FACTS & INFORMATION
WHAT DO BED BUGS LOOK LIKE?
Bed bugs are small in size and are flat and oval-shaped. They are a brownish colour but after feeding, they turn more of a red colour. Bed bugs are detectable by the naked eye once they are developed and look similar to Spider Beetles, Cockroach Nymphs, Carpet Beetles, etc.
WHAT IS THE LIFE CYCLE OF BED BUGS?
Upon mating, the eggs can hatch in 6-10 days. Bed bugs normally live for
4-6 months but some can have a life span of up to 12 months, depending on the environment, temperature and food. A single bed bug can lay up to 200-250 eggs so the number of eggs can by multiplied in no time.
BED BUG BITES
Bed bugs feed on blood and their bites can be extremely itchy and uncomfortable. The bites look like a swollen red dot on your skin and will often be itchy. For those who have a reaction to the bite, it may cause a rash or eczema. Bites may look different, person to person, and every person may have a different reaction to bed bugs.
SIGNS & SYMPTOMS
Due to the size and shape of bed bugs, most people do not detect them until they wake up with a bite. Bed bugs are most active in the dark, during your sleep. If you notice random red brownish spots on your sheets or clothing, for example, those may be symptoms of bed bugs as well.

BED BUGS EXPLAINED
Bed bugs are small, flat, oval-shaped critters. They are brownish, but after feeding, they turn more of a red colour. Bed bugs are detectable by the naked eye once they are fully grown and look similar to spider or carpet beetles, cockroaches or nymphs.
Upon mating, they can hatch their eggs in six to 10 days. Bed bugs usually live for four to six months, but some can live up to a year. Their lifespan depends on the temperature and availability of food in their environment. One bed bug alone can lay up to 250 eggs, which is how bed bugs multiply so quickly.
A bed bug’s primary source of food is blood, and their bites can be extremely uncomfortable and itchy. The bits appear as swollen, itchy red dots on your skin and typically appear in threes. Those who are allergic to their bite may get a rash or eczema. Bites can look different from person to person, and different people will have different reactions to bed bug bites.
Because of the size and shape of bed bugs, most people do not detect them until they wake up covered in bites. Bed bugs are most active when it is dark while you are asleep. If you notice irregular red-brown spots on your sheets or clothing, it could be indicative of the presence of bed bugs.
