Beds, Bugs, and Bed Bugs, Oh My! Myths and Misconceptions About Bed Bugs

A detested pest around the world, bed bugs can quickly infest even the cleanest of homes. Unfortunately, a host of misconceptions surround these blood-sucking bugs, and often deter home and hotel owners in Darwin from seeking prompt and professional pest control.

  • Bed bugs may be hard to see, but they are not invisible. Indeed, adults are about the size of an apple seed, albeit quite thin and flat. Colour will range from tan to brown, with a distinctly segmented body.
  • Bed bugs are not dangerous, although can cause an allergic reaction in those who are sensitive to their saliva. Typically, a rash or red, itchy marks will appear at the site of a bite.
  • Bed bugs don’t just live in beds, and are apt to migrate via suitcases, clothes, or even furniture. Keep your luggage in plastic while traveling, and have new furniture inspected before bringing it into the house.
  • Bed bugs are not easy to eradicate, and will thrive in even the cleanest of homes and hotels. Prompt and proper treatment is the only way to ensure that your property is protected.
