About Bed Bug Control
To prevent it from getting noticed, before piercing the skin and sucking the blood, Bed-bugs
inject a coagulant and also a kind of anesthetic into your skin which makes the area around it
numb. Therefore, you can not normally feel anything when the Bed bug is feeding on you.
Adult bed bugs look much similar to an apple seed (in shape and size) and would be easily
located if out in the
open. Before feeding, their bodies are flat, after they have fed, they become bloated and dark
and rusty brown.
Bed bugs are typically nocturnal insects and are known for their night activity. They seek
harborage in cracks and crevices. Common harborages include hotel rooms and cruise ship
cabins. They take shelter in folds & creases in bed linens, seams, under buttons on mattresses,
in the chair cushions in curtain and drapery pleats & hems, under the loose wallpaper or
picture frames, in drawers of the desks, behind the moldings in wall-mounted artwork, etc.
Another clear and noticeable symptom of a bed bug infestation is that the rooms have a sweet
smell. Also they leave marks of blood in or around bed sheets and linen which is a sign of
their blood sucking habits.
Bed Bugs are capable of surviving for many months without feeding and can hide between
adjoining apartments through cracks and holes from where wires and pipes pass. Therefore a
thorough inspection is needed along the bed frames, mattresses and other furniture for signs
of the bugs. Remember like with any other pest problem good sanitation and proper cleaning
can prevent bed bugs infestation.
