What Are Bed Bugs?
Bed bugs are small round shaped insects that are parasitic in nature by feeding on the blood of humans and pets. Their typical feeding time is at night when their hosts are asleep. Hence, the name. Adults have a flat body and are about the size of a seed from an apple. After feeding they can swell in size and their bodies take on a red colored tone.
Bed bugs do not have wings. However, they are able to move fast along walls, ceilings and floors. An adult female can lay hundreds of eggs in its lifetime, which if left untreated can result in a major infestation.
Young bed bugs will shed their skin about five times in their lifetime and require a feeding on their host before each shedding cycle. They can develop into a fully grown adult inside of a month and can reproduce three to four generations within a year.
They normally will bite a human during their sleep causing red itchy rash like marks on a person's skin. While they are a nuisance, they luckily are not known to carry any kind of diseases.
Where Do Bed Bugs Come From?
In most cases, bed bugs get into your home through luggage or from used furniture. They have thin flat bodies that allow them to hide in tiny spaces no thicker than a credit card. These insects do not have nests like fire ants. Instead they hide in groups. One will most often find them hiding within mattresses and boxsprings which make ideal hiding places during the day and allow them to come out and feed on their hosts at night.
Because they feed on blood, having them in your home does not indicate a sign of dirty conditions. They are hitchhikers and will travel from place to place. If you visit a lot of hotels, they can sneak into your luggage without ever being detected. They can also be found in used furniture as they prefer to hide in upholstered areas.
Bed bugs can also easily move from home to home inside multi-unit buildings such as apartments, condos and hotels.
They are incredible survivors and can lie dormant without a feeding for up to 400 days.
