Bed bugs are flat, oval and wingless parasites that survive exclusively by sucking blood. There are several species of bed bugs, all of which target humans or warm-blooded animals. Bed bugs are more commonly found in hotels or homes where the occupants travel often, whilst sleeping in different beds. With the increased ease of global travel so too is there an increase in bed bug infestations. If bed bug treatment is not sought by experienced pest control specialists the infestation can become severe. Female bed bugs can lay over 250 eggs in their lifetime. These eggs develop into fertile adults within 6-7 weeks.
Typical Signs of Bed Bugs
Bedbugs are active at night just before dawn which is when they feed on their hosts unnoticed. A bedbug’s bite is a very itchy red to whitish lump on the skin which can resemble a mosquito bite.
Bedbugs can typically be found in beds (behind folds, and seams), bedding, cracks in the bed frame, behind wallpaper or within any furniture or upholstery close to the bed. They are very small, with adults only reaching 3-4mm, and can often be seen by the naked eye.
Where infestations are more severe, tiny blood stains or their fecal matter can also be seen on the bedding.
