Where Do Bed Bugs Come From?
Bedbugs may be present in second-hand furniture that you brought into the house. They may be present in luggage and clothing when you visited another place or house. The insects are very small: a fully grown adult is only about 5mm, around the size of an apple pip.
Bed bugs like to hide in mattresses, as these areas provide a lot of room where they can hide and feed on blood as people rest or sleep. They can gather in any crevice and infest any room in the house.
Bed bug bites cause itchy welts, mainly on the face, neck and hands as these are areas uncovered by pajamas. People who are sensitive to the bites can develop rashes. They could even blister.
In some cases the bites become infected. Sustained biting can lead to anemia. The itching may also keep children awake at night.
