Bed Bug Bites and Going to Work
Bed bugs and infestations of bed bugs are more than just a nuisance. They can be a safety and health hazard for anyone who has the misfortune of having to deal with them. The bed bugs will bite and ingest the blood of a willing human host, and will continue to bite you every night that they can get away with it. Most people experience bed bugs in the bedroom, as they have a sleeping host just waiting to be bitten. But if you have bed bugs, they are all over the house, such as in the couch, in the other areas of the home, and wait to bite someone there too (just that the bed is the most convenient place for bed bugs, all things considered). Just because you have bed bugs in your home, it does not mean that you are by any means “dirty” or an untidy housekeeper. That is because it is surprisingly easy to catch bed bugs, and most often through no fault of your own.
Bed bugs like to hide and burrow deep down into public transportation seats, such as on a subway, in an Uber car or even in a taxi transportation vehicle. You can put your bag on a counter in an office, urgent care facility, or at the deli, and find that there were bed bugs that get stuck onto the bag from someone else who had bed bugs in that area first. That is why it is often not your fault at all that bed bugs have infested your home.
Getting Infestations of Bed Bugs After a Trip Are Highly Common Occurrences
If you have gone on a trip lately, or even not in the last year, you may have picked up bed bugs from staying in residences, motels, hotels or hostels from your travels. Just so that you know, bed bugs actually go through several developmental stages, from young stages as nymphs to teen years and then adults that require blood meals to survive.
The bad news, and this is extremely bad for everyone, is that an older nymph or an adult bed bug can survive up to a year without a blood meal! Those bed bugs will hop, skip and jump into luggage, on clothing, on shoes or even a pant leg, into a bag, a book or on a hat to get out of their current situation to find a more favorable condition. Typically, bed bugs live for 2 to 4 months or so, and it is not unusual that you will be worried about taking them to work with you if you have an infestation at home.
