The Cimex lectularius is simply referred to as the bedbug. These ectoparasites tend to consume human blood, but they will accept animal blood as well. Once they’ve invaded a dwelling, they’ll hide in the mattress and stay there until the victim goes to bed. Then, they’ll come out of hiding to feed on the victim’s blood. Since bedbugs are only 3/16s of an inch, they can hide exceptionally well. Finding them won’t be easy.
Reasons Bedbugs Invade Homes
Why would your home become a target for bedbugs? The answer is you. Bedbugs are primarily interested in sneaking into your home so they can consume your food. If you have pets, they’ll likely suck their blood as well. Bedbugs can invade a dwelling using numerous methods. They’re crafty and know how to hitch a ride over a long distance without being detected. Many infestations occur because Santa Monica residents stayed at infested motels. The bedbugs climbed into their bags and went home with them.
There is also a risk that bedbugs are going to invade your home after you’ve purchased used items. Bedbugs can hide in the smallest cracks, gaps, and crevices. They might hide in an old bed frame that you purchased from a friend. They’ll enter your home when you take the bed frame home with you. In some rare cases, bedbugs will walk from one apartment to another.

Are you worried about the health hazards posed by bedbugs? Bedbugs suck blood from humans and warm-blooded animals. They prefer your blood and this is cause for concern.

Alternatively, you may not experience any symptoms. Either way, you can rest assured knowing bedbugs have never been known to transmit serious illnesses.
