We all know the stigma attached to having bed bugs in a mattress, but times have moved on. Bed bugs can appear in any home, and aren’t an indication that a home is unclean. They hitchhike on the clothing of visitors, in luggage and generally find a way into the home. Once inside, they burrow into furniture, especially bedding, becoming a nuisance way out of scale to their size. They bite, feed on blood and leave welts on the skin.
