Facts About Bed Bugs
Bed bug bites can cause a number of health issues. The most common one is a skin rash, though bites can also cause allergic reactions and can even have nasty psychological effects.
Bed bugs can survive without feeding for a long period of time (roughly 20 to 400 days). Of course, their survival also depends on the temperature and the humidity of their environment.
Female bed bugs can produce about 200 eggs in just five days. They usually choose small cracks and crevices around bedrooms and properties to lay their eggs in.
Bed bugs don’t spread by flying or jumping. They usually move from one infested property to another by crawling and through second hand furniture, laundry and luggage.
Bedbugs leave a very specific trail of bite marks which scientists call “breakfast, lunch and dinner”, as they are three in a row.

The name gives it away – bed bugs spend a lot of time in bed. Which pretty much is not a big deal and doesn’t really concern you. Unless it’s your bed we’re talking about. Then you should be quite alarmed because the average bed bug preys on human blood and nothing can sate its lust for warm vein juice. However, the tiny parasite is not limited to bedding only – it can plague couches and cushioned chairs as well! (Keep that in mind the next time you use public transportation and you’re about to rest your head on the seat.) If these pesky home critters ever bother you, it’s either the cosmopolitan common bed bug or its tropical relative which prefers warmer climate. Whether it is because it doesn’t like the cold or tropical blood just tastes better, we don’t know.
What color is a bed bug?As you can see on the picture, bed bugs are small, rusty or mahogany brown color when they haven’t fed. After they’ve had a bite, they change their colour to a mix of red and brown. And if you notice a bed bug which looks kind of bloated and reddish, it’s probably because of a recent blood feast. Here is how to identify if you have a bed bug problem.
How Big Is A Bed Bug?
Bed bug babies or nymphs, as they’re also called, range ins size – from 0.09 inches to 0.18 inches. Adult individuals are as big as an apple seed.
Why Do They Come to Our Homes?
As you surely know, their primary diet consists of fresh blood. And there have been no recent news of bed bugs going vegan. We are sorry to inform your dogs, cats and any other fuzzy pets you might have that bed bugs find them appetising as well. Any mammal with pulse should be concerned in case the little bloodsuckers are nearby. Shelter is another reason the home invaders settle down in human dwellings. To the pilgrim bed bug, your bedding looks like a five-star hotel with an all-you-can-eat buffet. You being the only meal served, of course.
