Perhaps you’ve heard the commotion about the influx of bed bugs in Colorado and the nuisance they can become. Bed bugs are small blood sucking insects. The adult females deposit eggs in cracks crevices, behind woodwork and similar locations. Adults can live for more than a year! It’s important to identify the species present to determine what kind of control should be directed to be the most effective. This information was located in the Bat bugs and bed bugs pamphlet from the CSU cooperative extension. For more information, check out this and other materials that we have available at the Colorado State Publications Library.
