People Call Them Bed Bugs

People call them bed bugs. The name makes people think they only infest beds.

However, we see bed bugs everywhere. Of course, we see them most often in beds, couches, and chairs. These are places we sit or lay still which allows the bugs time to feed. We also see them in unusual places around the home like bathrooms, kitchens, garages, outside on the front porch, and climbing up exterior walls. They won’t live long outside because other insects will eat them.

So, how do they get in my bed? They don’t just appear one day! These bugs hitch hike or walk through the unusual places in search of a host (You and your family). Remember they are an insect that needs to feed to survive.

It’s interesting how many people discover bed bugs in their home and say “I know where they came from”. In reality the introduction of a bed bug could have come from anywhere. They are hitchhikers, so you may have picked one up while you were out in public. They are often found in cars, buses, airplanes, restaurants, schools, doctors offices, hospitals, day care centers, your work, summer camps, and hotels. Maybe someone brought one to you when they visited. It’s hard to say.

Regardless, be aware that they are everywhere— especially in Dayton, Cincinnati and Middletown. If you see bed bugs call TRS Extermination 513-604-6332. We offer emergency bed bug extermination services, free bug identification, and general pest control.
