Bed bugs are small, flat, wingless insects that feed on the blood of humans and animals. Bed bugs are not known to transmit diseases but they can cause allergic reactions in some people.
Bed bug infestations occur when these insects inhabit a home or building and feed on the blood of humans or animals. Female bed bugs lay eggs in cracks and crevices around beds, furniture, and other objects near a bed. They can also spread by hitching a ride with people as they travel from place to place.
Bed bugs come from many places including furniture, clothing, luggage, used beds, and couches. They are not known to spread disease but they can cause allergic reactions in some people.
The Life Cycle of a Bed Bug
Bed bugs are one of the most difficult pests to eradicate. They are very resilient and they can survive for up to 18 months without feeding on a host.
Bed bugs have a complex lifecycle that includes four stages: egg, nymph, adult, and finally, the bed bug dies. The eggs hatch in about 5-10 days and then they go through five nymph stages before becoming adults. Adults will feed on human blood every 5-10 days to survive.
Bed bugs can survive for over a year without feeding because they go into a dormant state.
Bed bugs are not a sign of poor hygiene and they are not attracted to dirty homes.
Bedbugs are nocturnal which means they come out at night to feed on human blood.
Bedbugs live in cracks and crevices near their host’s bed, couch, or other furniture in the home.
