Bedbugs are small bugs, and they are oval in shape and brown in color.

The bedbugs lay many eggs, and this is their way of reproducing. The bedbugs are able to produce hundreds of eggs in a lifetime. This means a bedbug’s population can increase very quickly.
The bed bug will shed their skin before they mature and this happens at least five times. The bedbugs skin will come off when they are enlarged after drinking blood. One of the ways that you can notice the bedbugs in your home is through the debris they leave on your beddings after eating blood and shedding off the outer skin, and so be on the lookout.
The bedbugs will normally make their homes on the bed cracks, couches and this gives them the advantage to suck your blood and especially when its dark. They will pierce the skin of the human they are feeding on and then they will use their skinny, straw-like mouths to draw blood. As the bedbug feeds on your blood, you won’t wake up and notice the bites immediately, as they are painless when they happen. After the bedbugs pierce your skin you might not notice immediately, but through the skin irritation you will notice that they have bitten you. The bedbugs are not known to spread any diseases unless one is allergic to the bedbugs.
This means that it doesn’t matter whether your home is clean or has dust the bedbugs will live anywhere as long as there are people where they can get blood.
Some of the ways that you can bring bedbugs home, include the furniture which you might buy and bring home and even through luggage after a vacation and stay in hotel where there are bedbugs. The bedbugs will spread from one room to the other.
After realizing that you have unusual bites on your skin, confirm with other members of your house so that you can establish if the bites are from bedbugs.
