Central Florida Bed Bugs
For years, bed bugs have been a problem that many homes have had to deal with, and to date, they remain a major problem. They are not only difficult to detect, but they also have excellent hitchhiking skills that make them attach easily to people and find their way into their homes. Bed bugs attach to just about anything such as clothes, luggage, furniture, backpacks, etc. The more people move around and travel, the higher their chances of getting a bug attached to them and carrying the pest into their homes.

Knowing that you have bedbugs in your home starts from noticing bedbug bites all over your body. Bedbugs feed on blood, and they have to bite you to get their food. They inject chemicals into the body to keep the blood flowing and make you the host not feel the bite. The chemical is made up of an anesthetic and anticoagulant to prevent blood clotting. The anatomy of a bedbug is designed to feed on blood and hide in places where it will be difficult to discover them. Below are signs that you have a bedbug problem:
