How Did I Get a Bed Bug Infestation in Georgia?
Bed bugs are capable of hiding in bedding, furniture, behind wall hangings and baseboards, and many other locations, with the ability to easily travel across different locations regardless of cleanliness.
While not always highly visible, bed bugs could be present in your Georgia hotel room, home, furniture rental outlet, or apartment. They can also go without a meal for a long period of time, until a new victim arrives.
Bed bugs also multiply quickly, as females are capable of laying up to 500 eggs in a single lifetime. Their ability to spread at such a fast rate can result in an infestation before tenants, guests, or others have a chance to notice them.
Are Bed Bugs Capable of Spreading Illnesses?
Like other pests such as ticks, bed bugs are potential carriers of many different diseases. If a bed bug is a carrier of an infectious disease, the bite could cause mild to severe illness depending on treatment.
