The Link Between Bats and Bed Bugs

Bed bugs are the stuff of nightmares, but you might be surprised to learn that not all bed bugs prefer to dine on human blood. The first step of bed bug treatment is determining what kind of bugs you have, since different species require different pest control treatments.

Most of the bed bugs that people notice in their homes around their beds are the kinds that prefer human blood as their main form of sustenance. However, another member of the bed bug family—bat bugs—can also be in your home. Bat bugs feed on bats like bed bugs feed on humans, and seeing them in your home can mean you have both a bug and bat problem. Your pest control company will determine the type of bed bugs you have and treat them accordingly. Bat bug treatment also involves locating and removing the bats that are the food source for the bugs.
