Bed Bug Detection & Habits
Bed bugs are small, wingless insects that feed on people (or animals in a pinch). Bed bugs get their name because they like to hide in bedding and mattresses, but bed bugs can live on the nightstand, your headboard, luggage, clothing, carpets and just about any place where humans are regularly present. They are nocturnal and very hardy. They travel by hitchhiking on you or on your clothes, luggage, and furniture until they find a new source of food.
A bed bug does not actually live under your skin, but will simply drink a few drops of blood while you are sleeping. You cannot feel its bite, even though it is actually piercing the skin. Although some saliva will get into the bite, bed bugs are not known to pass on any diseases to humans. Bed bug bites often cause redness and some swelling. Approximately half of bed bug victims do not show any evidence of bites.
Bed bugs are about 3/8" long and are visible to the naked eye. Amazingly, though, they are able to go a long time without any food if necessary; sometimes, as long as a year. When they are gorged with blood, the females will lay eggs - up to two hundred at a time.
Since their reappearance, researchers have found that the new bed bugs are much more resistant to chemicals that have previously been in use. Insecticides that are often used for roaches and similar insects do not work on bed bugs, which is another reason they are at large again.
