Bed bugs are small nocturnal insects that feed on blood.
(Cimex lectularius is the most common species of bed bug.) Some people who are bitten by them get itchy welts on their skin.
However, the bugs have not been found to transmit any diseases to humans. Bed bugs are typically found on mattresses, box springs and bed frames, bedding, clothing, and in any dark cracks, seams, or crevices in beds, furniture, walls, or floors.
They can travel through water pipes, wall voids, and ducts, and can spread from room to room.
What are bedbugs?
Adult bed bugs are about 1/4-inch long and 1/8-inch wide. Younger ones are smaller (often about 3/16 of an inch long or the size of a pinhead).
Bed bugs have flat, grayish-brown or reddish-brown bodies with six legs, and after feeding, they become round and red. Also, Bed bugs give off a sweet, musty odor. Bed bugs eggs are white and very small, and their excrement appears as tiny brown or black spots, which can look like small blood stains if smeared. Thus, Bedbugs are a major pest to commercial establishments.
According to a recent survey, hotels and motels are the third most visited site for pest professionals encounter bed bugs. Also, Once inside a hotel, bed bugs are easily able to spread from room to room through a number of means including pipes, wall sockets, vacuum cleaners, on clothing, and luggage. Therefore, Given that adult bed bugs can survive several months without eating, they are often incredibly hard to control. It is paramount that a pest management program is implemented for all establishments that are at risk of bed bug infestation.
