Bed Bugs Control

BED BUGS ARE VAST PROBLEM IN SYDNEY AND AROUND AUSTRALIA. THEY SPREAD EASILY BUT THEN HARD TO WIPE OFF RESULTING IN A RAPID INFESTATION IN THE NUMBER OF BED BUG OUTBREAKS. THE PRECAUTION TO AVOID THIS PROBLEM FROM ARISING IS TO CREATE AWARENESS OF WHAT TO LOOK FOR AND TO ENSURE BED BUGS ARE DEALT QUICKLY BEFORE THE MULTIPLE.

THEY ARE VICIOUS :-

BED BUGS FEED ON THE BLOOD OF HUMANS AND OTHER MAMMALS. THE PRIMARY CONCERN IS THE IRRITATION AND DISTRESS CAUSED BY BED BUG BITES CAN BE UN-TOLERABLE.

BED BUG BITES DO NOT HURT, THEY ARE ACTIVE AT NIGHT TIME AND SUCK ON HUMAN BLOOD BY RELEASING ANESTHESIA FROM THEIR BODY TO PREVENT HUMAN FROM REALIZING THEIR BITE. TREATING THE BITES SOOTHES THE IRRITATION, BUT IT CAN STILL BE VERY DISTRESSING WHEN THERE ARE MULTIPLE BITES AS IS OFTEN THE CASE WITH BEDBUGS. MULTIPLE BITES AND CONTACT WITH BEDBUGS CAN ALSO LEAD TO AN ITCHY RASH.

IDENTIFYING BED BUGS

ADULT BED BUGS ARE 5 MM. LONG. BEFORE FEEDING THEY ARE A FLATTENED OVAL SHAPE AND LIGHT BROWN, BUT BECOME ROUNDER AND DARKER AFTER FEEDING.

THEY COME OUT AT NIGHT AND ARE ATTRACTED TO THE WARMTH OF OUR BODIES AND CARBON DIOXIDE IN OUR BREATH. THEY ARE USUALLY FOUND IN BEDROOMS AND HIDE IN CRACKS,MATTRESS AND CREVICES DURING THE DAYTIME.

THE MOST COMMON SHELTER OF BED BUGS IS IN THE SEAMS OF MATTRESSES, IN CREVICES IN THE BED FRAME, BEHIND FURNITURE SURROUNDING THE BED (ESPECIALLY THE HEADBOARD) OR WHERE THE WALL MEETS THE FLOOR. AN ESTABLISHED INFESTATION WILL ALSO BE ASSOCIATED WITH AN UNPLEASANT SCENT SECRETED BY BED BUGS.

SOURCES OF BED BUGS INFESTATION

BED BUGS USUALLY ENTER A PROPERTY BY BEING CARRIED ON CLOTHING OR INSIDE FURNITURE. THE MOST COMMON PLACES FOR BED BUG INFESTATIONS ARE HOTELS AND LODGES OR TRAVEL BAGS.

BED BUGS OFTEN GET INTRODUCED INTO HOMES WITH SUITCASES. BED BUGS OR THEIR EGGS GET INTO CLOTHING OR SUITCASES FROM ANYWHERE YOU CARRY YOUR SUITCASE AND ARE THEN TRANSPORTED HOME. IF THERE ARE ANY SIGNS OF BED BUGS SAY IT AT A HOTEL, PARTICULARLY BEING BITTEN WHEN SLEEPING OR SEEING BLOOD SPOTS ON SHEETS, TAKE GREAT CARE IN BRINGING YOUR PERSONAL BELONGINGS HOME.

BED BUG BITES

BED BUG BITES ARE UNLIKELY TO WAKE THE VICTIM AS THEY INJECT ANESTHESIA. THEY CAN NIB ANYWHERE ON THE BODY BUT ARE OFTEN CLOSE TO BLOOD VESSELS NEAR THE SKIN. A SINGLE BED BUG MAY BITE MORE THAN ONCE AROUND THE SAME AREA.

IDENTIFYING BED BUG BITES

IT IS DIFFICULT TO IDENTIFY BED BUGS FROM THEIR BITE BECAUSE OUR BODIES REACT VERY DIFFERENTLY TO THEM. IT IS MORE IMPORTANT TO LOOK AT THE OVERALL PATTERN AND TIMING OF BITES AND OTHER FACTORS TO IDENTIFY WHETHER BITES ARE CAUSED BY BED BUGS. THE DESCRIPTION BELOW WILL HELP YOU IDENTIFY IF YOU HAVE A BED BUG PROBLEM.
