We have been working in this field for over 20 years and We have seen many cases of bed bug infestations. In this blog post, We want to share with you some of the challenges and problems that bed bugs pose, the common types of bed bugs that you may encounter.

Bed bugs are one of the most annoying and persistent pests that can infest your home or business. They are not only a nuisance, but also a health hazard, as they can cause allergic reactions, skin rashes, and even psychological distress. Bed bugs can be found anywhere from homes to hotels, schools, colleges and hospitals. It does not matter if the place is spotless clean or not. Bed bugs can hitchhike on luggage, clothing, furniture, and other items and spread quickly from one room to another.

Bed bugs are small, flat, oval-shaped insects that feed exclusively on the blood of humans and animals while they sleep. They are reddish brown in color and can grow up to 4mm in length. They are usually active at night and hide in cracks and crevices during the day. They can survive for several months without feeding and lay eggs every day.

There are different types of bed bugs that you may encounter in South Florida. The most common one is the Cimex lectularius, which is also known as the common bed bug. This type prefers to feed on human blood and can adapt to various environments. Another type is the Cimex hemipterus, which is also known as the tropical bed bug. This type prefers to feed on bat and bird blood, but can also bite humans. It is more common in warmer climates and can be found in Florida, especially near wildlife habitats. A third type is the Leptocimex boueti, which is also known as the bat bug. This type feeds exclusively on bat blood and does not bite humans. However, it can be mistaken for a bed bug and cause panic.
