The bed bug: a special animal

Bed bugs are very small critters that live off the blood of people and animals. This sounds a bit sinister, however, so does a mosquito. Bed bugs are normally reddish-brown in color. When they have had a blood meal they will discolor to dark red. The bed bugs come off on body temperature and CO2 emissions from humans. They will mainly hide in mattresses, beds, headboards, wallpaper, ceiling edges, etc.. The average bedbug will live about a year and a half. Remarkably, bed bugs can survive for over a year without food.


Recognize the presence of bed bugs

There are several ways to determine the presence of bedbugs. Only where do you start looking? One tip is to start in the bedroom. One can look under the mattress, in the bedding, seams and cracks of the bed. During the day the bedbugs will be hiding, so the chances of you finding or seeing them walking around are quite small. Small bloodstains and droppings on the upholstery of the sofa or bed could indicate bedbugs. With bedbugs it is crucial that nothing is moved from one room to another and that action is taken as soon as possible to prevent a true infestation, after all, you don’t want the bedbugs to spread through the rest of the house/building. Something that can unfortunately easily happen without professional control.

How do bed bugs get into the rooms?

Now that you know how to recognize bedbugs, it is time to look at the ways in which bedbugs actually get into your home. Bed bugs have been an increasing problem in our country for years. One of the reasons for the increasing number of reports of bedbugs is that we have been traveling more and more. More and more people go on vacation or are abroad for work, they choose hotel or hostel stays in most cases. If one guest carries bedbugs with him in his luggage, it is possible that these bedbugs will spread through the room or the rest of the hotel. When a new guest will move into the infested room, the bedbugs will start nesting in the clothing. These infected clothes will then be put into the suitcase.
