Goodnight, Sleep Tight And Don’t Let The Bed Bugs Bite

It’s a cute saying we say to our kids – we say it in our house – but like many cute sayings it has real meaning behind it. (Think Ring Around The Rosy.)

In reality, bed bugs are NOT cute. They are creepy, little, blood-sucking bugs. Ick! Like most bugs, no one wants them in their house. But the truth is, bugs happen. And like other bug infestations, they are not easy to get rid of once they make your bed their home. Here are some bed bug facts:

  • Adult bed bugs are about the size of an apple seed
  • 15 minutes in the dryer on high will kill bed bugs
  • While most bed bugs live in your bed, they can also be found in other upholstery, carpet, baseboards and furniture
  • You can bring bed bugs home from a hotel
  • Anyone can get bed bugs, not just dirty hotels
  • Bed bugs are on the rise

Alright, so they are creepy to talk about (and even creepier to look at close up in pictures), but it is good to know that if you ever have a problem it isn’t forever. You can get rid of the icky bugs. Below you will find a lot more info about bed bugs, how to prevent them and (if need be) how to treat them with Ortho Home Defense Max BEDBUG Killer. (Fair warning, the photos are of icky bugs, but the videos are safe.)

A growing pest problem, bed bugs are creepy, crawly and hard to kill.
