Bed Bugs are fast becoming an epidemic around the world. If that's not scary enough to envision, here are some creepy fun facts you need to know.
1. One Bed Bug Can Produce an Excess of 500 Eggs!
Just one tiny bed bug can lay 1-5 eggs per day, and that amount continues to grow as they survive. The bed bug is approximately the size of two grains of salt. If there is a chance you think you saw one, you need to spray everywhere and destroy them at once! You don't want to be naive and think "It's ok, it's just one." One is enough.
2. The World Has 92 Different Bed Bug Species
The happy news here is that only one species consumes human blood. Cimex lectularius is the bed bug that appreciates us for their primo food source. Since they can't navigate through dog or cat hair, they will pretend they are climbing Mount Everest, to feed off us. The bed bug might be tiny, but it can eat up to 7 times their own weight which equals an average man absorbing 120 GALLONS of liquid.
3. Can You Survive a Year Without Eating?
A bed bug can live without food for one whole year. This is why we don't encourage people to "wait it out" because that's a long time to be itching, scratching and losing sleep.
I'm sure you are sitting there reading asking, "how can I get rid of my bed bugs and not go broke?"
