Bed Bugs

Bed bugs are a nuisance but not a health risk for spreading disease. Bed bug bites occur at night and may result in red, swollen, itchy welts. To eliminate bed bugs, hiring a licensed pest control operator is recommended. Take precautions when using insecticides as they can contain harmful chemicals or move the bed bugs to more difficult-to-reach places. Learn more about how to eliminate bed bugs from the EPA.
