Bedbugs: See What Bites Look Like and Learn the Treatment

Bedbugs Bedbugs Overview

A bedbug is a small, blood-sucking parasite that feeds on mammals and birds. Bedbugs belong to the insect family Cimicidae, and although there are several different species, the most common species associated with human infestations are Cimex lectularius and Cimex hemipterus. There has been a recent resurgence in bedbug infestations worldwide, particularly in developed countries, including the United States.

Adult bedbugs are reddish brown in color, flat, oval-shaped, and approximately 4-5 millimeters in length. Immature bedbugs (nymphs) may be translucent or light tan in color. Bedbugs are often more red in color after feeding. Bedbugs are attracted by warmth, and they generally feed during the night, often just before dawn. They tend to feed every five to 10 days, though they can survive without feeding for several months. Bedbugs pierce the skin and inject saliva which contains anesthetics and anticoagulants into the host which often make their bites painless initially. After feeding on the host’s blood for several minutes, bedbugs will retreat to their hiding place. They will generally try to remain within close range of their warm-blooded host. Affected individuals may feel and see the consequences of the bedbug bite sometime afterward. Though bedbug transmission of human diseases is theoretically possible, it has not yet been definitively established.

Bedbugs: See What Bites Look Like and Learn the Treatment

Bed Bugs: Department of Health

Bed bugs are insects that feed on blood and can survive months without feeding. Their bites are often itchy, and sometimes painful.

Bed bugs are a growing problem everywhere. By spraying for insects less often, and using less dangerous chemicals when we do spray, our homes are safer for our families but also less toxic for bed bugs.

Bed bugs are hitchhikers. They travel by hiding in luggage, clothing, beds or furniture. This can make bed bugs a special problem for hotels, apartments, and when using second-hand furniture. Once bed bugs are introduced, they spread from room to room throughout a building. Keeping a clean home can limit cockroach and rodent problems, but will have little effect on bed bugs.

People sensitive to bites can have a raised, red swelling at each bite site or may develop a sensitivity that can include nervousness, and sleeplessness. Symptoms may also appear several days after being bitten. Bed bugs’ feces, casings, and other materials can be asthma triggers in some people. Although bed bugs feed on blood, there is no evidence that bed bugs transmit disease.

Bed bugs vary in size, and in color, from a red-brown to a light brown. Adult bed bugs are 1/4 inch, or about the width of a pencil.

Bed bugs move quickly. The females lay eggs in cracks and other hidden areas. The eggs appear tiny, white, and are hard to see without a magnifying glass. Bed bugs are active at night and hide within 5 to 20 feet of where people sleep. They tend to gather in tiny crevices and other places, especially in mattresses, box springs, and head-boards.

Seeing two or more of these signs indicates that there is a bed bug problem in that room:

Your healthcare provider may prescribe antihistamines or corticosteroids to reduce allergic reactions, and/or suggest the use of antiseptic or antibiotic ointments to prevent infection.

It is best to hire a professional pest control firm. They will carefully inspect all places where bed bugs may hide and use an approved insect spray in cracks and other hiding places. Do not use any insecticide on a mattress unless the label specifically discusses application to a mattress. Most household sprays are not suitable for application to mattresses. Any infected items like mattresses or upholstered furniture must be thrown out or treated. Treatments must be very thorough or bed bugs will soon be back. Methods to control bedbugs populations include:

To make sure that bed bugs dont come back, you should:

The Rhode Island Housing Maintenance and Occupancy Code states that if the infestation is limited to a single dwelling unit, extermination is the responsibility of the occupant. However, if the infestation exists in two or more units, or in shared or public areas of a building with two or more units, then extermination is the responsibility of the building owner. Contact the Minimum Housing Program of your city or town if your landlord or building owner has not addressed a bed bug infestation that involves a common area or two or more units.

What are bed bugs? How do I know if I have bed bugs?

