Bedbugs (aka: Bed Bugs)

Flat, reddish-brown, oval insects about 3/16 inch long, similar to the size of an apple seed when fully grown. Swollen and reddish after feeding. Females lay 1-5 eggs per day, which hatch in 6-10 days. They do not fly (they have no wings).

Bedbugs feed by sucking blood from people and animals, usually taking between 3-10 minutes.  They will try to feed again in 5-10 days, however, bedbugs can live off a single blood meal for several months. Bites can leave itchy, bloody welts on the skin and can cause allergic reactions, such as severe itching

 "Because the insects don't pose a serious health hazard or spread disease, there's no legal requirement to notify the public of infestations. Without a requirement, people seem reluctant to admit their homes or establishments have the bugs."

Fecal stains, egg cases, and exuviae (shed skins) of bedbugs in crevices and cracks on or near where people sleep are suggestive that bedbugs may be present, but only by observing the bugs themselves can confirm an active infestation.

bedbugs have been on the rise for several years and can be found in any living quarters: apartments, shelters, rooming houses, hotels, cruise ships, buses, trains, dorm rooms, and single-family homes. They are often found hiding in mattresses, box springs, bed frames, headboards, dresser tables, and in any clutter or objects around a bed.  A populations build they will be found behind the baseboards, behind picture frames, behind electrical outlet plates, around door and window casings, in seams, crevices and inside furniture I.ie..nightstands, dressers chairs, couches), behind peeling wallpaper, in radios, table lamps, stereo speakers, backpacks, and in the folds of curtains.

There's a greater chance of spreading bed bug infestations July through November, as there's an increase in travel, increased moving activities, college kids in and out, and greater opportunities for picking up used furniture.

bedbugs hide in the daytime and become active at night, when the sun is down.  They can travel 100 feet in a single night but tend to live within eight feet of the sleeping area. They can travel between apartment units through ceilings, walls and underneath doors.  Plus, unwanted and infested mattresses, sofas and other furniture often get left curbside, only to be hauled into other homes by unsuspecting treasure hunters.  With harder economic times in recent years, people have been scavenging more.

If you're throwing out furniture or bedding,
be sure to make it unusable by ripping it
open with a utility knife, officials advise.

APPLETON-- Those tiny blood-sucking parasites known as bedbugs are spreading in Wisconsin.

It’s been 2 years since health department officers say bedbug infestation peaked in our area. But local exterminators say they’re seeing an increase in calls to treat the problem.

Bedbug complaints to the Outagamie County Health Department are declining slightly according to department officers. But county leaders admit they do not individually track bedbug complaints. Complaints about bedbugs are grouped together with other insect and rodent complaints. It is not required by law to report bedbug sightings.

July 2013, APPLETON, Wis. — Ongoing complaints about bedbugs in Outagamie County suggest the problem may not be going away any time soon.

The county doesn't require public reporting, so it's not exactly clear how severe the issue is. But health officials say the number of complaints has been growing, and pest-control experts say business has been growing more brisk in recent years, the Post-Crescent Media reported (http://post.cr/1aCX987 ).

County officials say the problem is especially prevalent in lodging facilities, which are now resigned to the idea that infestations will occur. [5 star hotels are no exception; however hotel staffs are being trained in bed bug inspections and checking bed frames and mattresses between checkouts and check-ins.]

"Those establishments aren't left wondering if they'll ever arrive — they now assume they're coming in," said Natalie Vandeveld, the county's environmental health sanitarian.

Just the thought of them makes the skin crawl. They can even cause psychological damage.

Reports of bedbug infestations, although not widespread, occur in Fond du Lac just as they do anyplace else. And while they can be a nuisance, the blood-sucking insects are not considered a health hazard, according to the Fond du Lac County Health Department.

Calls come to the department from residents asking what they can do about bedbugs and hoping that someone will step in and resolve the problem. ...
