Well let’s start with what they are and how to identify them. The technical name for these pesky bugs is ‘Cimex lectularius’. These blood thirsty pests are considered a public health pest by the Centers for Disease Control (CDC), Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) and United States Department of Agriculture (USDA). Although these pesky creatures are a public health pest, they are not known to spread disease but some people have had an allergic reaction.
This doesn’t mean you should just ignore bed bugs or not take the problem seriously. They can cause other public health issues so it is vitally important to prevent and control these pests.
There has been an bigger bed bug problem in the United States in recent years. Experts attribute the increased problem to more travel, lack of public education, bed bugs becoming resistant to pesticides and ineffective control practices.
The first step is knowing what to look for – Other bugs can be mistaken for bed bugs. So to avoid a long and expensive treatment for the wrong bug let’s first learn how to identify them.
Bed bug eggs are about the size of a pinhead, are pearl white in color and have dark eye spot on them if they are more than five days old. Nymphs or young bed bugs are small yellowish white in color and transulcent. If they haven’t fed recently they can be almost impossible to see without a magnifying glass. Adult bed bugs range from 3/16 to 1/4 inch long and are brown in color. They have a flat oval shape to them if they have not fed recently. If they have fed recently, they will be a reddish brown in color and be ballon like and more elongated. When you look more closely you’ll be able to see a beak with 3 segements, an antenna, wings that are not used for flying and short hairs that are golden in color.
You’ll also notice a smelly, musty odor that is sometimes considered to be a musty sweet odor that is produced from the glands underneath the bug.
Bed Bugs feed are nighttime creatures and feed at night. But they adapt to your sleeping habits and will feed during the day if that is when you are available for them. Bites are generally painless and most times individuals are not aware they’ve been bitten for a few days. Bites will often look like mosquito bites, reddish color, slight swelling and itchy. Although an allergic reaction to the bite will be more irritating and could cause greater swelling. The longer and more you are bitten the greater the reaction, more intense swelling and itching.
Bed bugs feed for about 10 minutes before they return to their hiding place. This is why they can go unnoticed for days and sometimes weeks.
