Bed Bug Basics


Bed bugs get their name because they are commonly found in beds but can also be found in other places where humans spend a lot of time: hotels, airplanes, and couches. They can feed on the blood of any  warm-blooded animal but their most common targets are humans because we have a lot of exposed skin for them to bite. While feeding, they inject the skin with their saliva (this keeps the blood from clotting) and an anesthetic (this keeps the host from feeling the bite and moving). After feeding, they retreat back to its place of harborage for days or even weeks before coming back out. This can make detection difficult until the infestation is well established. Bed bugs find their hosts while they are sleeping by detecting body heat, the carbon dioxide from exhaled breath and other biological signatures. Although they do not spread disease, their bites can become red, itchy welts. Bed bug bite reactions in skin look like those caused by fleas and mosquitoes, making it hard to tell the difference.Unfortunately, bed bugs can mature in about 35 days. They then live about seven to 12 months. The smaller the infestation, the easier bed bug extermination is to conduct. That’s why it’s important to spot any possible infestation as early as possible.
