What is a Bed Bug?

Bed Bugs are parasitic insects of the cimicid family that feed exclusively on blood.   

 

Bed bugs are not only found in beds. While they stay close to the bed, we find them in other areas such as;

 

  • Cracks in headboards

  • Underneath chairs and sofas

  • Under area rugs and along the edges of carpets

  • Behind baseboards and hanging pictures

  • In telephones, clocks and radios

  • Behind switch plates

  • In dresser drawers

  • In folds and seams of curtains

Bed bugs are usually found within 6 feet of the bed and are drawn by the carbon dioxide that we exhale during our sleep. They administer an anesthetic so that we do not feel the bite, along with an anticoagulant so that our blood flows freely. Some victims may never know they’ve been bitten while others will suffer intense itchy welts (usually in a row).

Early detection is crucial in preventing major infestations and keeping treatment costs and reputation exposure at a minimum. Identifying these blood-sucking pests can be tricky. Adult bed bugs are relatively easy to spot if you look in the right places. However, bed bug eggs and nymphs are nearly microscopic. Eggs will hatch and nymphs will become adult bed bugs in no time. Left undetected and untreated, they will reproduce and form a colony which can become a massive infestation quite rapidly.
