Bed Bugs Control and Treatment
Bed bugs are known as nocturnal blood-sucking insects which have a very characteristics flat and oval-shaped body with no wings. They are reddish-brown in colour. The average length of bed bugs can be between 4 to 7 mm. The tiny size of bed bugs enables them to hide inside small cracks and crevices. The most common species of bed bugs reported in Singapore is Cimex lectularius (Common Bed Bug).

Have you ever been woken up by unbearable red and itchy bites in the middle of the night? Or how about the sudden appearance of painful swellings when you wake up? If you have experienced these symptoms before, you might be in danger of a bed bug infestation.
Bed bugs tend to bury themselves in small cracks and gaps in residential homes during the day time. These itsy-bitsy creatures are most often found in bedding, furniture and wooden flooring. Remarkably, they can be acquired from external sources such as baggage left in public lodgings, third-party visitors and even from your own clothes worn outdoors.
Bed bugs enjoy feeding on blood from exposed skin surfaces. The higher amounts of carbon dioxide produced by humans during sleep at night draw these insects to their host. The heat and warmth allow these insects to thrive, where the rich and intense human blood allow these pests to spawn very quickly.
These pesky troublemakers are not disease-carriers but can cause unpredictable emotional upset.
