What is the first thing you think of when you hear the words "bed bug exterminations", do you think about the relief a bed bug service can provide, do you think of the embarrassment of having a bed bug infestation in the first place? Maybe you have no reaction at all. The reality is that a bed bug infestations can happen to anyone, unfortunately we know about the negative stigma associated with bed bugs. While some people think a bed bug infestation is linked to sanitary conditions, the truth is bed bugs seek a blood meal and nothing more.

Bed bugs are a hitchhiking bug. They get in our belongings and they get in our clothes when we are away from home, and they hitch a ride home with us when we return.
Bed bugs aren't only in hotels and motels. They can be picked up in taxis, buses, trains, planes, and other forms of public transportation. They can be picked up in movie theaters, libraries, and other public places as well.
Bed bugs are not attracted to filth, they are attracted to blood, and they can be found in the nicest, 5-star luxury hotels.
You can get bed bugs from spending the night at a friend's or relative's house.
You can get bed bugs if your kids do a sleep over.
