When do Bed Bugs Bite
Bed bugs are a small, wingless insects that can range in size from a seed to a quarter inch. Their color is anywhere from white to red as the bug grows older. Bed bugs are like little vampires that feed only on one thing…the blood of human beings. They are something straight out of a horror movie, however, to the victim of bed bug bites they are very real and serious. The bed bug waits around until it senses the CO2 emissions and body heat of humans. Then usually between the human sleeping hours between 12 midnight and 5:00a.m. bed bugs attack humans by feeding on their blood. This results in marks anywhere you are bitten. Severe attacks result in horrific scars, infection and even hospitalization. A blood infection can develop which if untreated can become life threatening. The psychological damage cause by bug bites can have a lasting toll. The bites themselves may take days to appear and can fade within weeks. In some cases permanent scaring occurs.
Hotels, motels, college dormitories, apartment buildings and other public places provide safe havens for bed bugs. Bed bugs gravitate to places where people come and go on a frequent, ongoing basis. As such, most bet bug attacks seem to take place in hotel and similar properties. Property owners and managers must be diligent in keeping premises free of bed bugs or else risk patrons being bitten. It is all too common for hotels and other establishments to hide the fact that bed bugs have been found at their facilities.

This often leads to more occurrences of people getting bit by bed bugs at those same facilities.
