- Bedbugs are small, reddish-brown, blood-sucking insects about the size of an apple seed.
Bedbugs are one of the most annoying insects due to their ease of becoming a pest. The conditions that favor their generation are humidity and can come from travel and they feed only on the blood they suck. The main places where bedbugs spread are bedrooms and living rooms, as these spaces intended for rest can more easily attack their victims and hide again. Bed bugs don’t care if the environment is clean or dirty. All they need is a warm environment and plenty of hiding places.

Bed bugs are small, reddish-brown, blood-sucking insects about the size of an apple seed. These animals are found mainly in the corners of the bed, mattress folds, as well as in curtains and other corners of the room.
How to eliminate bed bugs?
Bed bugs are hard to spot with the naked eye. That’s because they are very small, especially in the immature stages, and often hide during the day and come out at night to feed while you sleep.
Once you correctly identify a bed bug infestation, it’s important to act fast.
- Vacuum high-risk areas, such as mattresses, box springs, bed frames, furniture, drawers, and the floor near the bed, to remove bed bug eggs, immature bed bugs, and adults.
- Remove the bag from the vacuum cleaner immediately after use, discard the contents in a sealed plastic bag, and place it outside your home.
- If you suspect an insect is present, wash all clothing and bedding in hot water and dry on high heat for at least 30 minutes to kill bed bugs and their eggs.
- Use a pest control spray or fogging product indicated to kill bed bugs. Be sure to follow all instructions on the label.
