WHAT ARE BED BUGS & HOW THEY DEVELOP?
A bedbug is a small (usually 1mm – 6mm) nocturnal insect of the Cimicidae family. The bed bug lives by feeding on the blood of humans and other warm-blooded hosts (hematophagy). The eggs of these bugs are 1mm long and undergo five developmental stages in reaching maturity. It grows rapidly under favourable conditions of 70 to 90⁰F and feeds on human blood at regular intervals which is the essential component of their growth. They attain complete development in just two months from their hatch. An adult female can lay up to 500 eggs in its lifetime, 5 eggs per day as standard, and are found deposited in bed folds, cracks and crevices.
Among other sources, bed bugs can be brought into the home from travel to hotels and motels, from second-hand or even new furniture, and via wild birds and household pets. Bed bug infestations in hotels and apartments can travel from room to room, eventually saturating every room. Bed bugs may hide not only in beds, but along pipes and boards, furniture, carpeting, electrical outlets, inside walls, screw holes, and even room clutter. The most common hiding place is along the piping material on the edges of mattresses.
BED BUG INFESTATION SIGNS
A few signs of a bed bug infestation:
- Red, itchy welts on areas of skin that are exposed while sleeping
- A strong, musty odour
- Dark coloured feces near hiding places
- And, of course, live bed bugs
The first thing to do if you suspect you have bed bugs is to search your mattress and box spring carefully.
