Bedbugs were relegated to near mythical status as early as 20 years ago, as they were nearly obliterated in places where people generally reside. However, partially due to globalization, ease of travel and the bed bugs ability to adapt to commonly used pesticides, bed bugs have emerged in numbers never seen before. Making matters worse, bed bugs are not relegated to areas where you would expect to see unsightly insects or rodents. Indeed, bed bugs are just as likely to be found in fancy hotels, hospitals, upper class homes and other clean places as anywhere else.
In fact, bed bugs are the perfect insect to spread at a breakneck pace. They are small, nocturnal insects that prey on warm blooded mammals, including humans. They usually hide in the smallest of crevices and can go on for months without food, meaning they can be transported from one location to the next.
The purpose of the bed bug legal guide is to inform the general population about the growing outspread of bedbugs, but more importantly, to educate them on their rights and remedies when they have been effected. While bedbug bites can prove to be a major nuisance, many property owners and managers brush off this problem, leaving many people to deal with the issues on their own.
