What are Bed Bugs?

Bed Bugs_01

The common bed bug (Cimex lectularius Linnaeus 1758) is an ectoparisite insect (a parasite which lives on the outside of the body of the host) of the family Cimicidae. Bed bugs feed only on the blood of humans and other warm-blooded hosts. Although bed bugs have a cryptic behavior and can conceal themselves in tight cracks and crevices, bed bugs are often found in bed parts, such as mattresses and box springs, hence the common name.

Habits

Bed bugs like to travel and are good hitchhikers. Bed bugs will hide in suitcases, boxes and shoes to be near a food supply. Bed bugs are elusive, nocturnal creatures. Bed bugs can hide behind baseboards and in cracks, crevices, and folded areas of beds, bedding and adjacent furniture, especially mattresses and box springs. Bed bugs can also hide in electrical switch plates, powerpoints, picture frames, wallpaper and nearly anywhere inside a home, car, bus, or other shelter. Bed bugs usually come out at night for a blood meal. However, they are opportunistic insects and can take a blood meal during the day, especially in heavily-infested areas. Bed bugs usually require 5-10 minutes to engorge with blood. After feeding, bed bugs move to secluded places and hide for 5-10 days. During this time in the bed bug life cycle, they do not feed but instead digest their meal, mate, and lay eggs.

Bed Bug Bite Images and Bed Bug symptoms

Although bed bugs can dine on any warm-blooded animal, they primarily dine on humans. Bed bugs do not transmit diseases, but their bites can become red, itchy welts.

Bed bug bites do not hurt; bites may result in an itchy welt which causes discomfort and can lead to secondary infection of the bite wound due to scratching.

Treating the bites soothes the irritation, but it can still be very distressing when there are multiple bites which sometimes occur with bed bugs.

When Traveling

  • Vacuum suitcases after returning from a vacation.
  • Regularly inspect areas where pets sleep for signs of bed bugs.
  • Change your bed linens often. Inspect bedding for shed bed bug skins and blood spots.
  • Inspect hotel rooms before you settle in. Set your luggage away from walls and furniture, including the bed.
  • Check your bedsheets for tell-tale blood spots.
  • Consider bringing a large plastic trash bag to keep your suitcase in during hotel stays.
  • Carry a small flashlight to assist you with quick visual inspections.

When Home

  • When you get home from travelling, inspect your suitcase. Store clothes in a sealed plastic bag until they can be washed and dried on high heat.
  • Examine second hand furniture before bringing it home or even better never bring second-hand furniture, especially mattresses and box springs, into a home without thoroughly examining for signs of a bed bug infestation. You might consider having a pest control professional inspect the furniture as it is difficult to detect an infestation if you are untrained.
  • If you suspect you have bed bugs, don’t just sleep in a different room. This just expands the bed bugs territory.
  • It is imperative to seek professional pest control to address a bed bug infestation. Bed bugs are hard to make rid of and they are definitely not a DIY project.
