Your Broken Arrow exterminator has the tools and expertise to know exactly what to do when bed bugs are problem. Bed bugs are a blood feeding insect that victimize us in our sleep. They hide in our mattress seams and boxsprings and attack us brutally at our most vulnerable point. They feed off of our blood and our blood alone. While this should make them a vector for diseases, they actually don’t carry any that we know of or have ever documented that we’ve caught. So in this article, let us take a good hard look at bed bugs, their lifecycle, and what you and your Broken Arrow exterminator can do to protect yourself, and your loved ones from these insects.


Humans have had a long, arduous history with bed bugs. Archaeologists have found evidence of bed bugs all the way back to the beginning. The Romans wrote about bed bugs, the middle ages had love potion that contains bed bugs as a recipe, the Egyptian spoke of them in their hieroglyphics, and even cave paintings from ancient caveman, show bed bugs as a problem. Many scientists believe that bed bugs are a very close relative to the bat bug. It’s believe that when we lived in caves, these bat bugs infested the bats, roosting above us. Some of them climbed down the walls and fell upon the humans sleeping below. These insects became the modern bed bug.

While we have had bed bugs all the way through history, there was a point where we almost eliminated them completely. During the 1940s a new pesticide came on the scene known as DDT. This miracle chemical killed everything. Often people with bed bug issues would douse their sheets and mattresses with this chemical, eliminating every bed bug in their home. While it was very effective against bed bugs, it was soon found that this chemical causes cancer in people. It was quickly pulled from the shelves, and the bed bug was given a chance to come back. Every year since then we’ve had more bed bug problems than we’ve had the previous year. Contact your Broken Arrow exterminator for help with these insects.
