Bed Bugs: What You Need To Know
Bed bugs are the only species from the Cimicidae family that has adapted to live solely with humans. They cannot hop nor fly but with the circulation of furniture, luggage and clothing today, the spread of bed bugs has been rising in the past few years. Bed bugs are active only at night and are normally attracted to exposed skin of a sleeping person. They inject saliva into the host which contains several proteins that usually causes an allergic response from most hosts.
Bed Bug Life Cycle
Female lay one to five eggs in a day and can lay 200-250 eggs in her lifetime These eggs hatched within 6-10 days which immediately begin to feed as soon they become immature bed bugs. These nymphs molt five times requiring a blood meal before reaching maturity.
Immature bed bugs may live for several months even without feeding and can survive as long as one year. Adult ones on the other hand, will live ten to eleven months under normal circumstances.
Habits of Bed Bugs
Bed bugs prefer to strike while their victim is lying still for hours because they cannot feed on someone who is active. So while the sun is up, they hide deep within mattresses or other protected areas in your home. In just a few months, these can include bedside tables and dressers, joints of bed frames and along box springs.
If the infestation is not detected and left untreated, these bloodsucking insects can easily migrant to adjacent rooms by using the holes produced for plumbing or electrical wiring. And as they travel from room to another room, they occupy picture frames, cracks in ceilings and even door frames. Hotels and apartments are very susceptible to these sorts of high infestations due to each room being connected with wiring and plumbing.
Bed Bug Infestation Signs: How To Spot Them
Because bed bugs burrow deep in protected areas during daylight, it is nearly impossible to see the bugs themselves. However, with a close inspection along mattresses, walls and furniture, there are traces of activity that you can find. Look for small blood stains from bugs that were crushed or their excrement which looks rusty but can be described sometimes as dark. Shed skin or egg clusters can sometimes be found as well. A flashlight will help tremendously when inspecting protected areas such as cracks along the wall or ceiling, crevices along bed frames and side tables.
Preventing Bed Bugs: How You Can Stop Future Infestations
Since bed bugs are quite mobile and can crawl from one room to another, infestation easily grows which makes bed bug control difficult. Bed bugs spread are more common to hotels, apartment complexes and shelters and once introduced, they can readily spread from one infested unit to another.
Caution must be exercised when buying used furniture or clothing. Consider heat treating the item to be sure it doesn’t harbor bed bugs or their eggs.
Before bringing them into your home or building, they should at least be inspected thoroughly for any sign of bed bug infestation. While traveling, it is important to examine the bed and the bed frame which includes along the mattress folds, behind and along the bed frame and the headboard. If you locate signs of bed bugs, notify the hotel’s management immediately and request another room. Be sure to ensure that your new room is not adjacent (including below or above) to the room that you found the infestation in.
