Bed Bugs

 

Habitat

Most infestations are found in domestic premises, although hotels, hospitals, prisons etc are also likely habitats. Infestations usually centre around the bed but are not limited to it. Able to survive for long periods without feeding, the bedbug is translocated in laundry, luggage, clothes and on human hosts.

Biology

Mating takes place away from the host, the female attaching up to 200 eggs to the structure in small numbers . Temperatures above 10°c must be available for hatch. Nymphal stages resemble adults, and pass through approx 5 moults before reaching adulthood (6 – 18 months). All nymphal stages feed on mammalian blood

Pest Status

The bed bug is an important public health pest, having worldwide distribution, and feeding on human hosts while they sleep and is characterised as one of the more unpleasant pests.
