Bed bugs, also known by their scientific name of Cimex lectularius, are small, flat, parasitic insects that feed solely on the blood of people and animals while they sleep. Bed bugs are found across the globe. Although the presence of bed bugs has traditionally been seen as a problem in developing countries, it has recently been spreading rapidly in parts of the United States, Canada, the United Kingdom, and other parts of Europe.
“Bed bug infestations usually occur around or near the areas where people sleep,” reported Paul Cochrane, President of Cochrane and Associates, the company behind the IAQ Video Network and the new public outreach video. “Bed bugs can be an annoyance because their presence may cause itching and loss of sleep. Some people may also suffer an allergic reaction. Sometimes the itching can lead to excessive scratching that can increase the chance of a secondary skin infection. We hope this video helps to educate people about ways to protect their homes and health from this pest and other microbial contaminants and pathogens.”
