WHAT ARE BEDBUGS?
Bedbugs are small, flat, oval, reddish-brown insects that feed on the blood of humans or other animals. Bedbugs can move quickly over floors, walls, ceilings and other surfaces, but are incapable of flight. Female bedbugs may lay hundreds of eggs over the course of a lifetime. Under favorable conditions bedbugs can develop fully into mature, reproductive adults in as little as a month and produce multiple generations per year.
Because bedbugs feed exclusively on blood meals, having them in your home or property is not caused by substandard sanitation. Once a population is established, however, sanitation practices can indeed impact how quickly a bedbug infestation may get resolved.
WHERE DO BEDBUGS LIVE?
BEDBUG HIDE AND SEEK
Bedbugs are notorious hitchhikers, commonly entering your home unnoticed inside luggage, on clothing, or within furniture such as beds, mattresses and sofas. Their small, flat bodies allow them to fit into tiny gaps or cracks not much wider than the width of a pice of paper. Although bedbugs do tend to live or congregate in groups, they actually do not have nests or colonies like ants, termites or bees.
Upon introduction into an environment, bedbugs initially establish themselves in close proximity to sleeping quarters such as beds where they have easy access to feed on people through the night. As the populations expands, however, bedbugs will begin to spread throughout other areas of the structure.
ARE BEDBUG BITES DANGEROUS?
Bedbugs feed primarily at night by piercing the skin and withdrawing blood for up to 10 minutes through an elongated proboscis. Although people react differently to bedbug bites, most bites are painless at first and sometimes later turn into itchy welts.
Bed bugs are not known to spread disease, but can be an annoyance because their presence may cause excessive itching and scratching that might sometimes increase the chance of an allergic reaction or secondary skin infection. Although uncommon, severe allergic reactions to multiple bedbug bites might require medical intervention.

RAPID BEDBUG ELIMINATION
HEAT KILLS ALL BEDBUG STAGES
With conventional bed bug treatment measures, total eradication relies heavily upon getting the treatment to all areas where bed bugs may be hiding. As soon as pesticides are introduced, bed bugs will begin seeking safe harborage, usually in tight cracks or crevices or inside furniture, so as to not come in contact with a lethal dose. Missing even one bed bug could allow the bed bug populations to regenerate following treatment.
With Bug Off's bed bug heat treatment, the entire treatment zone is brought to temperatures above 120 degrees, with no place for bed bugs to safely retreat. So while bed bugs can run from a chemical treatment, they can't hide from the bed bug heat treatment.
