Welcome to BedbugControlToronto.com!
Most of us don't concern ourselves with bedbug problems as we consider it to be a problem of dirty, unclean homes. However, bedbugs do not discriminate and will live in even the cleanest of environments. For the bedbug it's not the cleanliness they care about. Instead, they look for food that they can easily find in any warm body. Thus, we may worry more about bedbug infestations while vacationing in hotels & motels. Don't make this mistake.
The common bedbug (Cimex lectularius) is the best adapted to human environments, including the Toronto area and ultimately, your own home. It is found in temperate climates throughout the world and lives off the blood of humans.
Adult bedbugs are a reddish-brown, flattened, oval, and wingless, with microscopic hairs that give them a banded appearance. A common misconception is that they are not visible to the naked eye. However they can easily be seen as adults grow to 4-5 mm in length and do not move quickly enough to escape the notice of an attentive observer. Newly hatched nymphs are translucent, lighter in colour and continue to become browner as they moult and reach maturity. In size, they are often compared to lentils or appleseeds.
Common Misconceptions - Dirt and Bedbugs
Bedbugs may be wrongly associated with filth in the mistaken notion that this attracts them. However, bedbugs are attracted by exhaled carbon dioxide and body heat, not by dirt, and they feed on blood, not waste. In short, the cleanliness of their environments has no effect on bedbugs as they feed on their hosts, not on waste.
It is important to note, however, that a clean environment does have an effect on the control of bedbugs. Good housekeeping in association with proper preparation and mechanical removal by vacuuming will certainly assist in control.
While stopping these unwanted pests from entering your facility is next to impossible, there is a way to control the problem.
