About Bed Bugs
Bed bugs thrive on the blood of their host, which are preferably that of humans. These creatures neither fly nor hop, but are quite fast-moving and are almost impossible to spot with the naked eye. They execute their crime while their unknowing victim is sound asleep. Although their bites are generally not poisonous, some people have an innate allergy to their saliva which could result in a reaction that manifests in an itchy, bothersome rash.
In a day, the matriarch can lay a total of 12 eggs, which can hatch in a matter of 6 to 17 days. Once the baby bugs are out, they’d immediately need to feed on human blood. Five molts later, they become full-grown adults. The development of baby bugs are highly dependent on the temperature and general living conditions. They take an average of 3 weeks to 4 months to mature.
Nymphs are fully fed within 3 minutes of blood-sucking, while it takes 10-15 minutes of feeding for the adults. Bed bugs generally live from a year to a year and a half, sometimes even more. Bed bugs can live for months even without feeding on their preferred food which is human blood.
Bed bugs are drawn to human blood, and not the bed. They’re just found in beds mostly because this is where they get to snuggle up with their unsuspecting victims during their most vulnerable state. During day time, they lurk in the folds and linings of mattresses and make their way out when it’s dark and can soak up in lovely human warmth.
When the infestation has leveled up, bed bugs may no longer just be found in mattresses, but also in surrounding crevices, in door and window frames, in cracks on the floor, and in ceiling moldings. It’s easier for them to proliferate in close-knitted compound such as in multiple-family homes, hostels, and hotels.
Signs of Bed Bug Infestations
Most people find it challenging to see bed bugs with just the naked eye. Aside from the fact that they’ve gone hiding during day time, they’re also microscopic in size. Good thing is they have fecal residue that leave rusty marks on mattresses, sheets, furniture, and walls. These give away their presence and serve as a telltale sign of infestation.
Prevention of Bed Bugs
There’s barely any foolproof way to prevent bed bugs. These creatures are amazingly mobile and they’re literally everywhere. In hotels, hostels, and compounds, it can be difficult to keep track of them especially if there’s constant changing of beddings, mattresses, and furniture. Still, they can be avoided if proper caution is observed when checking into hotels, or buying second-hand furniture, mattresses, and beddings.
Before bringing in second-hand pieces into your house, make sure that you properly examine them for bed bug infestations. Same goes for when you’re travelling or sleeping in another room or bed. Always be a step ahead of these critters, as they can be really fast that they can come to attack furniture or beddings even when they’re from the adjacent room.
What we can do for you
When trying to control or treat bed bugs in your property, the most important thing you can do is to hire a professional pest control specialist who can take care of the matter for you. Trying to do it yourself will only be a waste of time as it takes skill, knowledge, and experience to effectively deal with these critters.
Professional bed bug control experts have a thorough understanding of the habits, life span, and behavior of bed bugs. This means that bed bugs will have nowhere to hide when it’s us they’re running away from. Pest Control Newcastle offers a range of options for bed bug control. These are the following:
Conventional pest control
Chemically formulated liquids or dust are the most basic yet most effective method of dealing with bed bugs. The effect is long-lasting, which means the bed bugs are kept off your property for a longer period of time. When Pest Control Newcastle employs this method with you, we see to it that you and your family are kept safe from any noxious chemicals or elements.
This is one way to eradicate bed bugs effectively. Our experienced pest control specialists will see to it that the temperature is raised to 120 degree Fahrenheit. We have the most up-to-date industrial heaters that help ensure our job is done safely and effectively.
Another way to eliminate bed bugs is to shoot steam into their hiding place, and as a result kill both adult bugs, nymphs, and even the eggs. Our pest control staff will see to it that none of them escapes from us.
