Professional bed bug control is important to avoid infestations
The common bed bug is visible to the naked eye and is becoming quite a common pest throughout Australia. Adult bed bugs are brown to reddish-brown, oval-shaped and flattened. Their flat shape enables them to readily hide in cracks and crevices throughout the home. After a blood meal, usual from a person, dog, cat etc the body of the bed bug elongates and becomes swollen. Bed bugs will lay eggs after a blood meal and are normally found on and around surfaces near where the host sleeps.
Fecal and bloody spots (looks like rust) are left on sheets and pillowcases when the engorged bed bugs are crushed. These indicators serve as sure signs of infestation. Bed bugs prefer to hide in cracks and crevices during the daytime and come out to feed on the host’s blood at night, usually while the host is sleeping. They can also spread to adjacent rooms or apartments.
