An Introduction to the Blood Sucking Bed Bug

Bed bugs are the only pests that need humans for their survival as they feed on human blood. They are known to be human parasites and our survival is vital to them. Bed bugs have been living with humans since our earliest existence. Now, a bed bug is not known for transmitting any kind of disease or disease-carrying bacteria or viruses. But then scientifically speaking, it would not be wise for them to cause sickness to their only food supply which can lead to the supply’s disappearance. The existence of bedbugs is unpredictable because they can be found anywhere such as in residential places, commercial areas, hotels, and many more for which you do not need to be worried. We at TechSquadTeam, one of the leading providers of bed bug pest control services in Bangalore, want everyone to understand what exactly these little creatures are and get a clear picture as to what these vermin are capable of doing. It’s always astute to know more about the enemy and also they have different forms during their various life stages. Let’s discuss a few facts about these pests. 

Bed bugs are primarily divided into two species of insects Cimex lectularius and Cimex hemipterus. Both these species can be found in your house. They can range from 1mm to 7mm in size. These bugs are considered a public health pest by the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), the United States Department of Agriculture (USDA), and the Centre for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC). They normally, spread between nearby locations by crawling or by being carried from one infected place to another in personal items or through pets.

They can be very hard to identify and find because they mostly hide in concealed locations like the mattress seams or cracks in the wall. They always operate in darkness and hide once light fall on them. A bed bug infestation is not caused due to a lack of sanitary conditions but once infested, sanitary conditions can matter a lot as messy houses or environments can help these tiny pests to hide well and make the place their breeding ground. They are also known to be found in high-density areas like densely populated metropolitans such as Bangalore. So it’s better to call up some professional and reliable pest control services in Bangalore to care about the situation than to get into it yourself.

Bed bug bites are responsible for several health issues like skin rashes, psychological effects, and allergic symptoms. Most people face rashes and itchiness on their skins after coming in contact with these pesky pests. Some might even feel tired and can get a fever. Generally, the bed bugs bite three times in a row and attack mainly on the uncovered areas of the body. Few people might even get seriously affected by having areas of dead skin or vasculitis after frequent bed bug bites.

Purging out these bed bugs from your house is not an easy job because they can survive up to a year without feeding. You can treat your house by heating the room up to 50 degrees Celsius for more than 90 minutes, washing your clothes in warm water, frequently vacuuming the house and if the infestation is major then using organic pesticides to eradicate these vermin from your home.
