Numbers of bed bugs are doubling each year in the US, UK & Europe. According to National Pest Management Association (which represents 7,000 pest control companies) revenues from bed bug extermination hit $258 million in 2009, up from $98 million in 2006. Industry officials expect 2011 revenues to close in on the one billion mark.
Bed bugs are extremely common, yet highly annoying parasitic pests that infest millions of beds. Since the bed bug reproduces so rapidly, is so tiny, and is capable of hiding deep within the material of beds and other furniture, it can be very difficult to eradicate an infestation completely.
Bed bugs seek harborage in cracks and crevices. Common harborages include: folds & creases in bed linens, seams, tufts, and under buttons on mattresses, etc. If you have bed bugs, your infestation can get worse very quickly since a female bed bug can lay up to five eggs per day, and up to around 500 eggs in her lifetime. Since it takes only five weeks for hatched nymphs to grow to maturity, your problems could expand exponentially within a relatively short period of time, and infestations can be hard to control.
