Bed bugs are gross, but they’re out there. The blood-sucking critters have shown up everywhere from apartments to movie theaters and, even worse, you can have them and not even know it.
So, it makes sense that you’d want to do everything you can to repel them. Luckily, scientists are on the case.
Recently, a team of scientists from the Florida University decided to do an experiment on what color bed bugs prefer in order to determine if the color of our sheets attracts them.
According to the scientists, the bugs are probably attracted to red color as it resembles the color of their shells.
Now that you know this fact, it may be wise to change your red or black sheets and protect yourself from the harmful effects of bed bugs.
