Bed bugs is an oval shape insect that is reddish brown in color. The color tone becomes more purplish in color when it has fed.
The Bed bugs are not knows to carry and spread any diseases, but they feed on human blood, which makes them an especially nuisance pest. Their bites do not cause any pain, and although some victims develop itchy red marks on their bodies, some people might not show any sign of a bite whatsoever, which is why at times they avoid detection in the beginning. As the infestation increases though, the red blood marks on bed covers give them away. Black or brown fecal spots on bed frames, walls and mattresses can also indicate their presence.
Bed bugs are found throughout the world. They can survive different degrees of temperatures. They can travel through luggage, clothing, second hand items, purses, and sleeping bags, etc. and spread to your house. A female Bed bug can lay up to 5 eggs per day, and up to 500 eggs in her lifetime, although mostly the number remains around 200.
If you have any suspicion about their presence in your house, make sure to call a Pest Control professional for an inspection.
