April 2, 2019
Mention the word “bed bug,” even in passing, and you’re likely to be met with a variety of responses, all of them negative. Some people are embarrassed by bed bugs, others completely grossed out.

When Killing Bed Bugs, It’s Best To Know Thine Enemy...
1. Bed bugs can live just about anywhere.
When most people read about or discuss bed bugs, it’s typically in the context of a gross hotel room or unfortunate Airbnb experience. However, bed bugs can and will live in many different types of dwellings, including single-family homes, apartments, hospitals, college dorm rooms, office buildings, schools, buses, trains, movie theaters, laundromats, retail stores, and just about anywhere else that they have the chance of a good meal (i.e. human blood).
2. Bed bugs aren’t only an urban problem.
Bed bugs also have the reputation of being a “hygienic” issue that’s most common in crowded urban areas. Not true! Contrary to popular belief, bed bugs are found in all 50 states and in cities both large and small.
In fact, a “Bed Bugs in America" survey found that 17 percent of those surveyed reported having bed bugs in the Northeast; 20 percent in the Midwest; 20 percent in the South; and 19 percent in the West. Even people who live in the country can find themselves with a bed bug issue, as these little pests love to hitch rides on luggage and the bodies of our pets.
3. Bed bugs are survivors.
Like cockroaches, that other bug that terrifies most people, bed bugs can go for up to a year without eating. Even if they’re unable to find a human host to feed upon for several months, the average adult bed bug will find a way to go on living. This also means that bed bugs are very hard to kill. When threatened, they can burrow down in furniture, clothing, walls, and suitcases until a human happens to cross their paths again.
4. Bed bugs aren’t dumb.
Yeah, they’re gross little bugs who exist to eat, poop, and make babies, but bed bugs certainly aren’t dumb. “As a survival instinct, bed bugs are elusive. They know to stay out of view during the daytime, hiding in mattress crevices, box springs, baseboards, behind electrical switch plates, in picture frames, and even behind wallpaper,” explains Pestworld. If you think killing bed bugs is going to be like swatting house ants with a newspaper, you’ve got another thing coming.
5. Bed bugs are methodical.
Unlike other bugs, which scatter around grabbing food wherever they can find it, bed bugs are very strategic in how they choose to feed. It only takes a bed bug between 5 and 10 minutes to fill its belly, and it will often return to the same spot to bite its host. If you’ve noticed bed bug bites in a row or pattern, you’re seeing signs that the bug returned to you to grab its “breakfast, lunch, and dinner.”
6. Bed bugs are master anesthesiologists.
One thing we’re often asked by Bed Bug Store customers is “Why didn’t I wake up when the bed bug bit me?” The answer can be found in the bed bug’s incredible talent for administering anesthetic. “Components in bed bug saliva act as an anesthetic and promote increased blood flow at the bite site, making the feeding process quick and nearly painless,” explains Pestworld.
7. Bonus Fact!
It doesn’t have to be hard to get bed bugs out of your home. It’s true that we promised six-bed bug facts, but we’re going to give you one more!

What are people saying about Bed Bug Patrol?
★ ★ ★ ★ ★
"I had a chance to use this a couple of days ago. I had been sick and had not kept up on my spraying every couple of days to keep them away. I previously used a different brand. When I check, there they were again! I used this and after 3 days they are still gone! It works, smells good, and the pump actually works (it doesn't on other ones I've bought). The booklet they included with the purchase was very informative and helpful as well. I highly recommend this product."

“Naturally I freaked out when I found bed bugs. I called two exterminators, received estimates of $1,700-$2,650 which I would have paid until I started researching other methods and saw the reviews on this product. Vacuumed thoroughly, sprayed as directed, encased box spring and mattress. Repeated vacuum and spray a week later. So far so good!!"
