Bed Bug Fast Facts and Control Solutions As children, none of us took bedbugs seriously. While chanting the childish mantra, "Good night, sleep tight, don't let the bedbugs bite," we burrowed down with flashlights under the covers to defy parent-imposed bedtime. But bedbugs are not a childish joke. They're a very real problem, and while the problem is serious, the solution may be simpler than you think. Bedbug Fast Facts Bedbugs live on human blood. Much like mythic vampires of old, only much smaller, bedbugs feast on human blood. They aren't just active at night, either.  Bedbugs don't always leave a mark. Because not everyone reacts to bites in the same...
