And The History of How We Get Bed Bugs

Bed bugs live in areas where humans sleep or inhabit. They have infested homes and buildings all over the world including every area in the Unites States. Although hotels and motels are quite often the target of how these hitchhikers move from place to place, the places that bed bugs have been found can be quite extensive. We often hear questions about where these bugs come from. Below is a list of the places we have found bedbug infestations and locations you may be able to check off your list.

  • Office Buildings

  • Fire Halls & Stations
  • Nursing Homes
  • Child Care and Day Care Facilities
  • Schools
  • Local Police Stations
  • State Agency Buildings
  • Prisons and Jails
  • Theaters
  • Family Member Homes
  • Hotels

History on Where They Came From:

Bed bugs have been around for centuries. During the second world war they ravaged troops and towns and the introduction of DDT was used on a large scale which seemed to eradicate the species completely. During the 1970’s, DDT was banned from use due to the adverse health effects it had on people and the environment. Although alternatives were used, bed bugs developed resistance to certain chemicals. Invariably these pests have made a resurgence, and it doesn’t look as though that is going to change.

What’s The Overall Plan For These Bugs?

Unfortunately, bed bugs are thriving and each year we are seeing an increase in infestations in homes and buildings where people inhabit. There doesn’t seem to be an overall plan by governments or officials in eradicating and homeowners, facilities and everyone has been left to fend for themselves.
