Light brown to a reddish-brown in colour, bed bugs are tiny insects that are usually found in the creases and cracks in and around bedding. Whilst they are often found near bedding, they can also turn up in almost any area of homes or businesses, including toys, clothing, desks, chairs, couches and more!
Just 1/4 of an inch long and oval-shaped, they are nocturnal, bloodsucking creatures which feed exclusively on warm-blooded animals, such as cats, dogs and humans. With their small size, ability to fit into tiny cracks and crevices and nocturnal habits, bed bugs are often very hard to detect before biting their victims.

What to do if you have been bitten?
If you have been bitten by a bed bug, you will most likely have small red bumps on your body, or in the more extreme cases large welts and scabby pimple-type bumps.
Whilst bites are often painful and irritable, they can often be mistaken for other types of bites. So if you have any of the above symptoms, you most likely have been bitten by bed bugs and have an infestation of them within your home or business.
