Bed bugs are blood feeding insects that are nocturnal. Bed bugs prefer to bite humans, but will also feed on other warm blooded animals.
Bites of bed bugs often swell and are itchy, similar to a mosquito bite. Although they pose no serious medical threat initially, scratching these bites can result in skin infections.
Bed bugs harbour and lay eggs close to where humans sleep, such as seams in mattresses, bedroom furniture, behind loose wallpaper, skirting boards, floor boards, and cracks and crevices of the bedroom. They have also been known to harbour in other areas of the home where humans spend a lot of time.
