Bed Bugs Quick Facts:
- Bed bug aka Cimex lectularius and the tropical bedbug Cimex hemipterus.
- Bed Bugs ARE JUST NOT A HOTEL ISSUE. Bed Bugs can thrive in single-family homes, apartments, hospitals, college dorm rooms, office buildings, schools, buses, trains, movie theaters, retail stores, ETC. In short, just about anywhere THAT humans are.
- Incidence of bed bugs ARE (3X) three times higher in urban areas than in rural areas due to factors such as larger population size, living CONDITIONS (Higher Concentration) and increased mobility, which are conducive to the rapid spread and breeding of bed bugs.
- Bed Bugs DO NOT live on Humans. Humans are simply a host they feed on.
- Bed Bugs feed exclusively on blood with Human blood being their preference.
- Bed Bugs feeding on a host, aka Blood Meal, engorge with blood in about 10-15 minutes and return to hiding to avoid detection.
- Bed bugs usually feed every 3 – 7 days, thus most of the population is in the digesting state versus feeding state. However, because bed bug infestations can spread rapidly, the perception is bed bugs are feeding with greater regularity.
- Bed Bugs can live for several months without a blood meal. This means they can linger in furniture, bags, suitcases, etc. for an extended time until they are near a human host again.
- Bed Bugs are elusive. They know to stay out of view during the daytime, hiding in mattress crevices, box springs, baseboards, behind electrical switch plates, in picture frames, and even behind wallpaper. But at nighttime, the carbon dioxide we exhale often tempts them out of their hiding spots. That said a bed bug will seek out a blood meal, at any time, if hungry enough.
- Bed Bugs can travel up to 100’ Per Feeding, although prefer to live within 10’ from their host.
- Bed Bugs are not known to spread disease, although research continues on this front.
- Female Bed Bugs lay approximately 5 - 10 eggs per day and over 500 eggs in a lifetime, with a lifetime ranging from 6 – 12 months.
- After hatching a Bed Bug goes through five (5) juvenile “Nymph” stages before reaching adult stage.
- At room temperature, Bed Bugs can become adults within five (5) weeks.
- Bed Bugs have increased in prevalence since 1995, likely due to pesticide resistance, governmental bans on effective pesticides, and increasing ease of international travel.
- Bed Bugs can survive a wide range of temperatures, although most will typically die within fifteen (15) minutes of an exposure of -26 °F and die immediately at a exposure of >122 °F.
- DNA from human blood meals can be recovered from bed bugs for up to Ninety (90) days, which mean they can be used for forensic purposes.
- Bed bugs have scent glands which produces a musty odor which many equate to the smell of moldy shoes or wet moldy clothes.
Lice Quick Facts:
- Lice is the plural of louse
- Head Louse aka Pediculus humanus capitis.
- Humans host three (3) species of louse; the head louse, the body louse and the pubic louse.
- Head lice are found worldwide. In the United States, infestation with head lice is most common among pre-school children attending child care, elementary schoolchildren, and the household members of infested children. In fact, Lice are 1 of the top 3 reasons children miss school.
- An estimated 6 - 12 million infestations occur each year in the United States among children 3 to 11 years of age.
- Whomever comes in head-to-head contact with someone who already has head lice is at greatest risk. Spread by contact with clothing (such as hats, scarves, coats) or other personal items (such as combs, brushes, or towels) used by an infested person is uncommon.
- Louse have (3) three forms: the egg (also called a nit), the nymph, and the adult.
- Unlike Bed Bugs, Lice both live and feed on humans.
- Louse feed exclusively on blood aka blood meal.
- As long as there’s a food source readily available, an adult louse can live for as long as (30) thirty days on a human.
- Nits cannot live without a human host. They need the warmth of the scalp for incubation before they hatch. They need the nourishment they get from human blood as soon as they’ve hatched. Nits that are dislodged from a hair shaft will most likely die before they hatch.
- Adult lice cannot live longer than twenty-four (24) hours or so on non-human surfaces like carpets, hardwood floors, clothing, furniture, sports helmets, headphones, or hair accessories.
*Bed Bug & Lice control can only be maintained through a treatment strategy that includes a variety of techniques plus careful attention to monitoring. Proper use of pesticides may be part of the strategy, but may not by itself eliminate Bed Bugs & Lice.
