How do I know if I need Louisville Colorado Bed Bud Exterminators?
Bed bugs are small parasitic insects from the Cimicid family that feed exclusively on blood. Bed bugs have been known as human parasites for thousands of years. The oldest known evidence of bed bug infestation was found in Oregon in caves approximately 5100 years old. The common bed bug, Cimex Lectularius, is the best known as the common bed bug.
Adult bed bugs are light brown to reddish brown, flat, oval-shaped, and have no hind wings. Their size is about 1/4inch in length making it possible for them to fit into tiny crevices. They are not visible to the naked eye and can only be identified by seeing their fecal droppings or eggs which look like small grains of rice.
Bed bug infestations usually occur around or near places where people sleep. These areas include apartments, shelters, dormitories, hotels, cruise ships, buses, trains and luggage. Bed bugs are primarily active at night because that is when the host is sleeping and the temperature is cooler. During daylight hours they will seek a place to hide such as cracks or crevices near beds or furniture.
Bed bugs are not particular as to the type of shelter they inhabit, be it a cardboard box, a couch or a five-star hotel. Larger infestations may live in furniture or bed frames while smaller groups may occupy electrical switch plates and crevices around the room. Bed bugs are usually active at night, but they can also feed during the day.
Immature bed bugs require more blood meals than adult bed bugs and may need to feed every 5-10 days. Furthermore, males have been shown to require more blood meals than females because their body mass is greater than that of the female. Bed bug infestations may continue for months or years without being noticed by the homeowner or occupant of the building.
Bed bugs are most active in the night and at twilight. When people sleep, bed bugs climb onto the mattress, bite, and suck blood from their victims. Bed bug bites do not usually cause a rash or itch, but after many consecutive nights of being bitten, victims often develop redness and inflammation. The first sign of bed bug infestation is often the presence of small blood spots on sheets, pillowcases, or mattresses. Bed bugs are attracted by warmth and carbon dioxide; they feed at night when the host is asleep.
Bed bug bites don’t transmit any disease; however they can leave psychological scars and make sleeping unpleasant. Allergies to bed bug bites (which look like mosquito bites) have been reported in some cases.
