Yes. They don’t necessary live in your mattress, but sometimes in your bed frame.

Yep. Those little f***ers are disgusting and will go anywhere no matter what.

Its funny because I just asked a question about this an hour or so ago.

These nasty cirtters seem to be EVERYWHERE these days… They’ve been constantly on the news the past month or longer.

I just heard a college here in Atlanta has them.. They better STAY AWAY from my home.

I had a neighbor in FL that had them and I had slept over 2 nights in a row and they REALLY got a hold of me. I had lines of bites all over my neck/back/legs/and stomach.

You can really tell their bites apart from anything else because they bite in rows of 3 or more. GROSS!!!!!

They can get on anything. You place may be clean,but they will return if they are still in the building

Oh, poor dear, if you’ve treated the place then don’t worry about it and just get some rest. If the little buggies come back then just treat it all over again until they’re all gone. People get them and people get rid of them with diligence, so just clean up, spray and make sure to throw trash out, and then relax and don’t fret.

They thrive on dried semen and on dead skin cells. TRUE !
And they suck your blood out as they bite into your ankles.

You need to keep on treating as the eggs hatch and mature.. Yes they can climb on.
Use boric acid and sticky traps around your bed and be careful what you bring in on your clothes.

Has anyone ever seen a bed bug ? This may sound a stupid question but they are so small that only with a strong magnifying glass can they even be spotted. I can think of much bigger ones on 2 legs that can be far more dangerous . We have all lived with these little buggers for decades and have anyone ever even hospitalised by them. ?
In fact I would bet my last bottom dollar they can even be found in some beds there in hospitals also

Old song;
butterfly he wings of gold
Firefly wings of flame
Bedbug got no wings at all but he gets there just the same.

They can get into anything.

Michael Y clearly has never seen or experienced bed bugs.Bed bugs can grow to the size of an apple pip, and can be clearly seen whatever their size.A bed bug can live without a blood meal for a year, which is the bad news. They hide anywhere,but usually congregate together if you have a large infestation.If you want to treat them naturally without foggers or toxic insecticides you could use Diatomaceous Earth,which is natural and isn’t harmful to kids or pets. Sprinkle the earth around on carpets and furniture and leave for a a day or two, then hoover up.Reapply a few days later and hoover again.You could even make a force field of it around the bed! It contains small fibres that is like crossing shards of glass for the bugs, it also dehydrates them and then they die (hooray!).They sell it on Ebay if you need it!
