Bed Bugs

Bed bugs (Cimex lectularius) are small, flat, oval shaped insects that are approximately 5-7 mm long. They are white, almost clear in color after they hatch and before they feed. Then they become a shiny reddish brown to dark brown color after feeding. Bed Bugs are ofter carried into the home via person or objects such as previously owned furniture, clothing or in luggage from a recent trip. Adult Bed Bugs typically live 6-7 months but can live up to 1.5 years if in the right conditions. They can lay up to 10 eggs per day and development from egg to adult normally takes 35-50 days (5 stages-each requiring a blood meal) depending on temperature and conditions.

How to Identify Bed Bug Bites

If you notice speckles of blood on the bed sheets, bites on your skin, and bed bug feces and skin shaving are the most common indicators of bed bugs. Commonly found on:

  • Hands
  • Forearms
  • Back
  • Calves
  • Neck
  • Shoulders

 More often then not, Bed bug bites are grouped together in some small area of your body. These bites look like small raised or flat areas, which will feel inflamed, itchy, blistered, and red. (depending on the sensitivity of the skin) Bed Bug bites are sometimes not visible immediately, but the signs will be visible after a few days. Remember not everyone shows the same reactions after a bed bug bite.

There are extreme cases reported in which swelling raised dramatically or, bites turned into blisters. If you have developed a rash, try not to scratch it, if the rash becomes infected get medical help immediately.

Why do Bed Bugs Bite

They bite so they can survive and develop. Bed Bugs feed mostly at night while people are asleep but can attack during the day in subdued light. When the bugs bite, they pierce the skin with an elongated beak, inject saliva into the skin and withdraw the blood. The fluid often causes the skin to become irritated and inflamed. Welts commonly develop and itch. Still, 30% of the victims show no reaction to bites and the very young and over 65 show less sensitivity. If feeding is undisturbed, bed bug becomes engorged with blood in 3 to 15 minutes depending on the size. It then crawls to its hiding place where it remains for several days digesting its meal. 

Where do you find Bed Bugs?

The most common areas to find Bed Bugs are places immediately relating to the bed and surrounding furniture. Over time they multiply and can spread to any small crevice or cluttered area they can find to hide and find their next victim. Couches, love seats, and leisure chairs are popular hiding areas as well.  Hiding places are evident when black or brown fecal spots are found on surfaces where the bugs hide or rest. **Treating yourself will often make problems more spread out and more difficult to get rid of. Bed Bugs are resistant to most everything over the counter.  Call us today if you think you have Bed Bugs. (see below)
