A massive epidemic of bed bug infestations have spread throughout the New York City area. These critters are small in size, measuring only 4mm by about 13mm. Even though they are small in size, bed bugs have a strong impact on the environments they intrude in. Evolving through six life stages, they can make their stay range over long periods of time.
Bed bugs are able to live and thrive in a number of conditions which makes them difficult to remove. Bed bugs are able to survive through extreme temperatures and humidity levels. On the cold spectrum, they can survive temperatures below thirty degrees. Additionally, bed bugs can withstand temperatures greater than one hundred and ten degrees. Humidity and high moisture levels do not affect their ability to live and reproduce. Since they are able to withstand these environmental conditions, it becomes difficult to remove them.
