Bed Bugs (Cimex lectularius)have recently reappeared in North American society and are making headlines as they infest not only apartment buildings and homes but also hotels and public spaces. With this website we aim to provide reliable information on bed bugs and suggestions for ways to deal with bed bug infestations. We do not endorse specific products or companies but instead discuss various methods that can be used in bed bug control.

Bed bugs have been a known household pest for over 3,300 years and were originally brought to North America by early colonists. In the 1950s bed bug populations had been greatly reduced in the developed world due to mass treatments with insecticides such as DDT, Chlordane and Lindane.

Bed bugs have been reported in all 50 states.
