Where Do Bed Bugs Come From?

Believe or not these bed bugs have been around for centuries. Scientists have even found fossilized bed bugs dating back 2,000 years ago.

Bed bugs have lived off of human hosts since the beginning of time. Their Scientific Name is “Cimex Lecturlarius.”

“Cimex” is defined as bug. “Lecturlarius” means couch or bed. So as you can see, their name is very fitting.

What Do Bed Bugs Look Like?

Bed bugs have 2 antenna and a total of 6 legs. Three on each side. They are a rust color and even almost light brown when at the nymph stage. Some people say that they have the shape of a football or even best compared to an apple seed.

“Bed bugs have small, flat, oval-shaped bodies. They are wingless. Adults do have the vestiges of wings called wing pads, but they do not fully develop into functional wings. Adults are brown in color, although their bodies turn red after feeding.” orkin.com


How Do You Know If You Have Bed Bugs?

Sometimes there could be other pests that could be biting you such as fleas and chiggers so please be aware of that. The bites could look very similar but here are the main things to look for to find out if you have bed bugs in your home.

  1. Bed Bug Bites
  2. Itching or burning sensation while sleeping or sitting on furniture
  3. Evidence of bed bugs

Bed Bug Bites

When a bed bug bites you many times you will not feel it at first because they will actually transfers both an anesthetic and an anticoagulant through a straw-like mouth that it uses to feed.

This actually numbs the area so the host doesn’t feel it at the time of feeding. This will wear off in about 2-5 days. This is when the bites begin to itch.

Bed bug bites start of as red bumps somewhat in a pattern.  Many people call this the breakfast, lunch, and dinner bite. The bites will begin to swell and become very irritated. The more you scratch or itch, the more it will itch. Just like a mosquito bite.

Many clients of mine have passed down some great information when it comes to keeping these bites in check. Try going to your local drug store and purchasing any type of lotion that has lavender as one of its ingredients.

The lavender acts as a repellent so that when you go to bed at night you just apply the lavender lotion to your arms, shoulders and neck areas and this will help keep them off you so that you can get a better night sleep. It also helps with the itching as well.

Aveeno makes a lavender lotion with camomile which many clients have told me they use this and it helps. Here’s the link

Evidence Of Bed Bugs

Besides the bites, bed bugs leave some important evidence that you should be aware of. Make sure you check your bed sheets, mattresses, and box springs for red and black spots. You may also find this evidence on baseboards, electrical outlets, and room walls.

The black stains are the fecal matter or waste of the bed bugs. The red stains are actually the blood of the host. When we sleep, we roll over sometimes during our sleep and will crush a bed bug that is currently feeding which will cause the red stains on pillow cases and sheets.

Next check your mattress and box springs for the same type of evidence. If you see any type of black stains then you have a bed bug issue. These stains will look like black mold or even like a dark colored shoe polish.

Make sure to check the inner box spring area (wooden frame) because this is where these pests love to hide. If you see black stains on the box spring inner frame then bed bugs have set up shop there and you could of just found the nest.

Please keep in mind that the larger the stains of the area the bigger the infestation could be.

As bed bugs grow they will grow out of their shell and just leave it. If you see shells or exoskeletons in the mattress seams or box spring areas this is a definite sign of bed bugs.

How Do You Get Rid of Bed Bugs?

Needless to say, it is a huge challenge to get rid of these bed bugs.

Why are bed bugs so difficult to get rid of?

  1. Some bed bug products don’t work
  2. The bed bugs keep coming back
  3. They multiply so quickly
  4. Someone else keeps bringing them into your home
  5. We are just not educated on the right way on how to get rid of them

There are many bed bug sprays that don’t claim to do what they are supposed to do. This is probably the most frustrating part of trying to get rid of bed bugs. You spend all this hard earned money for your weapon of choice and when you use it on the bed bugs they just laugh at you.
