Termites!

There's a lot of them

Bed Bugs!

They have big appetites

Bed bugs eat blood (ew!), and they can ingest up to 7x their own body weight in a single feeding!

They are sneaky little pests

Bed bugs are not only small and hard to spot, but they have chemicals in their saliva (spit) that allow them to numb their prey's skin when they feed!

They aren't big on moving

The average bed bug won’t move more than 30 ft. in its lifetime. They depend on their hosts to travel and aren’t able to jump or fly!

They adapt to schedules

Bed bugs won’t only come out at night! If the people they’re after sleep during the day, they’re more than happy to come out to feed in the light.
