There’s a product that safely kills and prevents bed bugs and gives us all peace of mind, Stop Bugging Me!
Traveling is something we often do and for the past year I have been a super inspector seeking bed bugs. To be honest, I don’t really know what I”m looking for, but if it is moving, I’m squashing it! Here’s some insight on these bugs that are making news.
About Bed Bugs: (From the Stop Bugging Me Website)
Bed bugs, derived from their preference for living in areas people like to sleep. They are about 1/4 of an inch long, flat and oval in shape.
Brown in color, they transform from dark red or black and become engorged after feeding.
They are attracted to warmth, blood and carbon dioxide making humans (not pets) their preferred feeding choice.
Their eggs look like white rice before they hatch.
These parasitic insects feed on human blood and while they can survive up to a year without it, they prefer to feed every five to ten days.
The main indication of bed bug bites is persistent itching and skin rashes. They are small, flat or raised bumps on the skin.
Their saliva has anesthetics in it so the host cannot feel the bite as it contains proteins that can cause a potentially dangerous allergic reaction.
Bed bugs do not transmit disease and are not related to sanitation – the cleanest homes can have them.
They do not jump or fly, but because bed bugs are so small and thin, they can hide in very narrow cracks, and move quickly over walls, floors and furniture to spread basically anywhere.
While I am under the belief that our home does not have bed bugs, I’m intent on keeping it this way. If I can do my part to prevent and keep bed bugs from reaching our home, I’m all about it.

Still not convinced bed bugs are pervasive? The National Pest Management Association (NPMA) and the University of Kentucky conducted a survey, 2011 Bugs Without Borders Survey, that reported that that bed bug infestations have increased and are now being found just about everywhere. The study, which surveyed U.S. pest management professionals, found that bed bug infestations are increasing in truly revolting ways in the last year:
College dorms: 54% compared with 35% the year before
Hotels: 80% compared with 67% from 2010
Schools and day cares: 26%, up from 10%
