Bedbug bites 101

Like fleas, bedbugs also survive on blood. They are small, reddish brown, and oval shaped. You may not see them during the day because they hide in dark places. They tend to bite people when they’re sleeping. This is because they’re attracted to your body heat and the carbon dioxide produced when you exhale.

Bedbugs like to hide in:

  • Mattresses
  • Bed frames
  • Box springs
  • Carpets

Bedbugs are often found in facilities with heavy use, such as hotels and hospitals. They can also be found in homes and apartments.
