Bedbugs are small, flat, reddish-brown insects that feed on the blood of humans and animals.
Bedbugs are typically active at night and feed on their hosts while they sleep.
Bedbugs are not known to transmit diseases, but their bites can cause itching, swelling, and other skin irritations.
In addition to homes, bedbugs can also be found in hotels, dormitories, and other public places where people sleep.
Bedbug infestations can be difficult to control, as the bugs can multiply quickly and are resistant to many insecticides.
Treatment typically involves a combination of insecticides and thorough cleaning, including washing and drying infested clothing and bedding at high temperatures.
Bedbugs are like the mafia. Once they move into a place, it’s hard to get rid of them!
