Important facts about bed bugs
These pests are difficult to detect because of their size. In fact, fully grown adults only measure around 5mm. Their bodies are almost completely flat and this makes it easy for them to squeeze into hard to reach places.
Bed bugs also change colour. Normally they are brown, but after feeding they turn purple. What’s more, they can actually survive for more than a year without food. In addition to this, they are nocturnal feeders which is why sleeping humans are so often victims.
Bed bug control is also tough because of their reproductive strategies. Bed bugs prefer to lay their eggs on flat surfaces, and these are often transported to other areas. For example, they may lay eggs on your pyjamas, which you then pack into luggage. In this way you can inadvertently transport bed bugs back to your home.
