BED BUGS CAN SURVIVE A YEAR WITHOUT FOOD I.E. HUMAN BLOOD.
Description: Bed Bugs also known as Cimex lectulariusbed are small oval insects 1.5 inch in size. They are reddish brown in color and feed on the host/humans blood. They are generally active at night, and pierce the skin to suck in the blood. Bed Bug Infestation is very complex and requires expert help for complete Bed Bug Extermination.
Life Cycle: Bed Bugs are active at night and hide during day time. Females lay white, oval eggs into cracks. A female Bed Bug can lay around 200 to 250 eggs in her lifetime. The eggs take around 10 days to hatch and the new bed bug nymphs require a blood meal. There may be three or more generations of bugs in a year. In general, the adult Bed Bugs can live for about ten to eleven months feeding every 3 to 5 days.
Type of Damage: Bed Bugs don’t spread any major disease. However their bites can cause serious irritation that vary from person to person. Where some people do not experience any irritation or reaction, some get small, slightly raised red itchy spots and even severe pain sometimes. Most children and elderly are particularly at risk for more serious reactions from Bed Bug Bites. One elderly man we helped had been in need of a blood transfusion as he had lost so much blood due to the Extreme Infestation he had been left alone in his home with. People may have instant reaction from the Bed Bug bite or experience that after 14 or 15 days. Everyone is different.
