Bed bugs are tiny insects in the genus Cimex. They feed during the night and bite victims can experience psychological and skin rashes. Bites can also be visible as prominent blisters or small red areas. Those affected may also develop allergic reactions. However, it is not necessary to worry if you only see a few small bedbug bites. If you notice a large number of them, you need to get them treated immediately.
A single female bedbug will lay one to two eggs per day. The eggs are whitish in color and hard to see without a magnification. They are sticky and hatch in about a week at room temperature. The newly emerged nymphs are straw-colored and shed their skin five times before they reach maturity. After feeding, the female bedbug will lay hundreds of eggs. It is vital to remove the infested items as soon as you notice them.
While there are several precautions you can take to get rid of bedbugs, the most effective method is to discard infested items. These items should be discarded if they have holes or tears. Using plastic wrapping will prevent the pests from dispersing from a piece of clothing. Moreover, marking or defacing belongings will discourage others from picking them up and spread the infestation. If you have a lot of possessions, you should dispose of them.
