Bedbugs are very small parasitic insects, between 6-9mm in length and typically like to feed just before dawn. Their bite is extremely irritating and they are active all year.
Bedbugs spend most of their time hiding in bed linen and only move about for short periods to seek a meal of blood, typically from humans. Bedbugs can live several months without a meal. House cleanliness assists with control but infestations can occur due to transference from furniture and luggage that has been in contact with an infestation.
For bedbug management you should:
Place a thin smear of petroleum jelly on bed legs or fit each leg with a band of double-sided tape to prevent bedbugs access to bedding
Remove false bed-heads that are fixed to the wall or thoroughly seal around the bed-head removing all gaps which could permit access
Seal gaps in skirting boards, architraves and similar hiding places. Check any electrical appliances such as lamps, alarm clocks, radios and telephones, and remove covers from light and power switches within 3m of the bed
Examine behind mirrors or pictures within 3m of the bed Thoroughly vacuum and steam clean all areas where safe to do so
