Bed Bugs: "Blood Suckers"
Bed bugs are night biters and attracted by carbon dioxide and body heat. Their bites caused itchy swells and often disrupt human's sleep. While commonly found in bed frames or mattresses, they can spread to multiple small crevices and hiding places as infestation grows. A single female bed bug lay up to 5 eggs daily, this fast reproduction makes them one of the most difficult pests to get rid off.
BED BUGS' FACTS
Adult bed bugs (Cimex lectularius) are around 0.5cm long with oval, reddish-brown flat body. They are wingless and possess long, slender legs and antennae. They develop from egg to adult via a process called "gradual metamorphosis” meaning the last larval stage develops directly into an adult without passing through a non-feeding pupae stage.
The recent decade have seen a surge in bed bugs infestation globally. Singapore, an international city has similar been hit hard, with home dwellings, hotels and many lodging establishments affected by them. As both male & female bed bugs require blood in order to reproduce and complete their life cycle, they are famous as annoying biting pests. While the bites are often not painful, they produce itchy red welts and often disrupt human’s sleep and make us irritable
It is often mistaken that bed bugs only infest places with low hygiene or housekeeping. Instead, the truth is that bed bugs are spread through humans or our belongings when we accidentally visited a place that is infested and transport them to a new place. All it takes is one bed bug hiding in your bag, luggage or clothing or a female bed bug depositing some eggs into them and an infestation will occur at the new place.
As bed bug’s life cycle is short and the female adult bug lays up to 5 eggs per day, it is important to seek professional help as soon as you discover their presence to prevent the infestation from growing out-of-hand.
