Bed Bugs in Phoenix

Phoenix Bed Bug Infestations

The resurgence of bed bugs has prompted many localities, including Phoenix, AZ, to draft legislation that aids in the management of these pests. Their increased presence can be attributed to travel, the worldwide shipping of products, local movement of infested items, and a growing resistance or tolerance to insecticides used for bed bug control. Bed bug infestations carry a negative social stigma, as many people believe they affect only dirty households. However, these pests can gain entry to any home, even clean ones, via secondhand furniture, clothing, and luggage.

Bed bugs in Phoenix homes are generally located in or near parts of the house where people sleep or rest. Some of the more commonly infested items include mattresses, box springs, headboards, and footboards. Adult bed bugs are reddish-brown, flat, and roughly the size of an apple seed. These nocturnal pests inject an anesthetic into peoples' skin so they can feed on sleeping victims without disturbing them. In order to satiate themselves, they feed on people for up to 15 minutes, becoming elongated with their blood meal. Perhaps the only comforting fact about them is that bed bug infestations are not currently known to spread or cause diseases. However, there are some rarely reported instances of people being affected by true allergic reactions caused by bed bug bites.
