Everything You Need to Know About Bedbugs – And How Pest Control on the East Rand Can Help You Get a Good Night’s Sleep Again

There is nothing as devastating and insidious as a bedbug infestation. They are for the most part invisible and make their presence in the home known by snacking on its inhabitants’ legs, arms and other fleshy parts of the body. It sounds disgusting, because it is. Bedbugs are relentless, and you can yield to unrelenting efforts to get rid of them, only for them to resurface a few weeks or months later, leaving evidence of their re-emergence on your family’s limbs and extremities.

One thing is for sure, and that is that if you are suffering from a bedbug infestation, it will be a tough fight to get them out of your home. But it is not an impossible fight, and the odds are in your favour. With the help of professional pest control on the East Rand, you can take your home back from these invaders.

Here is some essential information that you need to know about this tiny, invisible enemy that you will be fighting:

What do Bedbugs Look Like?

They have flat oval bodies, with six legs. Each bug is about the size of an apple seed, and can either be reddish brown or brown.

Where are Bedbugs Found?

Bedbugs are found around the world, and are found in environments where many people move through on a given day. This includes hostels, bed and breakfast accommodations, apartments, trains and buses. People can pick up bedbugs from these and many other locations and carry them back to their own homes, bringing the pest with them inadvertently. They can easily hide in bags, clothing, bedding and luggage.

Where do These Bugs Like to Breed?

Not surprisingly, bedbugs love hanging out around the bed. Their small, flat bodies allow them to easily hide in the seams of mattresses, headboards, bed frames and other bedroom furniture, as well as in household clutter and clothing.

Bedbugs survive on blood they suck from humans. They can easily live up to a year between “meals”, which just adds to their disturbing image. Even though bedbugs don’t transmit diseases, their bites cause itching and pain. Dealing with an infestation can cause anxiety and insomnia, robbing inhabitants of their quality of life.
