HOW DO YOU GET BED BUGS?

 

Bed bugs are often picked up in buildings frequented by large numbers of people, like hotels, and unknowingly brought back home in

  • Infested luggage
  • Backpacks
  • Handbags
  • Furniture
  • Bedding
  • Shoes
  • Clothing

In multi-living dwellings like apartment blocks, bed bugs easily make their way between units infesting the entire building.

Bed bugs are often found:

 

  • In Bedding
  • Behind electrical outlets and light switches
  • In crevices of furniture
  • Inside mattresses and box springs
  • Between flooring

  • Under chairs
  • In the drawers of bedside tables, dressers and tall boys.

HOW TO TELL IF YOU HAVE BEDBUGS?

 

The real answer to this and to know 100% for sure if you have bedbugs is to see the bug itself.

Not all bites are caused from bedbugs and by presuming you have bedbugs, you could be giving yourself unnecessary stress!

It is important to realise that it is not possible to provide a diagnosis simply by examining the bite, the reason being is that simply that everyone reacts differently to bites!

If you are being bitten you should consider all possible causes of the bites also taking the following questions into consideration:

  • Have you travelled recently?
  • Did the bites start after you have come home from travelling?
  • Has anyone stayed over that has been travelling?
  • Do you have pets?
  • Have you seen or heard any birds nesting in or around the window seals/roof cavity/balcony etc?

Although bedbugs are small parasitic insects, they can be seen by the naked eye and can be identified by the appearance of small brownish or reddish dots on bedding, mattresses, and furniture. These are bed bug droppings and blood spots from their feeding.

WHAT DO BEDBUGS LOOK LIKE?

 

Bed bugs are flat, reddish-brown, and somewhat oval and flat and about 5-6 mm long or the size of an apple seed. As the bed bug feeds their bodies swell and appear to be red in colour due to the blood they have injected. An unfed bed bug would usually be a cream colour.

The Young:

 

  • Small and colourless
  • General body appearance of adults
  • Turn red or purple when engorged with blood

Adult:

 

  • 4-5 mm long
  • Reddish-brown in colour
  • Wingless (oval structure in their place)
  • Flat, oval shaped body
  • Body appears to be shiny
  • Piercing/Sucking mouth part

It is important to mention, that although bedbugs are small parasitic insects, they can be seen by the naked eye and are identified by the appearance of small brownish or reddish dots on bedding, mattresses, and furniture.
