Bed bugs are reddish in color with a hint of brown. Their size range from 1mm to 7mm. They are flat and small that feed on the blood of sleeping people and animals. They can live for months without a meal.
Bed bugs have recently been spreading across parts of the United States, Canada and parts of Europe. They were seen in the past as only an insect more common in third world countries.
These pests usually infest areas where people sleep. They hide in all possible crevices during the day such as mattresses, bed frames, headboards, behind wallpaper and around any clutter around the bed.
Bed bugs are not necessarily known to cause disease but they are annoying as they cause itching and discomfort preventing people and animals from a good night’s sleep.
Look for clues of infestation—bites around arms, hands, neck , face – or small “skeletons” of the bed bugs or rusty colored blood spots in your mattress or furniture – Also you may encounter a sweet musty odor.
Everyone’s home (or business such as hotel, dorm room, apartment, cruise ship–even public transportation) is at risk of getting bed bugs. However, those who sleep in multiple quarters or homes who welcome constant guests are at an even greater risk.
