Bed Bug Bites
Bed bugs have a beak-like mouth that is formed by two parts. One part feeds off human blood during a bed bug bite, and the other part injects saliva so you don’t feel the bed bug biting.
When bed bugs bite humans, they generally feed for up to 10 minutes, drinking 6 times their weight in blood. These bloodsuckers cause havoc in both Dallas Fort Worth, mainly because bed bugs bite in the evening when humans are sleeping.