Bites and Concerns

Bed bugs usually bite people at night while they are sleeping. They feed by piercing the skin with an elongated beak through which they withdraw blood. Engorgement takes about three to 10 minutes, yet the person seldom knows they are being bitten. Bed bugs normally do not reside on people like head or body lice ? immediately after feeding they crawl off and reside elsewhere to digest their meal. Symptoms after being bitten vary with the individual. Many develop an itchy red welt or localized swelling within a day or so of the bite. Others have little or no reaction, and in some people the reaction is delayed. Unlike flea bites that occur mainly around the ankles, bed bugs feed on any skin exposed while sleeping (face, neck, shoulders, back, arms, legs, etc.). The welts and itching are often wrongly attributed to other causes, such as mosquitoes. For these reasons, infestations may go a long time unnoticed, and can become quite large before being detected. The likelihood of bed bugs increases if the affected individual has been traveling, or had acquired used beds or furnishings before symptoms started to appear. Bed bugs also are suspect if you wake up with itchy bites you did not have when you went to sleep. Conversely, it is important to recognize that not all bites or bite-like reactions are due to bed bugs.

Confirmation requires finding and identifying the bugs themselves, which often requires the help of a professional.

Why is bed bug heat treatment better than chemicals?

Thermal Remediation Heat Treatment Trailer

Historically, bed bug treatments have primarily used chemicals to reduce and control the pest. Recently, pesticides have shown to be ineffective in managing infestations with single bed bug treatments. An informal survey of pest control operators conducted by an entomologist at the University of Massachusetts found that 68% of all bedbug infestations require three or more treatments, 26% require two treatments, and 6% require just one.

Another concern with pesticide use is the development of resistance to the pesticides used in the treatment of bed bugs. The Integrated Pest Management Association found that by 1956, DDT resistance was so widespread that the control method had to be changed to Malathion. Results from current research conducted by the University of Kentucky show that bed bug resistance to insecticidal products that have pyrethroids as an active ingredient has become significant. The excessive use of pesticide solutions may result in the bed bug developing greater resistance to current methodologies. Oftentimes this leads to overcompensating by increasing amounts of chemicals. This can be a dangerous practice. Clark’s Heat Treatment is a simpler control methodology which alters a bed bugs natural environment, making it lethal to the bedbug.

Pesticides can also pose a threat to the environment. DDT was an effective chemical in significantly treating bed bug occurrences in the United States before it was banned in 1972 because of the reproductive effects to birds from chronic exposure to DDT. Bird exposure to this insecticide mainly occurs through the consumption of aquatic and/or terrestrial species that have been exposed to DDT (WHO 1989). Like other chemicals, DDT was able to work its way through the ecosystem and cause adverse health and reproductive effects to many animals in the food chain.

Finally, some people may be sensitive to chemicals as a result of neurological or other medical disorders. These people may not have the option to use chemical solutions as part of their control method. Clark’s Heat Treatmentis a non-chemical process and therefore is the practical solution for people with chemical sensitivities and is ideal for treating health care facilities, hospitals, and schools where chemicals are not an option.

Bed bugs exclusively feed on blood. Therefore, they may leave bite marks on skin when someone is sensitive to bed bug bites.

However, not everyone reacts to bed bug bites. One may live with a heavy infestation without knowing bed bugs in his bed.

I have heard that 30 60 % of people do not react to bed bug bites at all. These insensitive people may think that they do not have any bites from bed bugs. Contradictory to their beliefs, they are still getting bites just like the rest of their family members.

People can reduce or avoid bites at night, by creating a bed bug free sleeping area, which I call it a bed-bug-free island.

Bedbug free sleeping cost only $50

Visual inspection for bed bugs- Learn where to look and what to look for

A thorough visual inspection for bed bugs is a MUST. This is the best way for your protection. You need your own inspection techniques and it should be done by you. If you wait until some bed bug crawl around you, it may be too many bed bugs live with you. When in doubt, you can use passive monitoring traps that could collect bed bugs while they come out for blood feeding or for dispersal. This can be a very effective tool even when someone has a low bed bug infestation.

Signs of bed bug infestation –

Tips for detecting bed bugs in your mattress:

Look for black fecal matter. This is the first sign of bed bug infestation that you need to learn. These black fecal matters are blood stains (digested blood from bed bugs). Be preventive about bed bugs, and install encasements for both box spring and mattress. Once you have encasements, your inspection would be easier because bed bugs are living outside of the box spring (on the encasement). Therefore, you find bed bugs easily outside of the case. This will make your visual inspection more effective and accurate.

