Although its technical name is Cimex Lectularius, most people recognize it as the bedbug. It is an ectoparasite that feeds on human blood. They will consume animal blood too, but their primary food source is human blood. They’re called bedbugs because they love hiding in mattresses. They’ll also hide on box springs and bed frames. Doing so allows them to stay close to their favorite food source. When you go to sleep, the bedbugs in your home will come out of hiding and feed on your blood.
Why Bedbugs Invade Homes
In basic terms, bedbugs want to enter your home so they can consume your blood. Once they’ve snuck inside, they’ll have quick and easy access to you and your loved ones. Just remember that these pests can enter homes using several techniques. For instance, they might come home with you after a motel stay. The bugs will hide in your luggage, so you won’t realize you’re taking them home. They can also travel from one dwelling to another. Finally, bedbugs tend to cling to old furniture, clothes, and other items. Buy used belongings and you might bring bedbugs home with you.
How Dangerous Are Bedbugs?
Although bedbugs bite and consume blood, they’re not dangerous. Bedbug bites aren’t painful or dangerous. Since they don’t transmit any serious illnesses, you don’t need to worry about these pests making you ill. Being bit could lead to the development of a red, itchy welt though.
