What are bed bugs? 

These bed bugs are blood-sucking insects that prey on human blood while they sleep in the comfort of their own beds and homes. They can be found in hotel rooms, apartment buildings and commercial buildings.  These bugs prey on people while they sleep. It is very difficult to get rid of bed bugs because they multiply rapidly and quickly. They also thrive in our hot California weather since Bed bugs reproduce in temperatures between 70 and 82 degrees Fahrenheit.

What health issues are caused by bed bugs:

Some people experience severe allergic reaction to the bed bugs bites. There is also a high risk of injection.  The bites cause the individual to scratch which can introduce germs to the wound area. Also the constant biting can cause insomnia which leads to lack of sleep. Therefore, a lot of people experience depression, irritability, loss of appetite, anxiety, and difficulty focusing.  In addition bed bugs can attach to clothing. You might not feel comfortable having family or friends over due to fear of spreading the beds bugs. Bed Bugs are also carrier of Chagas disease—which affects 6 to 8 million worldwide.  Bed bugs infect people through feces not bites which are deposited on their sleeping host. 

Who does the liability fall on the landlord or the owner of the apartment or hotel.  They are liable to mitigate the damage that these bed bugs cause. It is their duty and obligation to protect all the tenants in the building and or hotel due to the rapid spread of infestation.
