How do you get bed bug bites?


Bed bugs bite you when you're sleeping to feed on your blood. They usually bite a few times per feeding, and feed for about 10 minutes before returning to their hiding place. Bed bugs can live for several months without feeding, but they must feed to molt or reproduce.

Bed bugs cannot jump or fly; they have to crawl to reach you in your bed. With this in mind, an effective way to stop the biting is to elevate your bed with ClimbUp Interceptors, which will prevent the bugs from crawling up the legs of your bed frame. You should also encase your mattress and box spring in sealed covers, to prevent bites from any bed bugs that are hiding in your bed.
