Bedbugs are 3/16” long, oval, very flat, without wings and are blood feeders. Bedbugs hide in cracks and crevices during the day and at night crawl to their host and feed on blood by piercing the skin with their sharp mouth parts. Feeding occurs for only a few minutes and only a small amount of blood is taken. Reaction to the bites can be welts or no reaction depending upon the individual. Inspection clues are small red or brown fecal dots on surfaces. The spots may be on bedding, in appliances near bed, furniture, ceiling edges, outlets and other crevice areas. Hiding places for bedbugs include any crack or crevice, and not limited to: mattresses, headboards, furniture, behind baseboards, clocks, electrical equipment and wall voids.
Bedbug populations can increase relatively quickly. Bedbugs are not proven to transmit disease but have been found to harbor disease organisms. Adult Bed Bugs measure 3/16 inch long, and are broadly oval and flat and are amber to reddish brown in color, depending on how recently they fed. A bedbug has piercing-sucking mouth parts which enable it to pierce the skin and suck blood from its victim When present in sufficient numbers, it is possible to detect an obnoxiously sweet or foul "locker room" odor, which is emitted from their glands.
They are attracted by warmth and the presence of carbon dioxide. The bug pierces the skin of its victim with two hollow tubes. With one tube it injects its saliva, which contains anticoagulants and anesthetics, while with the other it withdraws the blood of its victim. After feeding for about five minutes, the bug returns to its hiding place. The bites cannot usually be felt until some minutes or hours later, with the first indication of a bite usually coming from the desire to scratch the bite site.
Note: Preparation Is Necessary In Order To Obtain Maximum Benefit From The Treatment. Waltham Pest Control Reserves The Right To Charge $100 Per Hour For Preparation By The Pest Control Technician.
In order to completely eliminate bed bugs from a dwelling it’s necessary to treat more than just the room where people are getting bitten by bed bugs at night. Most of the bedbugs will be in the room close to the person getting bitten, but they can travel quickly across floors, walls and ceilings. They can also get spread around the home when we move items such as; clothing. The best way to totally eliminate a bed bug infestation is to thoroughly treat the problem room along with all surrounding areas.
