Reasons To Treat: Bed Bugs

What are bed bugs?

Bed bugs are ectoparasites which feed on blood. They must feed on warm blooded animals and hosts include bats and birds.

There are a number of closely related species. They are all small (adults 3-6 mm in length) with an oval shaped body. They are flattened to allow them to squeeze into cracks and crevices. Adults are red brown in colour.

They exhibit incomplete metamorphosis. Each nymphal stage has to take a blood meal before it can reach the next stage of its life cycle.

Nymphs tend to be lighter in colour and darken during each stage of development.

They are not considered to be important factor in disease transmission.

The most important and most common pest is the common bed bug Cimex lectularius.

Why do we want to control them?

Until the mid 20th century bed bugs were very common in the UK and Ireland. With improved standards of living conditions, improved pest control products and legislation (Public Health Act), their incidence decreased. Until relatively recently they were fairly uncommon. However over the past 10 years we have seen a resurgence due to a number of reasons:-

They are now a significant problem in hotels, guest houses and hostels. They are also commonly found in domestic property.
