Bed bugs are about half a centimeter long with a flattened, oval shaped body and are light brown in color. They are nocturnal insects that hide in cracks and crevices in the walls, in the seams of mattresses and under, behind and in cracks in the furniture. Dark stains at the edges of the mattress, caused by the bed bug excreta, accompanied by unpleasant odor are a sure sign of infestation.
Bed bugs can be very dangerous pests considering their blood-feeding nature. Although they do not carry any diseases as such, constant bug bites are not only annoying but also emotionally distressing. They could also cause itchy welts that are not only a cause for discomfort, but could also result in secondary infection in the wounds. Bed bugs generally gain entry into your home through furniture or luggage carried from a place of infestation, especially from hotel rooms. It’s a good idea to check all mattresses and furniture for any signs of infestation before bringing them home.
