Bed Bugs ( Cimex lectularis ) are nocturnal insects that feed on the blood of humans and other mammals. As they are active at night time, they hide away in cracks and crevices around the room during daylight hours. These hiding places can be in the frame joints of beds, drawer units or wardrobes, under or behind skirting boards and behind cracks and crevices in wallpaper seams. The bed bugs come out to feed every few days and that's when you may become aware that you have a problem.

Bed Bugs grow to about 6mm in length, are oval in shape and the colour can range from reddish brown to mahogany.

Originally associated with poor housing, these insect pests have become far more common in recent years partly due to worldwide travel. A hotel or hostel may have an infestation and the insects can then be transferred back to your home in luggage or on clothing. Bed bugs can also be transported to new surroundings in second hand furniture or bedding.  Also busy transport systems such as buses, trains and planes are where these pests can transfer from  personal clothing or belongings of one person to another person. Busy shops or at the theatre are other places where you can pick up a bed bug!

Although not known to be carriers of disease, bed bug bites can be irritating and may cause an allergic reaction in some people. Not surprising that having bed bugs in the home is something to be taken seriously and eradicating bed bugs is a priority.
