Life Cycle of Bed Bugs

Bed bugs in Florida

Bed bugs are the type of pest that do not just appear; they must be brought into the home. These pests can become a nightmare if they infest an area, and early detection may be the best way to protect yourself from a difficult infestation.

Bed bugs are small parasitic insects that feed on the blood of warm-blooded animals. They are known as bed bugs because they tend to nest in beds and feed on the blood of people while they sleep. Though they have not been proven to transmit any disease, their bites can sting and itch.

They can grow up to 4-5 mm long and 1.5-3 mm wide (approximately the size of an apple seed). Recently hatched bed bug nymphs are 1 mm and cream colored.

Bed bugs are easily transmittable and can be difficult to eradicate without the help of a professional. You can pick up bed bugs anywhere including offices, stores, gym, etc. They typically make their home in beds, pictures, baseboards, or upholstered furniture and scatter themselves throughout a room.

There are a few key signs to look out for when determining if you have a bed bug infestation. Look out for small brown spots from fecal matter or blood smears on sheets. You may find tiny translucent eggs in the folds of the mattress and box spring. A big indication of bed bugs is if you find welts and bites on your skin.