Signs of bed bugs

A hotel inspection for bed bugs –

Where are the easiest locations for you to find/ inspect bed bugs in a hotel room? Do you know where bed bugs are hiding? Bed bugs are mainly living in a mattress, a box spring, a bed frame, and a headboard. When a hotel room has a moderate level of bed bug problem, you can relatively easily inspect bed bugs hiding in a headboard. Learn and look for signs of bed bug infestation (black fecal matter of bed bug, eggs, shed skins, live or dead bed bugs).

How to inspect a hotel for bed bugs

How to inspect hotel rooms for bed bugs

How to remove/kill bed bugs –

Step One. Inspect and determine which room has bed bugs. Which room with the heaviest infestation?

Step Two. Install encasements. Encasements are covers for mattress and box spring. Bed bugs that are hiding inside of the box spring, cannot come out and bite you.

To contain bed bugs inside of the bed, you MUST use a set of TWO, one for mattress and another one for box spring.You MUST install encasement for all beds in your house. Additionally, you may want toremove and store headboard and wood bed frame. I strongly encourage you to use a metal bed frame (the simpler, the better).

Step Three. Install passive monitoring traps. To monitor live activities of bed bugs, place these traps under the legs of bed frame. Sometimes, it takes time to catch bed bugs (sometimes even 2 3 weeks); however, normally you should be able to collect some bed bugs in 3 7 days, when bed bugs are hiding nearby (for examples bedside lamp tables or surrounding structure).

Step Four. Keep the bed away from the wall and this will keep any bed bug from crawling on your bed.

Step Five. Use a clothe dryer to treat all your washable items. DO NOT wash and dry. USE your clothes dryer first to control bed bugs.

Where to report bed bug problems and ask for help

To file your complaints of bed bugs (bedbug) in North Carolina, you need to understand the nature of your complaint.

1.Hotel complaints If you have a specific complaint regarding a hotel you stayed in, you file your complaint with an Environmental Health of Local County Health Department. Prepare detail information,such asroom numbers, hotel address, and dates your stayed.

2.Tenants who report complaints against landlords If you are a tenant, disputing with your landlord on bed bug issue, you may contact and file your complaint withthe Consumer Protectionin the NC Department of Justice. Be specific that you arefiling your complaintabout your landlords (not bed bugs).

Two telephone numbers: 1-877-5-NO-SCAM (1-877-566-7226) or 919-716-6000.

3.Tenants who report housing code violations For the City of Raleigh Housing/ Environmental Division Main line number for the H/E Division 919-996-2444

Charlotte, NC bed bug call 311

Other cities in NC contact housing code inspectors

4.For general information on bed bugs North Carolina Sleep Products, NCDACS 919-733-3556

5.Structural Pest Control investigation and complaints

To file a formal complaint against your pest control company, you need to contactStructural Pest Control Investigationof North Carolina Department of Agriculture and Consumer Services.

North Carolina Dept of Agriculture & Consumer Services 1001 Mail Service Center Raleigh, N.C. 27699-1001

6.Legal Aid of North Carolina

If you are qualified for their legal help, you can certainly contact them for advice, possibly suing landlords for your damage. I believe that you need to contact an office in your area (visit their website or call them). To my understanding, the agency has more bed bug works than they can handle. Therefore, they tends to be very selective.

You need to do your jobs for possible legal disputes. Collect and preserve any written documents, pictures, and letters.

7.Adult Protective Services in County Health Departments

For Wake County, its website is the following link WakeGOV-Human Services-Adult Protective Services. Call 919-2121-7264 for additional information.

8.North Carolina Department of Labor

You can choose to file your complaints to OSH (Occupational Safety and Health Division) when you find bed bugs in your work place.

Here is a link to How to file a complaint with OSH

9.Adult Care Home Violations

County adult service specialists and environmental health specialists inspect these types of facilities. Adult Care Licensure Section (DHSR) issues licenses to these facilities. Therefore, I believe you need to file two complaints (one for County Adult Services, and another one for North Carolina Division of Health Service Regulation).

