The biggest pest problem sweeping the nation feeds on blood, your blood!
Bed Bugs of all life stages can be easily identified after they feed because they become noticeably enlarged and blood red in color.
Homes and businesses are at risk, Bed Bugs are considered one of the most easiest transferred pests from one location to another. Bed Bugs have never been very picky about where they infest, hospitals for instance are supposed to be one of the cleanest places but sanitation is no match for Bed Bugs. Anyone can introduce one pregnant female Bed Bug and the cycle begins, female Bed Bugs can lay hundreds of eggs in their life time of a year or more and baby Bed Bugs feed as soon as they hatch.
When a baby or nymph Bed Bug is born it is relatively clear in appearance, once it has it’s first blood meal however it becomes twice it’s size engorged with blood. Bed Bugs of all life stages can be easily identified after they feed because they become noticeably enlarged and blood red in color. An adult Bed Bugs natural reddish brown color changes completely blood red and when squished they emit a pungent odor and a huge red blood stain.
Almost all insects and arachnids when squished ooze out different colors, for example German Cockroaches squish white and Spiders squish green! Stomping out or swatting a Bug and leaving behind a blood stain is one sign you might have Bed Bugs.
Bed Bugs are insects with six legs and an antennae, and no wings. Bed Bugs go through a simple life cycle which consists of egg, nymph, and adult. Each one of these life cycles must be followed by a blood meal but Bed Bugs can go over a year without eating, laying in a dormant stage until food arrives! Bed Bugs will also feed on each other if a food source is eliminated but they are not likely to cannibalize themselves out of existence!
Las Vegas, North Las Vegas, and Henderson have become one of the leading Bed Bug cities in the nation!
