There are many myths surrounding bed bugs, but the truth is that they are
in all 50 states and can infest all different types of homes.
These pests can live in both sanitary and unsanitary conditions, and can
withstand very cold and very warm temperatures. However, bed bug infestations
are much less likely to occur if you take steps to prevent the pests from
entering your home in the first place.
To prevent bed bug infestations, never bring mattresses or upholstered
furniture you find on the street into your home. If you purchase secondhand
furniture, check it for signs of bed bugs before you bring it inside.
If bed bugs do get into your home, call a pest control company right away
to schedule bed bug elimination services.
