Bedbugs have a negative impact on the health and quality of life of the people who live there. They sting them and cause them a lot of anxiety, in addition to stinging them. Do you have any doubts that these insects are present in your home? The following are some criteria for correctly identifying these little animals:

  1. A bed insect can be seen with the naked eye. It is around the size of an apple seed as an adult, measuring between 4 and 7 millimeters.
  2. Because of the blood they consume, bedbugs have a reddish-brown appearance.
  3. They don't jump, fly, and move like ants.
  4. Bed bugs are active at night and are commonly found in rooms, mattresses, and box springs.
  5. Bedbug faeces can leave little black patches on the linens
  6. White eggs, placed in clusters, are also left by bedbugs. 

A few preventive actions can be taken to prevent bedbugs from entering your home. If you're buying used clothes or furniture, for example, be sure they're free of bedbugs. When traveling, be cautious: don't leave your clothes on the hotel bed or in the drawers; double-check your suitcase and its contents when you return. If you live in a shared apartment, seal the cracks in the walls.

Bedbug bites have profound implications 

The bed bug is a biting insect of Cimex lectularius that feeds on human blood. Bedbugs, which were abundant in dwellings around the turn of the twentieth century, began to decline after WWII, owing to increased hygiene and the usage of insecticides. On the other hand, bedbugs have been making a resurgence in affluent countries since the 1990s, independent of hygiene. 

You are bitten by bedbugs while sleeping. These bites cause various symptoms, depending on the individual: tiny red pimples, itching, redness, and even allergic reactions. Make sure you don't mix them up with flea or mosquito bites. Do not hesitate to see your doctor, who may prescribe anti-itch therapy. To prevent being infected, try not to scratch oneself. The presence of bedbugs can also cause anxiety and sleep problems, so it is essential to treat this problem effectively.
