Cimex lectularius is the species of bed bug most commonly found in the home. Bed bugs are extreme disturbances because they are known for feeding on human blood. They tend to bite at night, and will bite all over a human body, especially around the face, neck, upper torso, arms and hands. Bloodstains from feeding and fecal matter on the sheets are telltale signs in addition to the embarrassing, unsightly, itchy red welts that form on the arms, legs, chest and backside.
Bed bugs are often carried into a home on objects such as furniture and clothing. These pesky insects and their clusters of eggs can be found in areas all around the home including:
- Seams, creases, tufts and folds of mattresses and box springs
- Cracks in the bed frame and head boards
- Under chairs, couches, beds, and dust covers
- Between the cushions of couches and chairs
- Under area rugs and the edges of carpets
- Between the folds of curtains
- In drawers
- Behind baseboards, and around window and door casings
- Behind electrical plates and under loose wallpaper, paintings and posters
- In cracks in plaster
- In telephones, radios, and clocks
Bed bugs can also travel from apartment to apartment along pipes, electrical wiring and other openings.
