Origin of Bed Bugs

The ease in which humans travel have made way for bed bug infestations. Once an almost unheard of problem, bed bugs have been thrust into the spotlight through devastating stories of infestation. Infestations can happen in homes, offices, hospitals, housing facilities, and basically anywhere else. This is why it is very important to set in place the proper pest control in Ontario to avoid problems down the road. While we have heard of these parasitic pests, many people do not know much about the origins of bed bugs.

Now that bed bugs take up center stage when it comes to human-related pests, research has been completed to find out more about their origin. It seems that bed bugs have been around for as long as humans have been colonizing the Earth. It seems that bed bugs were a common pests even among the Egyptians. If we look at the fossilized evidence, they seem to have spent the last couple thousand years as a huge pest to humans. Wherever humans lived, bed bugs were not far away. With the development of pesticides bed bugs skulked off stage only to return with a mutation within the past decade. These pests can get around! They can hitch a ride on a human or animal host and deposit themselves somewhere else with relative ease.

Wherever bed bugs originated from may be shrouded in mystery but these pests are not gone from our everyday lives. With their new mutation it makes it much harder to set a proper pest control strategy in Ontario in place. If bed bugs are suspected do not wait to give ICU Pest Control in Ontario a call!
