Bed Bugs: Basic Information

Bed Bugs are becoming more and more common in Tennessee. The common bed bug’s preferred host is humans — while the related species, bat bugs and bird bugs, prefer to feed on bats and birds, but will also feed on humans if the opportunity arises or the preferred host dies.

Infestations are usually detected by the welts and irritations caused by the bites and by the fecal smears and blood spots visible on pillowcases, sheets, and mattresses. Heavy infestations may even be accompanied by a distinct odor.

Are they Dangerous?

A bed bug bites affects people differently. Bite responses can range from no physical signs at all, to a small bite mark, to a serious allergic reaction. Bed bugs are not considered to be dangerous in and of themselves, but an allergic reaction to bed bug bites may need medical attention.
