What did bed bugs ever do to the inhabitants of Richmond Hill and the rest of the world to earn such an unsettling moniker? These bothersome creatures are exactly what it says on the tin; they lurk deep within the linens and fibers of your furniture, breeding uncontrollably until the infestation becomes incredibly difficult to stop. But is this even a big deal? Every house has its fair share of insects, so why should we care so much about bed bugs in particular? The thing to remember about bed bugs is that they aren’t like ants and roaches, scavenging on the scraps of food they find about the house. Rather, bed bugs depend on you for sustenance. To be more specific, they feed on your blood as mosquitoes and ticks do.
