Bed Bug Characteristics
Bed bugs are small, elusive parasitic insects which feed by biting warm-blooded hosts and sucking blood. They are normally found in beds and other areas where people sleep. Bed bugs multiply fast and travel easily from room to room or location to location.
When they feed on their hosts leave little bite marks. These bites can cause skin irritations and be the result of various skin allergies or irritation. Bed bug problems tend to be more prevalent in areas where higher population densities exist. As a result, many Brampton residents are experiencing bed bug problems.
