Bed bugs (Cimex lectularius) are small, flat, oval-shaped insects that are approximately 5-7 mm long. They are white, almost clear in color after they hatch and before they feed. Then they become a shiny reddish brown to dark brown color after feeding. They enter into the home via person or objects such as previously owned furniture, clothing or in luggage from a recent trip. Adult Bed Bugs typically live 6 to 7 months, but can live up to 1.5 years if in the right conditions. They can lay up to 10 eggs per day and development from egg to adult normally takes 35 to 50 days (5 stages each, requiring a blood meal) depending on temperature and conditions.
Identifying A Bed Bug Infestation
Are you noticing blood smears on the sheets or pillowcases, feces (dried blood specs), dried out skin casings, or actual bites on your body? If so, you have evidence of a bed bug infestation. Some of the most common areas to find bites are: hands, forearms, back, calves , neck, and shoulders.
More often than not, their bites are grouped in some small area of your body. These bites look like small raised or flat areas, which will feel inflamed, itchy, blistered, and red (depending on the sensitivity of the skin). Bed Bug bites are sometimes not visible immediately, but the signs will be visible after a few days. Remember not everyone shows the same reactions after a bed bug bite.
Where Do You Find Bed Bugs?
The most common areas to find them are places immediately relating to the bed and surrounding furniture. Over time they multiply and can spread to any small crevice or cluttered space they can find to hide and find their next victim. Couches, love seats, and leisure chairs are popular hiding areas as well. Hiding places are evident when black or brown fecal spots are found on surfaces where the bugs hide or rest. Self- treating will often make it worse, more spread out and more difficult to eliminate. Bed bugs are resistant to most over the counter products or gimmicks.
