And while bedbugs have been an ancient problem, they have recently been on the rise for several reasons. Once thought to be eradicated from developed countries like the USA and other regions, reports of infestations are appearing all over the place. In 2009, it was reported that bedbug populations were growing at nearly 30% annually in the USA. Reports are increasing and bed bugs are becoming a large problem, even in Broken Arrow.
Bed Bugs can be an extremely difficult item to handle for a homeowner because they are tiny insects that tend to stay hidden until they feed on their host’s blood which can cause serious skin irritation for people with sensitive skin. These tiny pests love enclosed spaces such as bedding or clothing which makes them perfect targets for hiding inside your mattress or behind your picture frames. Once established these pests spread out into neighboring rooms by catching a ride on their unsuspecting hosts.
Bedbugs are small, flat, oval insects that survive by feeding on human or animal blood. They don’t fly or jump but they can crawl very fast over floors, walls, ceilings, and other surfaces. Adult bedbugs have visible segmented lines on their bodies, are brown to reddish-brown in color, and are about the size of an apple seed. Bedbugs can also survive for several months without feeding. The colder the temperatures, the longer they can live without food. Bedbugs avoid sunlight but will venture out near dawn or dusk when they feed on hosts. They tend to be found in cracks and crevices near sleeping areas. This is not surprising given that their primary meal comes from people while they sleep.
If you have noticed skin irritation, tiny black spots of bug waste, or blood smears on your sheets, these can all be signs that a bed bug infestation is present in your home.
