Bed bugs are cosmopolitan pests, attacking all, whether hygiene plays a role or not. Bed bugs are blood sucking insects in the family Cimicidae. Bed bugs are found worldwide in association with human habitations. They are hitch-hikers and very common in public transport, hospitals, theatres, hotels, hostels, etc. They move from place to place along with people’s clothes and baggage.
Bed bugs are the common pest of man, his domestic animals and various other mammals. The sole food of bed bugs comes from warm-blooded animals. Human are the preferred hosts for the common bed bug, but they will feed readily on other animals such as poultry, mice, rats, canaries, dogs, bats, guinea pigs etc. Normally they feed at night however they also feed in daylight hours in places such as theatres, offices, rest rooms, passengers transport vehicles etc.,
Bed bugs give off a distinct odor. They are active bloodsuckers; their bites cause welts and irritations to many people. Many people develop an allergic reaction to the saliva injected by bed bugs as it feeds. The bitten spot usually swells and swelling may be severe in highly sensitive individuals.
Until recently, bed bug infestations were thought to be associated primarily with crowded and dilapidated housing. However, bed bugs have undergone resurgence in pest status and can now be found even in the finest hotel and living accommodations. Normally they feed at night however they also feed in daylight hours in places such as theatres, offices, rest rooms, passengers transport vehicles etc.
The reasons for this resurgence aren’t totally understood but appear to involve increased global travel and commerce, ease of movement of infested items, widespread insecticide resistance and changes in pesticides available to control this pest.

People may bring bed bugs into their homes in luggage or on clothes after visiting an infested dwelling or hotel. If you travel frequently, look for signs of bed bugs in your hotel room by checking behind headboards and under sheets and by inspecting mattress seams and tufts, especially if you have been bitten. If you suspect bed bugs are present, change rooms or hotels. Inspect your luggage before leaving and as soon as you get home, wash and dry all your clothes at the hottest settings the fabric will permit. Frequent travelers may want to store luggage away from the bedroom such as in the garage or a hall closet. You may also inadvertently bring bed bugs into your home on infested bedding or furniture. If you purchase second hand furniture especially beds or mattresses thoroughly inspect the item before bringing it into your home. If you remove infested mattresses or furniture from your home, don’t leave them on the curb or porch. Take such items immediately to the dump or clearly mark them as infested by bed bugs so others won’t unknowingly bring the items into their homes. Keep clutter down, so it is easier to inspect and so bed bugs have fewer hiding places. Also seal up cracks, crevices and holes in bedding, furniture and other potential hiding sites. It is much easier to manage a bed bug infestation when the population is small.
