What is a Bedbug?
These bugs are flat bodied in appearance and are often mistaken for a tick or a small roach. Adults can reach 5-7 mm in length, while nymphs (juveniles) are as small as 1.5 mm. You can spot a nymph much easier after it has eaten. Their bodies are clearly transparent, but after a meal, they are red, because they are filled with blood. Though these bugs have wings, they cannot fly.
Do You Know Where Bedbugs Live?
As mentioned above, you probably understand now that bedbugs do not exist in bedding only. This can sometimes be confusing when you see one on your living furniture or carpet. Most likely, however, you will not see them until it is too late. They are nocturnal, and come out at night. They live in bed mattresses, where they can find food readily available. They can also be found in furniture, picture frames, light switches, carpets, stuffed animals, on your pet (a form of transfer) and any other place where they can get close to their prey. Bedbugs can be located inside luggage, planes, vehicles, and bedside clutter. Unknowingly, many travelers are bringing the bedbug right into their safe home environments. Once they have made it in your home, they are near impossible, without professional help, to eradicate.
Think you are protected from a bedbug infestation taking place in your home? If you eat out, travel, go to tourist areas, ride in airplanes, use public facilities such as conference rooms and churches, you may want to think twice about your safety.
