Understanding Bed Bugs: What Are They & What Makes Them Special
The term “bed bug” refers to a parasite that feeds on humans at night while they are fast asleep, hence the name. Bed bugs can only survive and grow by feeding on human blood on a regular basis. Bedbugs aren’t just a problem for humans; they may also harm birds and other warm-blooded creatures. Every site where people congregate, from homes and hotels to schools, offices, and even public transit, has been infested by bedbugs for more than 3,300 years.
As “hitchhikers,” bedbugs can travel large distances. They can attach themselves to luggage, clothing, and linens, and then wind up just about wherever. As a result, bed bug infestations are difficult to detect and populations can increase unnoticed since it is difficult to distinguish between bed insect bites and bites from other pests.
Do You Have Bed Bugs at Home?
Because of their tiny size and ability to conceal themselves in minute cracks and crevices, finding bed bugs can be a challenge. The presence of bed bugs can, however, be identified in bedding and mattresses. If you discover little blood stains on your bedding, you may be dealing with a bed insect infestation. Although there are various reasons why blood spots may appear on bedding, they are unmistakable indicators of an infestation if they are accompanied by other severe signs of bed bugs.
This is why it can take a long time before you notice any of the other more obvious signs of a bed bug infestation. Because bed bugs avoid extensive migrations when feeding on blood arteries, these blood spots tend to appear in a linear, row-like order.
Bedbug bites on the arms and legs are also a symptom of infestation. They may be minor but if the swelling and itching causes them to appear, they’re apparent. For the infection to spread, these bites can take up to three days to develop. Bite marks alone aren’t enough evidence of a bed bug infestation.
Bed bug molt skins, their eggs, empty eggshells, or the bugs themselves might also indicate an infestation. The human eye is able to see all of these items, despite their small size. After molting or emerging from the eggshell, bed bug molt skins and eggshells both appear pale white.
Infested surfaces are covered in clusters of dark brown or black dots of dried bed bug excrement. Sweet and musty smells are also emitted by bed bugs.
Where Bedbugs Prefer To Set Up Camp
Unnoticed, bedbugs can find their way into your home through your personal belongings such as luggage, clothing, and even secondhand beds or couches. Flattened bodies allow them to squeeze into gaps the measured width of a credit card, making them extremely versatile. Bedbugs don’t have nests like other insects such as ants or bees, yet they like to hide out in bunches. Mattresses, bed frames, box springs, & headboards are the most common places where they hide out during nighttime.
However, over time, they may disperse around the space, finding their way into every nook and cranny. They can spread to other rooms or nearby apartment units in the vicinity. If you have bedbugs living in your house, it does not mean that you are dirty. Despite the cleanliness of their surroundings, they are likely to be found.
