Bedbugs again today. People always ask me, how have I got bedbugs? It’s a good question with many answers. In fact, you could wash your sheets every day for the whole year and you can still get them.
I always say to people, what’s the first thing you do when you arrive on holiday with your case? You of course throw it on the bed. Then what’s the first thing you do when you get home with the case? Yep it’s thrown on the bed again.
Only takes for one to climb into your case on a infected bed then climb out straight onto your bed and that’s the start of an infestation.
People generally see dark spots on sheets (their faeces, human blood) or bite marks on our skin. Bedbugs don’t have nests, they hide in groups in bed frames, headboards, skirting boards, plug sockets.
Bedbugs are small, oval shape, brown colour, live on the blood from us. Size is around a apple seed size, once fed they become slightly larger and dark reddish brown.
Bedbugs do not fly however they move quickly between floors, walls and ceilings. Female bedbugs may lay hundreds of eggs over a lifetime, these are half a millimetre or smaller.
During the life cycle the shed their skin around 5 times, depending on living conditions they can develop fully in one month. Generally produce three or fours generations once a year.
