Bed Bugs

Don't Let the Bed Bugs Bite!

Bedbugs are reddish-brown, oval, flattish insects that are 4-5mm long and 1.5-3mm wide before feeding. Once they've fed the engorged adults tend to be swollen and red. Bedbugs are parasitic bloodsucking insects and their preferred hosts are humans, though they will settle for many other warm blooded animals. The parasites hide in cracks or mattresses during the day and emerge at night to feed, they inject saliva as they feed and the allergic reaction to this material causes delayed swelling, itching and burning.
