Bedbugs have many effects on the human population

 

  • They drink our blood and in severe cases can cause Anemia.
  • Bedbugs harbor in one of the areas we find most comfortable, our bed.
  • bedbugs can cause a feeling of getting bitten and itchy for a time after the infestation is eradicated (delusional parasitosis).
  • Bedbugs can cause a financial imposition, especially if not dealt with quickly and correctly.

Bedbugs are parasitic insects that live exclusively on blood, they prefer human blood. Bedbugs seem to prefer staying on or close to the human host where they sleep thus the name bedbug. Bedbugs are nocturnal creatures (only come out at night) so they do their feeding at night while you sleep.You cannot feel its bite due to the bedbugs ability to anesthetize the skin and thin the blood so they can feed. Fluids from the bedbugs can transfer to the human host, fortunately bed bugs are not known to be a vector of any diseases to humans unlike ticks or mosquitoes.

Description

A mature bed bug is an oval-bodied insect, brown to red-brown in color, wingless, and flattened top to bottom. Unfed bugs are 1/4 to 3/8 inch long, and the upper surface of the body has a crinkled appearance. A bug that has recently fed is engorged with blood, dull red in color, and the body is elongated and swollen. Eggs are white, and are about 1/32 inch long. Newly hatched bugs are nearly colorless.

Life Cycle

Bed bugs undergo a gradual metamorphosis (change in form) and the young resemble the adult. The young are called nymphs. Under ideal conditions bugs feed regularly when temperatures are above 70° F. Eggs are deposited in batches of from 10 to 50 in crevices of bed frames, floors, walls and similar household sites. When fresh, the eggs are coated with a sticky substance that causes them to adhere to any object on which they are deposited. Eggs are not deposited at temperatures lower than 50° F. Eggs hatch in 6 to 17 days but may take as long as 28 days in cooler temperatures. The nymphs begin to feed as soon as they can locate a host. They molt 5 times before reaching maturity and the nymphal period lasts about 6 weeks. There may be up to three generations per year in our climate.
