What are Bed Bugs?
Bed bugs (bedbugs) are small insects with oval bodies that are notorious for sucking blood from humans and other warm-blooded animals. They are wingless insects and don’t fly.
The bed bugs hatch in 6-10 days and begins their life cycle. The immature bed bug or nymph seeks a blood meal from human beings. Adult bed bugs bite around the head and neck, arms, hands and legs. They prefer to live close to where people sleep and rest. Being nocturnal they thrive at night and hide during the day light.
Most adult bed bugs range between 5mm and 7mm in length. These pests are famous for their ability to adapt to any environment in the home.
Interestingly enough, while they are named “bed bugs,” they actually live just about anywhere. Bed bugs feed on and attack human beings. They easily “hitch hike” and travel across great distances. They can latch onto suitcases, clothes, and other materials to move easily.
The Australian Environmental Pest Manager’s Association developed the Bed Bug Code of Practice to guide efforts to control these pests. We adhere to the adhere code of practise on every bed bug treatment service we perform.

Types of Bed Bugs
Common Bed Bugs
Known as Cimex lectularius (Cimicidae), common bed bugs are the most rampant species of these insects, they’ve been increasing for decades, and they currently occupy every continent.
Common bed bugs look very much like the regular apple seed. They’re round on one end and pointed at the other. They also come in a dark brown color, and their flat shape helps them to easily fit into cracks. These bugs also have hairs, which you can see if you look closely at them.
With the common bed bugs, you get insects with six legs – four pointing backward and two coming straight out. They prefer to stay in enclosed, dark spaces – cracks in the walls, floorboards, and under a mattress.
Tropical Bed Bugs
Also known as Cimex hemipterus, these bugs are very similar to the common ones. But, the difference is that they prefer to stay in warmer, tropical climates.
The tropical bed bugs are also flat and brown and rounded. They leave the same traces as the common bed bugs, and they also love to stay in enclosed spaces. So, you can find them under mattresses and in other dark spots.
The Dangers of Bed bugs
Bed bugs aren’t known to spread or transmit diseases. There is some research suggesting they could provide transmission of human pathogens and infectious agents. However ther is no cause for alarms as there isn’t any evidence of them trasmitting infectious diseases.
Bed bugs do bite human beings and feed on blood. This is their blood meal. When a bed bug bites, you maybe notice red bite marks and red spots that could trigger an allergic reaction. Symptoms include dizziness, swollen skin, chest aches, and even anaphylactic shock.
A bed bug infestation can also lead to sleep deprivation and stress, and excessive scratching from contact with these bugs can cause infections. For this reason they need to be treated. We recommend using a pest control service to ensure 100% elimination of the eggs.
Signs of a Bed Bug Infestation
The first sign of a bed bug infestation is a painless but irrating bite. This results in itchy welts and scratching. They thrive at night so this is when you may get bitten and the scratches begin. They look and feel similar to flea bites. If you wake up in discomfort and start itching, that might be a clue of infestation.
Other signs include blood stains on your pillowcase and sheets, bed bug excrements on your mattress, and an offensive foul odour coming from sheets and bedding.
You should keep in mind that the bugs might not necessarily be in your bed. So, if you suspect an infestation, check around the bed as well. Look in your carpet, check around books, and even look in your closet. If you are unsure book a pest control service to get an expert opinion.
