WHAT TO LOOK FOR IN BED BUG BITES

Bed bugs are a nuisance pest in Las Vegas and most of the time it is hard to find these bugs as they usually come out of hiding at night and feed while people are asleep.

The Las Vegas bed bugs that infest people's houses are usually a species called Cimex Lectularius, but other species can cause an infestation as well. Bed bugs were almost completely eradicated from human habitats in developed countries around 1940, but recently infestations have been on the increase. Bed bugs usually "hitchhike" into a home on clothing, luggage, furniture, pets, or people and the infestation spreads when the bugs feed and reproduce.

Bed bug bite reactions differ from person to person.  Some people get a mild reaction the bites look and feel like mosquito or flea bites and then some people don’t react at all. The opposite extreme people get big itchy welts that take two or more weeks to heal. Bites can occur singly, in clumps, or in a line. They can show up within hours—or two weeks later. Confirming a bed bug infestation on bites alone is impossible. You need evidence: a bed bug.

Many people react to the saliva, getting itchy bumps or rashes. After feeding for five to ten minutes, drawing only a drop or two of blood, bugs return to their hiding spot. Although bed bugs can live for over a year without feeding, they typically seek blood every five to ten days depending on room temperature.
