What does a Bed Bug look like

Having pest problems?

Bed bugs are family members of the Cimicidae family, which includes over 70 different species. These pests have been around for thousands of years, and they are thought to originate from Asia. Today, bed bugs can be found all over the world, including in Australia. It is estimated that there are approximately 2.5 million bed bugs in Australia alone. 

Bed bugs can range in size from 1 to 7 mm. Adults are visible to the naked eye, but nymphs (juveniles) are not. small, light brown wingless insects that blood feed off animals, humans and other mammals. They are about the size of an apple seed and have six legs. Their bodies are flattened, which allows them to hide in very small spaces in a variety of locations, including on furniture, in cracks and crevices, and electrical outlets.

Bed bugs have six legs and a pair of antennae, and they are covered in small, hard plates. Their bodies are elongated and oval-shaped, and they have two small tubes that they use to pierce the skin and suck blood. If you have a bed bug infestation contact us now!

The life cycle of a bed bug begins when an egg hatches into a nymph. Nymphs are wingless insects and translucent, and they must feed on blood in order to survive. After moulting the shed skins several times, the nymphs will eventually mature into adults.

Adult bed bugs are brown in colour and have well-developed wings. However, they rarely fly, preferring to crawl in search of a suitable host. Bed bugs feed on humans, although they will also bite animals if necessary.

Once they are in the adult stage, when feeding, the bugs insert their sharp beak into the skin and withdraw blood through a straw-like tube. Although bed bugs do not carry diseases, a bed bug bite can be painful and cause swelling and itching.

Bed bugs typically mate soon after feeding, and the female will lay up to 500 bed bug eggs over the course of her lifetime. With proper food and temperature conditions, bed bug eggs can hatch within 10 days. However, nymphs can only survive for about a week without a blood meal. As a result, bed bug infestations often go unnoticed until the population has reached maturity. If you have a bed bug infestation contact us now!

Bed Bug Behaviour

Bedbugs typically come out at night to feed on their sleeping victims. However, they can also be active during the day if they are starved for food. Bedbugs prefer to stay close to their host, which is why they often infest mattresses and bedding. They insert their long, beak-like mouthparts into the skin and withdraw blood. This feeding process usually lasts for about five minutes, after which the bed bug will return to its hiding place.

When squashed, live bed bugs leave reddish-brown stains on surfaces. This is due to their bed bug excrement, which contains partially digested blood meal. Bedbugs are not known to carry diseases, but their bite marks can be itchy and uncomfortable.

Bed bugs can live for several months without food, and they can survive at a wide range of temperatures, making them difficult to eradicate. If you think you have bedbugs in your home, contact a pest control professional to get rid of a bedbug infestation.

How to treat Bed Bug bites

Bed bug bites can be notoriously difficult to treat, as they often become extremely itchy and can lead to secondary infections. However, there are a few things you can do to alleviate the symptoms and speed up the healing process.

First, it's important to clean the bite area with soap and water to remove any dirt or saliva that may be present. This will also help to reduce the risk of infection.

Next, apply a cool compress to the area to help reduce swelling and itching. You can also try applying a topical antihistamine or calamine lotion to further relieve itching.

Finally, be sure to keep the area clean and dry, as wet or humid conditions can make bed bug bites even more irritated. If you follow these simple steps, you should be able to quickly heal your bed bug bites.

  • Inspect secondhand furniture and clothing before bringing it into your home.
  • Inspect your hotel room beds for bedbugs before unpacking, and keep your luggage off the floor and away from the bed during your stay.
  • regularly inspect cracks and crevices in furniture and walls for signs of bed bugs
  • regularly vacuum and steam-clean your carpets and upholstered furniture. This will help to remove any bedbugs that may already be in your home, as well as prevent new ones from taking up residence. 
  • keeping your home clean and clutter-free. Bedbugs thrive in cluttered environments and poor hygiene, so decluttering will help to make your home less attractive to them.
  • steam clean your mattress and box spring every six months
  • wash all of your linens in heat treatment water every few weeks

By following these tips, you can help prevent a small infestation of bed bugs in your home.

Difference between bed bug bites and flea bites

Bed bug bites

Though both bed bug bites and flea bites can be intensely itchy and irritating, there are some key differences between the two. For one, bed bugs are usually found in mattresses and bedding, whereas fleas are often found in carpeting and upholstery.

Flea bites

Additionally, bed bug bites tend to be larger and more spaced out than flea bites. Flea bites, on the other hand, are usually smaller and grouped together in clusters.
Finally, bed bug bites typically appear on exposed skin, such as the arms or legs, whereas flea bites often occur on parts of the body that are covered by clothing.
By understanding these key distinctions, you can better identify the source of your bite and take appropriate measures to eliminate it.

How is Bed Bug Treatment performed

Our pest control operator will use chemical control and treatment methods to kill bed bugs. Chemicals that will be used are a non-repellent residual pesticide. Chemicals will stay for more than 6 months and bed bugs don't know that the chemical is there. So just crawling over the residual will cause them to be infected and then die. An aerosol will be used to flush out bed bugs in nooks and crannies. Repeated treatments may be needed for killing bed bugs in large numbers.

Spray all carpeted areas
Spray in all timber furniture nooks/crannies
Spray under furniture
Spray mattress seams
Spray rugs
