How-to-Avoid-Detect-and-Defeat-the-BedBug
Posted by USBedBugs on 4/12/2011 to News
Here is a great article from Time Magazine that will answer your questions on how to avoid, detect and defeat bed bugs. The article is an interview with Jeffery Eisenberg, the author of The Bed Bug Survival Guide who is championing the fight against the blood sucking pests.  Eisenberg is predicting the bed bug problem to become even worse this summer. Jeff shares his best strategies, advice and tips for treating and preventing bed bug infestation once and for all.
 
If you spot an insect, how can you tell it's a bedbug?
People get bites for months and never see them, because they're very small. Bedbugs go through five stages before they become adults, and in the first three or four stages you will not see them with the naked eye. Now, on top of that, even the ones you can see, they spend 99% of their time in cracks and crevices. They only come out for three to five minutes at a time to feed on you every seven to 14 days. And they come out, usually, between 2 and 5 o'clock in the morning. So people are literally going crazy waking themselves up each night every 20 minutes, trying to see if they can spot one in the act.

How widespread is the problem?
It's clearly international. [American] cities that had no reported problems, or almost no problems, even four or five years ago, like Philadelphia, today it's gangbusters. People thought it was just a city problem, an urban situation, but it's so not true. The suburbs are probably the fastest-growing population of bedbug problems today, more than even the cities.
