Bed Bug Identification
Bedbugs are small, flat, wingless insects with six legs that feed on blood from animals or people. They range in color from almost white to brown, but they turn rusty red after feeding.
The common bedbug doesn't grow much longer than 0.2 inches (0.5 centimeters) and can be seen by the naked eye to the astute observer. Bedbugs get their name because they like to hide in bedding and mattresses. Pictured right is an excellent Bed Bug Identification chart.
Bed Bug Detection
Research has indicated that one of the most effective tools for detecting low level bed bug infestations may be interception devices. These devices are designed to catch bed bugs as they travel to and from a bed by trapping them as they naturally more around the environment. Preliminary indications that the best bed bug interception devices on the market can detect 80% or more of low level bed bug infestations within 1-2 weeks of being placed under the legs of beds and couches. Bed Bug interception devices are an exceptional Bed Bug Control solution.
Bed Bug Q & A
Q. Do bed bugs spread disease?
A. Bed bugs should not be considered as a medical or public health hazard. Bed bugs are not known to spread disease. Bed bugs can be an annoyance because their presence may cause itching and loss of sleep. Sometimes the itching can lead to excessive scratching that can sometimes increase the chance of a secondary skin infection.
Q. What health risks do bed bugs pose?
A. A bed bug bite affects each person differently. Bed Bug Bites responses can range from an absence of any physical signs of the bite, to a small bite mark, to a serious allergic reaction. Bed bugs are not considered to be dangerous; however, an allergic reaction to several bites may need medical attention.
Q. What are the signs and symptoms of a bed bug infestation?
A. One of the easiest ways to identify a bed bug infestation is by the tell-tale bite marks on the face, neck, arms, hands, or any other body parts while sleeping. However, these bite marks may take as long as 14 days to develop in some people so it is important to look for other clues when determining if bed bugs have infested an area.
