According to a study done by the U.S. Center for Disease Control, at least 80 people have gotten sick trying to treat pests themselves with over-the-counter chemicals over the last three years. One woman even died after using 18 cans of bug spray in her home without having proper ventilation. People have not only gotten sick by trying to treat bed bugs themselves, but some have even damaged their homes doing so with things like rubbing alcohol to treat pests. People have even unintentionally started fires in their homes caused by various over-the-counter treatments for bed bug removal.
Bed bugs are tiny insects that feed on the blood of humans and animals. Adult bed bugs are reddish brown in color and are 5-7 mm in length. Bed bugs can be found anywhere, but most commonly in areas where people sleep such as bedding, mattresses, and bed frames. Bed bugs can travel on people, suitcases, clothing, and any other portable item. Because of this, bed bugs have even been found in upscale hotels. Bed Bugs are most active at night and bite any exposed areas of the skin. A person may not feel the bite as it is happening but will notice a red bump and experience itching anywhere from a few minutes to days later.
