    > Battling Bed Bugs - What Do I Do

    You may have heard that bed bugs are becoming an epidemic in the Chicago area and it’s true that they are a fast growing problem. So you many wonder what you can do to protect yourself. The answer is to become educated in bed bug habits and biology using reliable, authentic sources. Awareness can help you avoid an infestation. According to the National Pesticide Information Center (2013)

    By nature, bed bugs are stow-a-ways. They enter homes or apartments by hiding out in the cracks and crevices of luggage, furniture, clothing, pillows, boxes and other objects when they are moved between apartments, homes and hotels. Bed bugs hide during the day and typically feed at night. Since bed bugs feed on blood, their presence has little to do with the cleanliness of the home, although clutter can provide hiding spaces for bed bugs and make them difficult to treat. Bed bugs can survive for months without feeding, so they may be present in vacant, clean homes when new tenants unpack. Once bed bugs are established, they rapidly reproduce and spread from room to room. Bed bugs can be very difficult to control, even for trained professionals.
