Frisco Bed Bug Treatment

Over the last ten years, bed bugs have made an alarming comeback in the United States. Once a relatively rare pest, bed bugs are being consistently reported in hotels, private domiciles, dorm rooms, schools, and everywhere else that people congregate. Scientists aren't sure yet where to put the blame for this resurgence, but common theories include increased immigration and changes to modern pest control insecticides.

The Bed Bug

Bed bugs are small, oval-shaped insects that feast on the blood of other animals. These pests prefer to feed on human beings, though they are more than happy to accept other warm-blooded animals in their stead, including dogs, rats, and birds. Because of their shape and size, these insects are often mistaken for ticks, cockroaches, and fleas.
