What Are Bed Bugs?
Bed bugs are wingless insects and as such move around by crawling or riding from place to place in clothing, luggage or other such transport. Distribution can be further exacerbated in places such as theatres and public transport, with infestations frequently occurring in hotels and other buildings where there is a high density and turnover of individuals.
Bed bugs are mostly found in bedrooms as they generally feed at night when the host is asleep. When not feeding, they live in the bed frame or cracks and crevices around the room. They do not harbour in the mattress or bedding material.
They are reddish brown in colour turning blood red after feeding. The adult reaches approximately 5mm in length and passes through five nymph stages over a period of time to 128 days. The female lays her eggs in batches of 10 to 50, they are white in colour and deposited on various surfaces with a thin glue. They take on average 10 days to hatch and can mature into adults within one to two months given ample food. The female is then ready to start laying eggs. The speed of development depends on temperature and food availability. Surprisingly, bed bugs can live longer without food and can go without feeding for up to 140 days; the adult typically lives for about 10 months but can survive for a year or longer in cool buildings. This sensitivity to temperature means bed bugs will start to die if temperatures drop below 9ºC or rise above 36ºC. However, modern buildings have created ideal conditions for the bed bug with central heating and easy access to adjoining properties being commonplace.
How Do I Know I Have A Problem?
Bed bugs bite at night. The bite marks will depend on the reaction to the person being bitten. Just like Fleas & other biting insects, different people may experience a reaction in a different way and at a different time than others. Bites are usually on areas of the body that stick out of the bed covers.

They are large enough to see without any magnification; they can grow up to a quarter inch long. Young hatchlings look much like adults just much smaller. Most will appear to be a transparent tan or beige colour but will quickly turn dark brown, almost black, once they have fed. Bed bugs have almost a round body though it appears to be more oval upon closer observation. Bed bugs have six legs and are very good walkers.
The bed bug infestation may have spread from an adjoining building or from some furniture or suitcase recently brought into the house, second hand clothing may also spread infestation. Bedbugs feed entirely on human blood at night when the victim is asleep. After feeding they crawl back into their hiding places which are in cracks and crevices in furniture, behind wall paper, bed frames, cupboards, mattresses, electrical equipment, curtains, light fittings etc.
