Nobody wants to feel uncomfortable when sleeping in their own bed. The media is always talking about the problem with bed bug infestation and the difficulty to corral the issue. The truth is the earlier you identify a pest control issue, you can deal with it more efficiently. Here is some information on bed bugs to help keep you informed.

Bed Bug Lifecycle

Bed Bugs are small insects that feed on human blood. A newly hatched bed bug is semi-transparent, light tan in colour and they are the size of a poppy seed. An adult bed bug however is flat, reddish/brown in colour and has an oval body which resembles an apple seed. You should look for bed bugs fecal matter, blood drops and eggs.

bug lifecycle

Bed bugs are most active at night time. Starting at a very young age they begin to feed on human blood. Once they reach an adult size, the female bed bug will lay 5 to 7 eggs per week and can lay approximately 200 to 500 eggs in her life span. They reach adult stage by 4-5 months and can last up to a year.

Where are bed bugs found?

Bed bugs have many different hiding spots, but most people think that the mattress is the most common place they are found. Reality is that the boxspring is where they are most commonly found, and then it is found in either a couch/chair. When you factor in the frame/headboard, it appears that the 48% of bed bugs are found in that area. You should be looking for them in hiding spots that are dark; they are dormant during the day and active at night.
