The Masked Hunter adult primarily eats Bed Bugs and is active at night. Sightings of Masked Hunters indoors are usually a result of a bed bug presence inside the home. To eliminate the Masked Hunter, its food source -bed bugs- must be removed. This process usually requires the help of a professional exterminator. In nature, Masked Hunters also eat roly polys (wood lice) and earwigs in the absence of their preferred food.

* MAP NOTES: The territorial heat map above showcases (in red) the states and territories of North America where the Masked Hunter may be found (but is not limited to). This sort of data is useful when attempting to see concentrations of particular species across the continent as well as revealing possible migratory patterns over a species' given lifespan. Some insects are naturally confined by environment, weather, mating habits, food resources and the like while others see widespread expansion across most, or all, of North America. States/Territories shown above are a general indicator of areas inhabited by the Masked Hunter. Insects generally go where they please, typically driven by diet, environmental changes, and / or mating habits.
