What Are Bed Bugs?
A key to making sure you never have a serious problem with these pests is to educate yourself as to their appearance, behavior and indicators of their presence.
How to Identify Bed Bugs
- They are small, brownish insects with flat, oval shaped bodies
- They have six legs
- Short golden hair
- Two antennae
- Young bed bugs can be no bigger than a pinhead or even detectable by the naked eye.
- They feed on the blood of mammals, including humans.
- Their name comes from their tendency to live between mattresses and feed on bed occupants at night.
- These bugs don’t fly, but can move quickly over floors, walls, and ceilings.
Signs that Bed Bugs are Present
- First sign of a bed bug infestation is the appearance of small brownish or reddish dots on bed linens and mattresses (droppings and blood spots)
- Heavy infestations may result in an odor or described as “buggy” or sweetish smelling.
- Bed bugs feed on any bare skin exposed while sleeping (face, neck, shoulders, arms, hands, etc.)
Where do Bed Bugs Hide?
- Wood trim
- Electrical boxes and outlets
- Behind wallpaper and picture frames
How do Bed Bugs Invade a Home?
- Because bed bugs readily hide in small crevices, they may accompany (as stowaways) luggage, furniture, clothing, pillows, boxes, and other such objects when these are moved between apartments, homes and hotels
- Used furniture, particularly bed frames and mattresses, are of greatest risk of harboring pests and their eggs
Are Bed Bugs Harmful?
A common concern with bed bugs is whether they transmit diseases. Although they can harbor pathogens in their bodies, transmission to humans is considered highly unlikely. For this reason, bed bugs are not considered a serious disease threat. Their medical significance is mainly limited to the itching and inflammation from bed bug bites. The usual treatment prescribed is topical application of antiseptic or antibiotic creams or lotions to prevent infection.
