Bed bugs are 5mm long, and look like a small, flat red-brown disc. The most common bed-bug is found in human habitations world-wide.

The bed bug feeds on the blood of humans, emerging at night from cracks in furniture joints, bed frames, wallpaper and skirting boards to bite humans. The bites can be painful, giving rise to hard whitish swelling.

They leaves a characteristic speckled excrement, as well as an almond-like smell in rooms where they are active. 

Control Methods

Insecticidal spray, followed by complete fumigation (this is not a DIY treatment).
