Bed bugs eggs are all it takes to get an infestation in your home.  These eggs can get into your house from buying used furniture or matresses.  The 

Here are five things to know about bed bugs.  

Finding Prey

Bed bugs feed on the blood of mammals.  

Bed bugs travel at night to find food.  They move in the darkness to the people they will feed on.  With antennae vibrating, they slowly shuffle their way to their sleeping victims.  Attracted by carbon dioxide exhaled by sleepers, the bed bugs climb up into bed and onto sleepers.   

Feeding

Bed bugs feed for about 5 minutes.  Once on their victims, they grab the skin with their claws.  Once latched, they break the skin by rocking their mouthparts back and forth to saw through .  Blood is prevented from clotting because bed bug salvia has anticoagulating proteins in it. A person might shift while the bed bugs feed.  If dislodged the bed bug will find another place to bite. Oftentimes, the bites will come in a set of three. Doctor’s refer to this as breakfast, lunch, and dinner. 

Resistence

Bed bugs are becoming increasingly harder to kill.  One chemical they are resistant to is pyrethroid. Pyrethroid is a common insecticide derived from the chrysanthemum flower.  Historically, chrysanthemum has been used for hundreds of years as an insecticide. Additionally, broad spectrum insecticides are used less frequently putting less pressure on bed bugs.  

Symptoms

The symptoms of bed bug bites are can be severe.  Generally, the bugs don’t spread disease. They aren’t carriers of microbes like other blood suckers such as mosquitos which carry malaria.  However bed bugs can can cause anemia in their victims. Anemia is caused by a loss of blood. Additionally, victims can suffer sleep loss due to the discomfort caused by bed bug bites.  Sleep loss has been associated with psychological distress like depression and anxiety as well.   

Smell

Bed bug infestation can smell.  This smell has been described as lightly sweet smelling.  The sweet smell comes from some chemical in the poop of bed bugs.  Namely the chemicals hexanol, octanol are present in the feces of bed bugs.  Dogs can be trained to detect these chemicals even when the levels are too low for human noses to detect.  

Bed bugs are really bad.  Luckly, there are ways to deal with them.  Contacting a quality pest control person to exterminate these pest will help you re claim your home.

When you get rid of bed bugs, you will be able to sleep well.  You can be confident we will take care of your property.
