They usually lay their eggs in cracks and small wooden holes, on furniture or baseboards. During the day, bed bugs hide and during the night they become more active.
The most frequent signs of infestation are bloodstains on walls, bedding, drapes or other light-colored materials. At the beginning of an infestation, the bed bugs are confined to the bed area, next to the sheets. If treatment is not started quickly, the pest migrates to wall outlets, paintings, furniture and other objects. Therefore, immediate control is extremely important to prevent proliferation.
The sting of bed bugs may or may not be severe. Some people don’t feel any discomfort, others have allergic reactions: swelling at the sting site and itching. However, these insects are potential vectors for the transmission of hepatitis B and other venereal diseases. There is no knowledge of virus transmission, however scientists believe this pest is a potential problem.
