Creepiest Crawlers in Your Home

Nighttime Nuisances

Nighttime Nuisances

What: Bed Bugs
Where: Crevices of box springs, mattresses and headboards. Most commonly found in hotels, apartment complexes and dormitories, but can be found in offices and homes.
Telltale Sign: Three bites in a straight line or a cluster, often called “breakfast, lunch and dinner”
Health Risks: Bed bugs inject an anesthetic into your skin to feast on your blood. While some don’t have a reaction to the bites, others get extremely itchy, red bumps; blisters; or hives.
