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

[Music]

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