For more information see the following link, Adult care home violations and penalties

To me, an Assisted Living facilities or Group Homes with bed bugs, are not a good place to have my family members in. I believe there should be a mandatory reporting system, when the facility finds bed bugs. I believe that there must be an independent bed bug expert or an IPM consultant to assess any progress of bed bug infestations and treatments. It is not adequate for simply having a pest control company or for someone working on the bed bug issue in a facility.

10.HUD subsidized residential buildings (Section 8 buildings)

There were two guidelines. 1. Guidelines on Addressing Infestations in HUD-Insured and Assisted Multifamily Housing;Notice H2012-5.

2. Guidelines on Bed Bug Control and Prevention in HUD Insured and Assisted Multifamily Housing; Notice H2011-20.

I believe each geographic regions have HUD contact numbers and Housing Authority numbers for filing bed bug complaints. I believe that landlords are responsible for eradicating bed bugs in their properties. I am not familiar with the inspectors and their responsibilities for HUD residential buildings; however, I would not be surprised to find out that the inspectors are not well-trained for assessing bed bugs.

11.Housing Authority buildings

Housing Authorities, to my personal point of view, are not widely open to bed bug information and training. There were some exceptions and some directors worked with me. Others unfortunately ignore their problems, until someone else point their problems out. I believe there should be better overseeing of their efforts on bed bug prevention and control measures.

Bed Bugs: Don’t Panic Beyond Pesticides

Beg bugs do not transmit disease and can be controlled without toxic pesticides

The recent bed bug resurgence across the U.S. has homeowners and apartment dwellers taking desperate measures to eradicate these tenacious bloodsuckers, with some relying on dangerous pesticides and fly-by-night exterminators. Even pesticides registered by the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) for bed bug use are linked to acute poisoning, cancer, hormone disruption, asthma, neurotoxicity, organ damage, and more. These measures pose more dangers than any perceived short-term benefit.

While there is no magic bullet solution to bed bug eradication, there are many ways to effectively control them without the use of dangerous chemical pesticides. To solve the bed bug problem nationwide, it is going to take a comprehensive public health campaign -public-service announcements, travel tips and perhaps even government-sponsored integrated pest management programs for public housing and other high density areas. If you have bed bugs in your home, they can be effectively controlled through a comprehensive strategy that incorporates monitoring, sanitation, sealing, heat treatments and more.

Below are steps you can take to reduce and get rid of bed bug populations in your home:

In November 2009, the Ohio Department of Agriculture asked EPA to allow an unregistered use of the neurotoxic and cancer causing insecticide propoxur in homes to fight bedbugs in what state officials are describing as an emergency situation. In December 2009, Beyond Pesticides sent comments to EPA urging the agency to deny the request because safer alternatives exist and its use would put children in danger. Under pressure from Beyond Pesticides and others, EPA refused Ohios request for an emergency exemption (read more).

For more information on least toxic control of other pests go to our Alternatives Page or call Beyond Pesticides at 202-543-5450.

Bed Bug Prevention & Inspection: Avoid Bed Bugs at Home

Looking to avoid bed bugs? Bed bug prevention is a lot easier than eliminating an existing infestation.According to the 2015 Bugs Without Borders survey, bed bugs remain the most difficult pest to treat – more difficult than cockroaches, termites and ants!

Depending on the scope of an infestation and the type of treatment used by a pest professional, it can take several treatments to completely eliminate bed bugs.

Fortunately, there are many things that one can do to prevent bringing bed bugs into the home. Vigilance is the key to bed bug prevention. When out in public – whether at a hotel, store, movie theater or work place – it is important to be conscientious of all surroundings.

As the public’s awareness of the bed bug resurgence grows, focus on bed bug prevention has also grown. Many Americans are modifying their behaviors to minimize their risk of an infestation. According to the 2011Bed Bugs in America survey, 27 percent of respondents have inspected or washed clothing upon returning from a trip; 25 percent havechecked a hotel room for bed bugs; 17 percent have inspected or vacuumed a suitcase upon returning from a trip and 12 percent have altered or canceled travel plans because of concern about bed bugs.

Regular bed bug inspections are the best method of prevention to avoid bed bug infestations. Read our tips for preventing bed bugs to learn more about how to protect your household from an infestation:
