Bed Bugs

Bed bugs are the most serious issue of homes and offices in Australia. The insect got this name because of its habit of resting in folds or layers of mattresses. But the more serious point is they are not only found in beds, but other furniture pieces in homes and offices also have a vast number of bed bugs.

Almost 45% of residential spaces and 78% of commercial spaces have bed bugs. They live on human blood, and one bug usually bites three times to a person for its one night meal. In short, the risk level is very high, and you might spend ten to fifteen restless nights consecutively. It’s really tough to treat bed bugs as they can live for years with food and multiply fast.

Varieties of bed bugs

Two species fall in the category of bed bugs Cimex lectularius and Cimex hemipterus. The common bed bugs are Cimex lectularius, and their size varies from 1mm to 7 mm. Bedbugs can crawl from place to place and are carried by humans and their personal items. These insects live in mattresses, furniture`s foam, wall cracks, the gap between tiles, backsides of articles kept for long in a place, etc.

Cimex hemipterus is not much familiar, but still, you can find them in homes, hotels, restaurants, offices, bars, and pubs where people from different areas frequently visits. They are big in size and more harmful. Their bite leaves a bristle on your skin which takes longer to get rid of.
