Where do they live?
Bedbugs are found wherever human beings sleep within
a property. They can be carried into the home on luggage brought
in after a stay in an infested hotel or dwelling. Bedbugs can
also enter the home on second hand furniture and in very rare
cases on a persons clothes. They are nocturnal and spend most
of their time hiding in areas like floor cracks, under carpets
and behind loose wallpaper. They commonly appear in the seams
piping and buttonhs of bed matresses and bedroom furniture.
They feed exclusively on blood, normally every
3 - 4 days and generally only in darkness.
Signs of Infestation
Other than live sightings, evidence of faecal marks
on bed linen and bed frames can be signs of infestation. If there
are bedbugs in significant numbers an unpleasant almond like smell
may be detected in infested rooms.
How to get rid of bedbugs
Treatment must be thorough and should be carried
out by a professional.
