Phylum: Arthropoda
Class: Insecta
Order: Hemiptera
Suborder: Heteroptera
Infraorder: Cimicomorpha
Superfamily: Cimiciodea
Family: Cimicidae

Habitat:
Bed bugs shelter in a variety of dark locations, mostly close to where people sleep. This includes under mattresses, floorboards, carpets, behind paintings, skirting, in various cracks and crevices of walls, within bed frames and other furniture, and behind loose wallpaper. Bed bugs tend to stay in close contact with each other and heavy infestations are accompanied by a distinctive sweet sickly smell.

Food:
Bed bugs are obligatory hematophagous (bloodsucking) insects. Most species feed on humans only when other prey is unavailable. Bed bugs are attracted to their hosts primarily by carbon dioxide, secondarily by warmth, and also by certain chemicals. Although bed bugs can live for a year without feeding, they normally try to feed every five to ten days.

Method of Travel:

Crawling

Prevention:
1. Be aware that bed bugs and eggs can “hitchhiked in” on pets, on clothing and luggage, as well as people visiting from a source of infestation. Bed bugs, like roaches, are transferred by clothing, luggage, or a person’s body.
2. Check items, such as furniture or clothing, before bringing into your home.

Steps to control:
1. Control is achieved by thoroughly cleaning bed cloths, mattresses, and pillows.
2. Good, long lasting, low-toxic methods of insect control can be done with Knock Down Bed Bug Insect Killer or other Knock Down products listed below.
