hi I'm dr. Jorge parada medical advisor

for the National Pest Management

Association today I'm going to talk

about bedbugs and what you should know

about the bites that this pest leaves

behind I often hear patients who think

they have been bitten by a bedbug and

want to know if they should be concerned

although bedbugs were once rare in the

United States they have made a comeback

and are now widespread throughout the

United States and the world so it is

important to know how these pests can

affect our health


bedbugs feed on the blood of humans and

other warm-blooded hosts they tend to be

most active at night because they are

attracted to the steady stream of carbon

dioxide we admit while we sleep bed bug
