They are primitive pests for they require a blood meal drawn from their hosts to survive. Bedbugs are red-brown in color, oval shaped and grow to 4 mm in length. They are hardy pests for they can go for months without feeding. In addition to this, a female bedbug lays hundreds of eggs in its entire life posing a major threat to a house occupant.

How They End up in Homes?
Bedbugs are brought into our homes via our luggage from trips. We carry them from hotels or infested homes unaware of the evil cooking in our midst. Once they set ground in our homes, they spread across the house into our rooms where the host will feel its wrath.
Another way of its unsuspected intrusion is by bringing in second-hand furniture or one left outside for long periods of time. You should carry out an inspection first on them before letting them in. A heavily infested furniture might require you to touch it.
Confirm Your Suspicions
You have to check out for the signs to truly confirm that you are under an infestation. The signs require little effort to unveil the mystery for you. They are:
- Blood stains on sheets.
Bedbugs leave blood stains of their victims on their beddings. Once they feed, they easily get squashed thus leaving red smeared marks.
- Small black dots.
Bedbugs leave black spots on the beddings too enabling them to feed once more.
- Cast brown skins.
Bedbugs shed skins severally as they mature into adults. They take only five weeks to mature into adults.
