Bed Bugs Better Know as a Plague
The bed bug is a temporary ectoparasite. “Parasite” means that it lives by leeching nutrients (blood) from another organism; you or, occasionally, birds or bats or house pets. Ecto- means “on the outside,” so it lives outside of its host’s body. Temporary means that bed bugs don’t live on their host, instead only dropping in to feed.
Bed bugs are also called obligate parasites because to make it through each step of their five-stage lifecycle, they require a blood meal. Female bed bugs also must have a blood meal before they are able to lay eggs; the more blood they eat, the more eggs they can make. They can lay anywhere from 100-500 within their lifetime and MULTIPLY LIKE RATS.
When bed bugs aren’t feeding, they’re hiding in tight spaces and breeding. Anywhere from mattress seams to head boards to any available crack—the head of a screw, a picture frame, or even a clock radio. They also enjoy a nice suitcase or purse, which is how they spread between homes, hotels, and virtually any other place where people hang out.
Today, bed bugs are in every state in the US and the percent of American exterminators that have treated them are on the rise; 99 percent in 2013 (+4 percent), up from 95 percent in 2010 (+70 percent), 25 percent a decade before (+14 percent), and 11 percent before that.
