What Are Bed Bugs?    

“Don’t let the bedbugs bite.” you may have heard this common saying, it stems from a time when most habitats were infested with this small pest. 

There are three species of bedbug that bite humans.

1.Cimex lectularius-  the most widespread and is the species most people will have encountered. 

2.C. Hemipterus- which is found mostly in tropical climates 

3.Leptocimex boueti- which is a species restricted to Africa to West Africa.

All of these species of bed bugs evolved from creatures that fed on bats and some cave-dwelling birds. Caves are excellent refuges and early humans most likely started using them hundreds of thousands or millions of years ago for shelter. It was at this time that ancient species of the bedbugs started using humans as a source of food to sustain them. 

C. lectularius is the most important bedbug species from a pest perspective. This is the species of bed bug that inhabits most homes in the Greater Toronto Area, whenever the term bed bug is used in North America the likelihood is high that we are talking about C. lectularius.

Zoologically, the bedbug is a small, flat, wingless creature. Adult Bed Bugs range in size from 3 mm to 5 millimeters. Like other lecherous bugs their mouths are adapted for piercing and sucking.


Bed Bugs spend most of each day hidden in small cracks and crevices, but with the dawn when their human quarry is in a deep slumber, they emerge to feed on human blood.


What are the Signs of a Bed Bug Infestation?

Bed bugs are flat and 3-5 mm in size, this allows them to easily hide from sight when  they are inactive during the daye. They are prone to hiding in mattresses, bed frames, bedding, furniture, carpets, baseboards and other clutter in bedrooms. The most common place to find them is in the seams of mattresses or inside box springs. 

You don't need to locate a bedbug to identify that there's an infestation. Their dropps leave brown to black stains on mattresses and linens, and bloodstains may be visible where bed bugs have been accidentally crushed.  

Bed Bugs spend most of each day hidden in small cracks and crevices, but with the dawn when their human quarry is in a deep slumber, they emerge to feed on human blood.

What are the feeding habits of Bed Bugs?

Bed Bugs locate a human using carbon dioxide and heat emitted by our natural body functions. When they have found a suitable place to feed on a person’s body, they plunge their sharp mouthparts into their victim’s skin. 

Bed Bugs inject an anesthetic into their victim’s bloodstream so the victim is not aware of what is happening. They also inject an anticoagulant to prevent blood from clotting as it passes through their narrow feeding tube. In a single feeding session, a bedbug can ingest three times its own bodyweight in blood. Once engorged, and swollen from its meal it returns to its hiding places to digest its meal. 

Blood, although high in protein, lacks other nutrients, so the bedbug has a pair of specialized organs, called mycetomes that contain symbiotic bacteria responsible for supplementing the bug’s blood diet with the nutrients it needs. A bed bug’s efficient digestion of its blood meals allows bedbugs to go without food for at least 18 months.

   

What are the signs of Bed Bug bites?

Bed bugs feed primarily on blood which acts as their only source of nutrition. To mature into adults, bedbugs must feed once during each of the prior stages of their lifecycle. Adult females require blood in order to produce eggs. Although bedbugs do bite humans, they do not transmit diseases directly, but their bites can get infected causing people to get sick. 

Blood spots found on your sheets, bites and the presence of bed bug excrement and cast skins provide an indications of a bed bug infestation. Bites are commonly found on the parts of the body that are more prone to be exposed to bed bugs during sleep - the hands, neck, face, shoulders, legs and arms.

Bed bug bites are often concentrated in a small area and at times may occur in a line or a zigzag pattern. Bites normally look like small, flat or raised areas that may become inflamed, itchy, red or blistered. Reactions to bites don’t always appear immediately after you’re bitten and may take a few days to begin causing symptoms.
