A free website that allows you to view recent bed bug reports around the U.S. Great for travelers and renters to consult before booking a reservation or renting an apartment. Bed bugs have been on the rise over the past 10 years and the reports are growing. Most Americans don’t know what a bed bug looks like, and they are easily transportable through luggage and clothing. They usually thrive in the cracks and crevices of mattress and come out at night to “feed” on, yes, you guessed it – you! They are very hard to get rid of and can lay many, many eggs at one time. “Don’t let the bed bugs bite!” isn’t just a cute saying anymore!
