Bed bugs have become resistant to many of the products used in the past to control them. Once they are introduced into an environment they can readily spread. Common ways that bed bugs are relocated include overnight stays in infested hotels, the purchase of infested furniture, hitching from guests and kids from places such as schools, dorms, department stores, and friends homes.
Perhaps the most significant factor that has enabled bed bugs to spread throughout the US is the lack of public awareness:
Many people simply don’t realize that bed bugs truly exist. Once they are introduced it is not uncommon for infestations to go undetected for several months or more. One of the reasons infestations are not detected sooner is the secretive habits of bed bugs. They are mostly active at night, coming out of hiding places to feed on people as they sleep. Their bite is painless so people are unaware that they have been bitten. Once they have finished taking a blood meal they retreat back to their hiding places where they remain undetected and don’t return until it is time to feed again. In addition many people must first become sensitized to the bite before developing any bite symptoms, while others never react at all. It is not uncommon for people to have delayed reactions of several weeks or more, and then the symptoms are often confused with poison ivy, scabies, allergic reactions etc.
