Where do bed bugs come from?
Bed bugs can come from many ordinary, everyday places. Perhaps that sofa you picked up on craigslist or the hotel you stayed at last month.

These little guys are so small they can literally live inside the cracks of a wooden clothes hanger! An entire bed bug outbreak can start with just two or three bed bugs that hitched a ride on your suitcase from your last vacation.
Why are bed bugs more prominent than ever in the US?
It is true that bed bugs were once almost completely wiped out in the 1940’s. The widespread use of dichlorodiphenyltrichloroethane (DDT for short). Once DDT was banned for a plethora of reasons, the bed bug population started to make a slow, but steady recovery. With the increase of global travel in the late 21st century, bed bugs have had much more opportunity to find their way into new homes.
