Bedbugs are international travellers and can infest your home or business premise through suitcases, clothing or furniture. Similar to the flea; bed bugs feed on warm blooded animals and often leave a itchy bite mark.
Bedbugs are aptly named, as they tend to live near their food source, i.e your bed, where they can easily feed during your sleep. They can live in mattresses, bed frames, headboards and any small crack or crevice and can survive for up to 1 year without a food source. This makes bed bugs difficult to eradicate long term with DIY products.
Unlike the flea, bedbugs can be seen with the eye and grow as large as 5mm in length. You will see bedbugs crawling as they do not jump or fly.
