Have Questions about Bed Bugs and how to get rid of them?
Bed bugs are very small, just over 1/8-inch long, and light to deep brown with flat, oval bodies. They are sometimes mistaken for ticks. After feeding, it will swell up and become red in color. The eggs are translucent and barely visible, and newly hatched bed bugs are about the size of a poppy seed.
No. Bed bugs cannot fly. They “travel” by hitching a ride on people’s belongings when they are set down in infested areas, then moving with them to a new location to start a new infestation.
No. Although a bed bug bite can be itchy and irritating, these bugs are not known to spread disease.
Bed bugs are most active at night, however, they will also move around during the day, and if they need to feed and a person is nearby, the bug is as likely to bite during the day as at night.
Bed bugs will bite multiple times, and even before biting will “test” several areas to find the best source of blood. Thus, the bites often appear in a line or cluster near one another. The bite area may also become inflamed and itchy due to an allergic reaction to the bed bug saliva.
No, bed bugs can live in upholstered furniture, behind headboards, baseboards, and even pictures on the wall. In fact, second-hand furniture should always be thoroughly inspected and/or serviced for bed bugs before bringing it into your home.
Signs of bed bug presence include live or dead bugs, shed skins, and blood spots on mattress or bed linen are signs of a bed bug infestation. Bites leave small welts, similar to that of a mosquito, on exposed skin.
