Bed bugs are an increasing infestation in many cities across the world. Their numbers have been on the rise for the past decade, after having gone essentially unheard of in the developed world throughout the 21st century. The reasons for this has been debated back and forth, from bans on pesticides and increased tolerance of the bugs, to foreign travel and the popularity of second hand items. Regardless of the reason, the fact remains that they are a presence that must be dealt with in many metropolitan areas across the globe.
They spread easily and rapidly. They can be introduced to a new place through a number of different means. Mattresses, as their name would suggest, are often a host for bed bugs. They have easy access to their nutrient source this way. They are able to borough into wood however, making wooden furniture a potential host.
