Do you have bed bugs in Chattanooga or the suburbs of Ridgeside, Tyner, and East Ridge? Bed bugs are nighttime insects that feed on human and animal blood. Bed bugs are not known to transmit diseases, but they are a serious nuisance. Bed bugs can produce three or more generations each year. Females lay hundreds of eggs over their lifetime. Young bedbugs, known as nymphs, shed their skin five times as they grow toward maturity. Before each shedding, they must feed.

Bed bugs can live nearly anywhere in the home. They are most often found in box springs and mattresses, as the name suggests. However, they can also dwell in bedding, upholstered furniture, picture frames, electrical outlets, and wallpaper. Bed bugs may even live in cars, trains, and buses. Suitcases and backpacks may house bed bugs as well and can carry them easily from one place to another. The bed bug’s primary consideration is finding a reliable food source.

Bed bugs take five to ten minutes to feed. Therefore, they often prefer to do so when the sun is down, and people are sleeping. After feeding, the bed bug will retreat to a secluded area for roughly five to ten days as it digests its meal. Bed bugs prefer to feed on humans and will seek out inhabited areas over rural ones. They can feed on other warm-blooded creatures but prefer not to.
