Exterminating bed bugs isn't easy or quick, but if you have facts (not folklore) you can eradicate them from your home.

Bed bugs feed from 3 to 15 minutes. They cannot bite you when you are moving. They cannot fly or jump and do not have wings.

Bed bugs can bite in the day or night, dark or light, and are vulnerable to temperatures above 115°F.

It is believed that bed bugs evolved from bat bugs, when humans started living in caves.

Bed bugs need their food source to be still when they feed. If you move it disturbs them and they begin again in a new location.
