Pest Control  |  Bed Bugs

During the 1950’s, around half of the United States had a bed bug problem. Over the next couple of decades, their population decreased to a point of almost non-existence. Bed bugs were reintroduced to the U.S. in the year 2000, and have been a worldwide epidemic to this day.


Here are three common questions we hear frequently:


Q. Can bed bugs spread disease?

A. No. At this point in time, there is no scientific documentation of this happening.


Q. How do bed bugs find us to feed?

A. Bed bugs find their host by the CO2 exhaled during respiration, thermal body heat and host Kairomones/Pheromones.
