bed-bugs1Bedbugs are parasites that feed on human blood and are found all over the world. They increased in the developed world after the decline of bedbug incidences in the early20th century. Increased foreign travel, immigration and increased resistance to pests might be responsible for the resurgence. Bedbugs are segmented with microscopic hairs. They resemble booklice, carpet beetles and small cockroaches.The adults are brown and oval shaped and close to 5 millimeters long. They belong to the kingdom Animalia and phylum arthropoda. They feed on human and animal blood. Their habitat is in warm houses and near or inside beds. Bedbugs are not exclusively nocturnal creatures but function highly at night. Bedbugs can cause skin rashes and other allergic symptoms. Houses become infected from infested items and wild animals. Signs of bed bug infestations include fecal spots, blood smears on bed sheets and empty exoskeletons on the bed sheets. They usually live in congregates.
They reside in furniture, luggages and inside vehicles. Bedbugs live also on cats and dogs. They smell like rotten strawberries. Various methods are used to eradicate bed bugs. Heating treatments, bed bug detection dogs and a combination treatment of heat and drying. The heat and drying combination works best. There has been an increased resistance to pesticides lately. Bedbugs also have predators that hunt them. Mites, centipedes, cockroaches and masked hunter insects. They communicate using pheromones. They survive wide temperature ranges and get their moisture from water vapor.They are attracted to hosts by carbon di oxide and the warmth of bodies and feed mainly on the face, neck and arms. They can survive long days without food. Bedbugs pierce the skin of their hosts with their maxillae and mandibles. Reproduction is by traumatic insemination also known as hypodermic insemination in which the male species pierces the female species abdomen with its penis and injects sperm through the wound into the abdomen. The wound in the abdomen might be infected and hazardous to the female’s health. The life stages of bedbugs are 5 immature nymph stages and one mature adult stage. They shed their exoskeletons through a process called ecdysis and molt six times before they become adults. Female bedbugs are capable of laying hundreds of eggs in their lifetime which are very tiny.There has been a pandemonium of bedbugs in recent years and after a meal they swell up and are red in color. They do not fly but more very quickly and live in crevices. They feed from approximately 2 to 10 minutes and prefer sleeping hosts. Itching and wefts are signs of a bed bug bite. It is advised that people place their clothes in a drier for at least 15 minutes upon returning home to kill bed bugs. The most common bedbug is the Cimex lectularius an all bedbugs belong to the family Cimicidae.
