Do bed bugs affect California ecosystems?

    Not really, bed bugs were nearly eradicated in the western world by the 1940’s, however, they began to repopulate developed countries in the mid 1990’s, most likely due to higher volumes of international travel.  They play an insignificant role in ecosystems.  They are a parasite that feeds off of humans, bats, and birds.  They are a prey species for spiders, ants, and cockroaches; however their eradication would have little to no effect on either.  Bed bugs are nothing more than a nuisanse to humans; they have a miniscule affect on the ecosystem.
