Bedbugs are small insects. They live on human and animal's blood. Adult bedbugs are flat and their size is the same as the apple seed. But when they eat, they become reddish and their size increases. They don’t fly, but they can move very fast over the ceiling, floor or other surfaces. Female bedbugs can lay hundreds eggs. Bedbugs that are immature, must change their skins 5 times in order to reach the full size. They are called nymphs. Before each shedding, they need a blood meal. In a month, they can reach their full size and in a year, they can reproduce 3-4 times.

You can get bedbugs into a home, when you re replacing furniture or with your clothes and other items. Because they have flat body, they can fit into very small homes. They don’t have nests, but bedbugs live in groups, in hiding places. The common places where you can find them are: bed frames, box springs and mattresses.

Bedbugs usually bite at night, when a person is sleeping. Their bites are undetected and they last from 3 to 10 minutes. After that, they go away unnoticed. At first, bites are painless and people usually don’t notice them, but later they become itchy welts. Fleas will bite only areas around the ankles, but bedbugs can bite any area of skin that is revealed to them. Also, their bites don’t have the red spots. In order to determine do you have a bedbug’s infestation, you will have to find bedbugs. Many people don’t know they have an infestation and they attribute bites to mosquitoes. One of the signs is blood stains on your pillow and bedding.
