Bed bug control services
Cimex lectularius or otherwise bedbug. Its color is light brown to reddish-brown. Bedbugs feed exclusively on blood, mainly by humans, which is why the bed covers the largest percentage of the areas where they appear (due to inactivity), but can be detected in many other places. Simply put, the bed bug can be on the couch, behind your picture frames, in your luggage, inside your vehicles, in your furniture, in your sockets, or anywhere in your home.
The notion that bedbugs are related to poor personal hygiene and poor house cleaning is not substantiated, because bedbugs do not discriminate between “clean” and “dirty” areas. There is no research to prove that bedbugs can be carriers of harmful diseases.
Bedbugs and allergies
On the other hand, research shows that these insects can worsen allergies and asthma. Bedbug bites vary from person to person. According to studies, bites often occur in triads, but can also occur scattered.
Bedbugs are attracted to the temperature of the human body and especially to the carbon dioxide they exhale. The big problem with bed bugs is that they can be present in your area, even if you can’t see them. In fact, if there is a low level of infection in the body, it is very likely that you will not be able to see the “signs”. The heat kills bed bugs.
The stages of his life are nymphs and adults. The nymphs can survive for weeks without receiving a blood meal, while the adult insect can live for more than five months without feeding.
Bug colonies are made in various ways, such as:
- with people carrying adult insects or eggs accidentally brought from another infected home in the clothes or luggage of a visiting person
- contaminated objects (such as furniture, clothes or backpacks)
- with passages from nearby areas that are infested
- with animals, pets or not, that can host bed bugs
