Did you know having bed bugs in your home is not a reflection of your personal hygiene! Bed Bugs have no preference on where they live, from High End Hotels to Humble Back Packer Hostels and every where in between. They can travel across the country and even internationally with ease, hidden amongst your clothes.
The first thing many people do when walking into a hotel room is to throw their luggage up onto the bed or furniture. It sounds harmless but watch the video on this page and see how fast and agile Bed Bugs can be. Clothes on furniture or carpeted floors can be infected with Bed Bugs, to then be thrown into your luggage bag and brought home.
Older Bed Bugs can lay dorment for over a year before the need to find a blod host. This gives them the ability to forage through your home looking for a suitable food source. Normally found amongst bedding means the sleeping occupant will be the Bed Bugs breakfest, however if they roam from the bedroom they can find family pets to feed from.
Biting Insects are one of the most difficult pests to effectively treat. For a successful treatment our Beg Bugs Augustine Heights Pest Controllers do a vary of modern techniques which collectively will destroy the infestation.
Where Do Bed Bugs Live?
Out of sight these biting insects are harboring your in your bed ready to feed. Once you settle down for the night and stop moving about they wait until they can feel the warmth of your body heat and come out to eat. Throughout their life cycle blood is required to live on and for the females to produce eggs. The Bed Bug will pierce your skin using its needle like mouthpiece and draw enough blood in a few minutes to increase their body weight by five times. The Adult female Bed Bug will lay her eggs in the cracks and crevices of the bed and furniture. The eggs have to be put out of harms way but close enough to be about to find a food source once they hatch. One of our Bed Bugs Augustine Heights technicians will be able to show you all the hiding spots these biting insects will hide in.
What Do Bed Bugs Look Like?
Often confused as fleas, Bed Bugs are round/oval in shape and approximately 5mm in diameter. Their appearance can change by being brown in colour then going to a dark red after a feed. Their reduced profile can also change to a much rounder one after feeding.
What Do Bed Bug Bites Look Like?
Bed Bug bites are not painful at first and this allows them sufficient time to get a good feed. It is not uncommon for a bed bug to be on you, feeding for up to 10 minutes. They will mainly target exposed skin closest to contact with sheets and pillows. Diagnosing Bed Bug bites can be tricky as they might not be signs for days. Misdiagnosing bed bugs for another biting insect may be common on people that show no reaction to being biten however others may break out into itchy red welts. If you develop a rash after being bitten by suspected bed bugs we suggest you seek medical advice. It is possible for a doctor to provide you an allergic reaction test which might indicate exactly what caused the irritation. This is a much faster result than sending a sample board to our Entomologist.
