The funny part is that bed bug are simply ordinary crawling insects with an incredible thirst for blood. They don’t hover around like mosquitoes or possess strong hind limbs for jumping 20 cm above ground. Adult female bedbugs lay lots of eggs that stick onto surfaces. Nymphs of bed bugs are lighter in color compared to adults and smaller in size. They are easily located on their hosts’ couches and beds where they can easily access their meal.
Signs of Bedbug Infestation
- Black Stains
One of main indicators of bed bug infestation is black spots or stains which resemble a black pen’s mark. The countless number of these spots will surely show you that you are surely their life ‘consoler’. They suck the juices out of you when depressed, when they are hungry, when they are greedy and when they have no particular reason to do so.
- Blood Stains
If we were to make a film about this horrific scene, maybe these beasts would be nominated for the Oscars. They do whatever it takes to quench their blood thirst. Arguably, you are like a blood bank that seems to appear in their most convenient times. They drink to their fill until they are unable to crawl back to their hideouts. When this happens, we unknowingly roll over thus resulting to these blood stains.
They are easily found in their hideouts. They are empty dry cases that indicate a growth in population and the beginning of the end. For help at this particular scenario, kindly contact us (800) 430-3778.
They are smaller in size than the adult bed bugs and have a lighter color. However, a red spot coloring on the center of their body shows they have recently had a blood meal. Their body thereby darkens with time as they grow into adults.
Killing Bedbugs or Getting Rid of Them
- Heat or heat treatment – A specific equipment is used to get rid of these pests. Placed inside a room that is infested, it raises the temperatures to 50 degrees Celsius killing both the bedbugs and eggs effectively.
- Insecticides – These chemical treatment methods may involve chemical dust such as silica aerogel and diatomaceous earth. Insecticide sprays such as Pyrethroid sprays and two oil based products can do the trick if used well. These used be applied in their hide outs which are likely to be cracks or void.
