Bed bugs are parasites that feed on the blood of warm blooded animals. Adult bed bugs are reddish-brown with oval shaped flattened bodies. They are approximately 4-5 mm long and can be seen by the naked eye. The nymphs, or newly hatched bed bugs, are lighter in color, often translucent, and are about the size of a pin head. This makes the nymphs harder to see without the aid of a microscope.
At present, bed bug infestations are on the rise and even becoming an epidemic. A sanitized and clean environment does not directly prevent bed bugs. Any hotel (even those with a five star rating), condominium, apartment complex, dormitory structure, or private home is easily susceptible to a bed bug infestation despite their cleanliness. Bed bugs have even been found in movie theaters, ambulances, hospitals, doctors’ offices, buses, trains, and airplanes. Bed bugs simply hitch a ride from place to place by hiding in luggage, boxes, furniture, household items and décor, on clothing, and just about any other spot or crevice that they can find. Just a few stowaway bed bugs can create a colony of thousands within weeks. So, all types of residential and commercial properties are at risk of getting bed bugs.
Bed bugs may leave itchy and sometimes painful red bumps, welts, or rash-like wounds on the skin of adults and children. Reactions to bites vary from person to person depending upon how allergic a given individual is to the bed bug saliva injected at the time of feeding. Keep in mind that some less allergic people may not react to bites at all. Other evidence of bed bugs that you can look for are:
