BLOOD FEEDERS : BED BUGS
Human bed bugs are found all over the world and are constantly being dispersed via used furniture, luggage and bedding. During the last decade, there has been a significant increase in the number of bed bugs infestations. Because bed bugs hide in small crevices, they may accompany luggage, furniture, clothing, pillows, boxes and other bedroom objects when these are moved between apartments, homes and hotels. Used furniture, particularly bed frames and mattresses are at greatest risk of harbouring bed bugs and their eggs. Bed bugs can wander between adjoining apartments through voids in walls and holes through which wires and pipes pass.
Can produce a distinctive pungent odour when present in large numbers.
Can cause intense itching and in some case cases, the itchy bites can develop into painful welts that last for several days.
