are for the bed bugs to hide, making detection and treatment more difficult.
Secondly, people feel that if they live in the country or nice neighborhood, they will be exempt from harboring a bed bug infestation. Again, the bugs do not care where they live. It is true that bugs may spread more quickly in a heavily populated apartment complex. However, the bugs will hitch a ride wherever they find you and make their home with you.
