Bed Bug Control Philippines
Common Bed Bug Species in the Philippines
Cimex lectularius, commonly known as the common bed bug, is found all over the world. It is typically brownish in color, but can appear reddish after a meal. They are about 5-7 millimeters in length, and are flat and oval in shape. These bugs are attracted to carbon dioxide, heat, and other chemicals that are released by their host. Bed bugs are known to cause itchy, red welts on the skin and can lead to allergic reactions and secondary infections if not treated properly.
Cimex hemipterus, commonly known as the tropical bed bug, is found primarily in tropical and subtropical regions. It is similar in appearance to the common Cimex lectularius, but is slightly longer and narrower, measuring about 6-7 millimeters in length. This species is also attracted to carbon dioxide and heat, and is known to cause similar skin reactions to the Cimex lectularius.
Know Where Bed Bugs Hide
Know Where Bed Bugs Hide
Bed bugs are pesky little insects that are notorious for their ability to hide in tight spaces. To effectively get rid of bed bugs, it is important to know where they like to hide.
- One of the most common places where bed bugs hide is in mattress seams and folds, and box spring inside hotel rooms, bedrooms, and even guest rooms. This is because bed bugs are attracted to the warmth and carbon dioxide that humans emit while sleeping. They can also hide in a bed frame, headboard, and even footboard.
- Other places where they hide include cracks and crevices in walls and floors, behind baseboards and electrical outlets, and in upholstered furniture. Bed bugs can even hide in clothing, luggage, and other personal belongings, making it easy for them to spread from one location to another. So it's better to fix and seal cracks and crevices to avoid a bug infestation.
Getting rid of bed bugs naturally can be challenging, as these pests are known to be resistant to many common insecticides. One effective method for killing them is to use heat treatments or soaking in hot water, which can reach temperatures high enough to kill bugs and their eggs.
Bug bombs, also known as foggers, are not recommended for killing bed bugs. This is because bed bugs are able to hide in places where the fog may not reach them and the infested areas and the chemicals in those bombs may not be effective in eliminating bed bugs.
It is important to note that bed bugs multiply quickly, so it is important to act quickly if you suspect a bedbug infestation. Bed bug eggs can hatch in as little as 6-10 days, so a small infestation can quickly turn into a larger problem if left untreated.
