Bed Bug Information in the Evansville, Henderson or the Mt. Vernon Area
Bed Bugs (Cimexlectularius) are small, wingless insects exhibiting all of the characteristics required to be considered a “true” bug. A persistent human parasite throughout recorded history, the widespread use of synthetic insecticides after World War II led to a sharp decline, and near total eradication, in bed bug populations in most industrialized countries. Almost non-existent in the United States by the early 1990s, the Bed Bug has proven very hardy with its sudden and profound resurgence. The cause of the Bed Bug return is widely debated. However, most experts agree that it’s a combination of factors. The ongoing discontinuance of insecticides by regulatory agencies has limited the availability and use of highly effective insecticidal products. Combined with the dramatic increase in global travel, Bed Bugs have been set to return in force.
It's Not Your Fault You Have Bed Bugs in the Evansville, Henderson or the Mt. Vernon area.
Contrary to popular belief, Bed Bugs are not caused by poor sanitation. Similar to other parasites such as lice and fleas, Bed Bugs are creatures of convenience. Infestations are more commonly associated with a chance encounter, introducing a breeding population into your living environment. You can bring Bed Bugs home by staying in a home, college dormitory, hotel or other similar facility that contains an infestation. The eggs can travel, to infest your home, by catching a ride on your suitcase or clothing but it’s much more common for the adults to do so.
