Bed Bug Pest Control Gold Coast
As per a recent survey performed by ecologists on the Australian grounds, a massive resurgence of bed bugs has been reported. About 4,500% of increase in bed bugs infestations has been recorded since 1999. Bed bugs are classified as the small parasitic insects that feed on the blood of sleeping animals. These blood-sucking insects have a long life span of about 6 months. They can easily survive and reproduce at normal room temperature for up to three months or more without having the need to feed on a host. The adults of this species are easily identifiable with their flat and oval body, but as soon as they are fed, their body gets swollen and elongated.
If your living or working space in Brisbane or Gold coast is invaded by these bugs, then you findwill them in the crevices of your mattresses – lurking on the stitched edges, spreads, frames of the bed, skirting boards, furniture, cracks in plasters, holes around the walls or furniture. The Pest and Termite Co has got you covered with Bed Bug Pest Control Gold Coast. The bed bugs usually leave their trail with their cast-off skins, eggs, and faecal stains. The adult bugs can be spotted with the naked eye – pale red in colour. The smaller or young nymphal bugs are difficult to observe on any surface. These bugs when present in a huge count produce a ‘buggy’ odour. Some of these bugs develop a thick outer surface called ‘cuticle’ that makes them harder to kill. This makes them resistant against many general treatments as well. At this time it becomes really important to get them treated by Professionals at the first place so that your space in Gold Coast & Brisbane is Free from Bed Bugs.
The Nasty Bug Bites
Bed bug bites are commonly occur on warm blooded animals/humans on any exposed part of their body when they are sleeping. The bites from these bugs cause red and itchy spots on the skin that may sustain for days. Generally biting during the night, these red patches might feel itchy for 9-14 days. Different people show different kinds of reactions to these bug bites. Many of them experience allergies with large wheals, welts and swelling on the parts that have been bitten. This is the most common form of inflammation that has been reported in several cases. The least common or rare cases may suffer an anaphylactic shock due to hypersensitivity against allergies. The bites from bed bugs can be easily identified as they are ordered in rows, unlike the mosquito bites that are randomly patterned. Discomfort in sleeping is one of the other problems that many people face as a psychological effect of the presence of bed bugs. There are some cases where people do not contract these inflammations, while some may lose a lot of blood and become anaemic. Some doctors also believe that the inflammations caused by bed bugs trigger allergic reactions and asthma in rare cases.
The type of bed bugs that you would encounter
- Cimex lectularius: This is the most common species of bed bugs that you would generally find at your homes or commercial spaces. These bugs are known for being adapted to temperate to moderate climates. Also, these bed bugs are the most widespread across the globe.
- Cimex hemipterus: This is the tropical species of bed bugs that was brought along with the European colonials to Australia and we still haven’t gotten rid of them. This species prefers living under humid climates and temperature. These bugs can become a serious fear for the backpackers travelling to the tropical regions.
Both of the above explained species look very much identical to each other. These bugs are nocturnal, resting through the day and hunting through the night. The warmth and carbon dioxide that we release while sleeping attracts them. They use their complex anatomical syringes to withdraw blood from the skin from a sleeping victim, thus explaining the ugly red rash. They are present in the new residencies as a common phenomenon by travelling inside the dormitories and apartment buildings. Once they set eyes on a suitable host, they are likely to harbor in very close proximity to the victim until they are finished feeding upon them.
