Hi, I’m AJ with Bulwark Exterminating. These are the bedbug quick facts. What are bedbugs attracted to?

There are two main things that bedbugs are attracted to. One is our body temperature bedbugs can pick up on thermal images. So while we stay in one area for a long time, will heat up the environment around us.

The second thing is a carbon cloud. While we’re laying in one spot at night sleeping, we build up a carbon cloud around our bodies that will also attract bedbugs to us.
