Here are additional headings and content on bed bugs to include after the introduction:

What are Bed Bugs?

Bed bugs (Cimex lectularius and Cimex hemipterus) are small, flattened body, parasitic insects that feed on animal and human blood. They are oval-shaped and reddish brown in colour. Full grown bed bugs are about 5-6mm long, about the size of an apple seed.

Bed bugs can live for 6 months at room temperature. Female bed bugs lay 2-3 cream-colored eggs every day. The eggs hatch in around 10 days.

When these wingless insect eggs hatch, the babies are called nymphs. Nymphs are pale and 1-4mm long.

Where Bed Bugs Hide

Bed bugs like to hide in dark places near where people sleep. They can be found:

  • Under mattresses
  • In floorboards and carpets
  • Behind baseboards
  • In bed frames and furniture
  • Inside mattress seams
  • In cracks in walls

Bed bugs ride in suitcases, clothes, furniture, and beds to spread to new places. They are found in homes, hotels, offices, stores, and vehicles.

How Bed Bugs Feed

Bed bugs use their mouthparts to bite and suck blood through the skin. They inject saliva that thins the blood.

Bed bugs feed at night when people are sleeping. They sense warmth and carbon dioxide from breathing. After eating, bed bugs hide to digest the blood meal.

They can go a long time without feeding again. They can multiply quickly and hide in tiny cracks in furniture, floors, and walls. Once they settle in, they are notoriously hard to get rid of.

The Risks of Bed Bugs

An untreated bed bug infestation poses many risks:

  • Bites lead to itchiness, discomfort, and interrupted sleep
  • Bed bugs can spread from room to room and to other homes/apartments
  • Large populations are difficult and expensive to eliminate
  • Social stigma and embarrassment over bugs in your home
  • Can cause allergic reactions

  • Itchy red skin welts on from bites
  • Spots of blood & Dark stains on sheets from crushed bugs
