Bed Bugs - From the Bed and Beyond

What is a Bed Bug?
Bed Bugs are small, brownish blood-sucking
bug which usually feeds on human blood,
mostly at night.
They exist for more than 3,300 years and are
found everywhere, including hotels, schools,
offices, residencies and even public
transportations.
Bed bug bites can result in skin rashes, allergic
symptoms and psychological effects as well.
The worst part is that identifying bed bug
bites is hard as they are usually confused with
bites from another pest, making it difficult to
detect bed bug infestation and opt for correct
bed bug pest control treatment.

90 species of bed bugs exists in the world. Luckily,
only three of them feed on humans and out of

Bug”, this is one of the most widespread
species across the globe. Being adapted to
temperate climates, they usually feed on
humans.
