Studies have shown that they have been referenced in Egyptian Literature and archaeologists have found fossilized bed bugs dating back 3,500 years ago.

How Do You Get Bed Bugs?
Bed bugs are spreading like crazy and it looks like they are not planning on slowing down. Bed bug infestation reports are increasing in North America, Europe, Austrailia and many other parts of the world.
Bed bugs can travel in so many different ways that you will be shocked when I tell you exactly how the travel and how they spread so fast.
Bed Bug Transportation Routes
Many people who are now dealing with bed bugs always ask themselves “How Did I Get Bed Bugs?”
The first thing they do is retract their steps. Who did they come in contact with whether it is a family member or a friend.
Where have they traveled and what means of travel have they used. What places did they visit recently.
Did I purchase any second hand items such as clothing or furniture?
Have you asked any of these questions recently?
Most Common Routes Of Travel For Bed Bugs
- Taxi & Buses
- Second Hand Items
- Cardboard Boxes
- Electronic Devices
Bed bugs are masters of hitch hiking. They pretty much use the same means of transportation as we do. If you think about it, how many people use public transportation to get to work each day?
All it takes is one person to have bed bugs or eggs on their clothing and if you brush up against them then you will probably be dealing with bed bugs in the very near future.
Many times people who are moving may sell their furniture online or have garage sales to get rid of some items in their home.
People buy the furniture and items not knowing that these items are infested with bed bugs and well, now you bring them into your home.
Some people have such a huge bed bug infestation that they want to get rid of everything in their home and either set it on fire or throw them in the trash.
One of the most common questions asked is should I throw away my furniture?
Have People Died From Bed Bugs?
This is a very touchy situation when this question is asked because there are different views about this subject.
According to the CDC (Center For Diseases Control) bed bugs do not transmit any known diseases.
Bed bugs should not be considered as a medical or public health hazard. Bed bugs are not known to spread disease. Bed bugs can be an annoyance because their presence may cause itching and loss of sleep. Sometimes the itching can lead to excessive scratching that can sometimes increase the chance of a secondary skin infection. cdc.com
Mental Effects Of Bed Bugs Tell A Different Story
Although bed bugs don’t spread diseases, the mental and psychological effects they have on the people dealing with them are scary to say the least.
Many people have died because of the effects of bed bugs but not actually due to bed bug bites.
What do I mean by this?
Loss of Sleep Due to Bed Bugs Can Really Put Stress on Your Mind & Spirit.
People that have been dealing with bed bugs for a long time have mentally given up and have started making very bad decisions about getting rid of them.
Terrible decisions including using terrible pesticides causing infants and children to get very ill and even death.
People setting their furniture, cars on fire using Alcohol because they have had enough with bed bugs.
One man was charged for murdering his mom because she couldn’t get rid of bed bugs and wanted to end her pain.

Bed Bug Signs
No, we are not talking about signs that you would see on the highway “Bed Bug Hotel Keep Right!”
I’m talking about what are the red flags that you may have a potential bed bug infestation on your hands. One of the most obvious signs are bed bug bites.
Bed bugs usually feed in the early mornings just before sunrise. Most of the time you wont feel the bed bugs bites.
After 30 minutes of feeding your skin begins to turn red.
Then the victim will go through intense itching for the next 2-5 days. The bites will start to swell and possibly get infected causing terrible pain. People can also have allergic reactions
to bed bug bites which can cause blistering of the bites with increased pain and infection as time goes on.

What Do Bed Bugs Look Like?
Bed bugs have long, flat, oval bodies. They look sort of like reddish brown footballs that have 6 legs and 2 antennae on top of their head.
Adult bed bugs are about 5-7 mm (3/16-1/4 inch) long. They have very thin, vertically flattened bodies covered with short, golden, colored hairs.
Bed bugs turn red after feeding. Bed bug larvae look almost like white sesame seeds.
How To Get Rid Of Bed Bugs
Bed bugs are very difficult to get rid of to the point people actually give up and say there is no way to kill bed bugs.
The reason why bed bugs are so difficult to kill is because of the eggs. They reproduce so fast and lay eggs everywhere that is warm.
The eggs are also the most toughest to kill. Many times I hear people saying “I’ve used everything and the bed bugs keep coming back.”
That’s because they were not using the right bed bug killer!
