Bugs of the family CIMICIDAE, genus Cimex. They are flattened, oval, reddish insects which inhabit houses, wallpaper, furniture, and beds. C. lectularius, of temperate regions, is the common bedbug that attacks humans and is frequently a serious pest in houses, hotels, barracks, and other living quarters. Experiments have shown that bedbugs can transmit a variety of diseases, but they are not normal vectors under natural conditions.

The effects, both local and systemic, caused by the bites of SPIDERS.
A family of wingless, blood-sucking insects of the suborder HETEROPTERA, including the bedbugs and related forms. Cimex (BEDBUGS), Heamatosiphon, and Oeciacus are medically important genera. (From Dorland, 28th ed)
Insects of the family Formicidae, very common and widespread, probably the most successful of all the insect groups. All ants are social insects, and most colonies contain three castes, queens, males, and workers. Their habits are often very elaborate and a great many studies have been made of ant behavior. Ants produce a number of secretions that function in offense, defense, and communication. (From Borror, et al., An Introduction to the Study of Insects, 4th ed, p676)
Arthropods of the class ARACHNIDA, order Araneae. Except for mites and ticks, spiders constitute the largest order of arachnids, with approximately 37,000 species having been described. The majority of spiders are harmless, although some species can be regarded as moderately harmful since their bites can lead to quite severe local symptoms. (From Barnes, Invertebrate Zoology, 5th ed, p508; Smith, Insects and Other Arthropods of Medical Importance, 1973, pp424-430)
A form of SILICON DIOXIDE composed of skeletons of prehistoric aquatic plants which is used for its ABSORPTION quality, taking up 1.5-4 times its weight in water. The microscopic sharp edges are useful for insect control but can also be an inhalation hazard. It has been used in baked goods and animal feed. Kieselguhr is German for flint + earthy sediment.
A suborder of HEMIPTERA, called true bugs, characterized by the possession of two pairs of wings. It includes the medically important families CIMICIDAE and REDUVIIDAE. (From Dorland, 28th ed)

Kaeng Khoi virus from naturally infected bedbugs (cimicidae) and immature free-tailed bats. (1/55)Kaeng Khoi virus was recovered from bedbugs (Stricticimex parvus and Cimex insuetus) and from suckling wrinkle-lipped bats (Tadarida plicata) collected in central Thailand. The data implicate bedbugs as possible vectors of this virus. (+info)
The salivary apyrase of the blood-sucking sand fly Phlebotomus papatasi belongs to the novel Cimex family of apyrases. (2/55)Apyrases are enzymes that hydrolyze nucleotide di- and triphosphates to orthophosphate and mononucleotides. At least two families of enzymes, belonging to the 5'-nucleotidase and to the actin/heat shock 70/sugar kinase superfamily, have evolved independently to serve the apyrase reaction. Both families require either Ca(2+) or Mg(2+) for their action. A novel apyrase enzyme sequence, with no homology to any other known protein sequence, was found recently in the salivary glands of the hematophagous bed bug Cimex lectularius. This enzyme functions exclusively with Ca(2+). Here, we report the finding of a cDNA similar to that of the C. lectularius salivary apyrase isolated from a salivary gland cDNA library of Phlebotomus papatasi. Transfection of insect cells with the P. papatasi salivary gland apyrase cDNA resulted in the secretion of a Ca(2+)-dependent apyrase whose activity was indistinguishable from that in salivary homogenates of P. papatasi. Homologous sequences were found in humans, in another sand fly (Lutzomyia longipalpis), in the fruit fly Drosophila melanogaster, in the nematode Caenorhabditis elegans and in the protozoan Cryptosporidium parvum, indicating that this family of enzymes is widespread among animal species.

A matter of taste: direct detection of female mating status in the bedbug. (3/55)Males of the bedbug, Cimex lectularius, traumatically inseminate females by inserting a needle-like intromittent organ (penis) through the female's abdominal wall after she has fed. We demonstrate that: (i) mating duration determines ejaculate size; (ii) a female's first copulation in a bout of copulations always lasts longer than subsequent copulations; (iii) the intromittent organ bears sensillae; (iv) males use their intromittent organ to 'taste' whether their current mate has recently copulated; and (v) the consequence of detecting female mating status is the reduction of copulation duration and ejaculate size. We discuss why male bedbugs might show this pattern of ejaculate-size adjustment. (+info)
Reducing a cost of traumatic insemination: female bedbugs evolve a unique organ. (4/55)The frequent wounding of female bedbugs (Cimex lectularius: Cimicidae) during copulation has been shown to decrease their fitness, but how females have responded to this cost in evolutionary terms is unclear. The evolution of a unique anatomical structure found in female bedbugs, the spermalege, into which the male's intromittent organ passes during traumatic insemination, is a possible counteradaptation to harmful male traits. Several functions have been proposed for this organ, and we test two hypotheses related to its role in sexual conflict. We examine the hypotheses that the spermalege functions to (i) defend against pathogens introduced during traumatic insemination; and (ii) reduce the costs of wound healing during traumatic insemination. Our results support the 'defence against pathogens' hypothesis, suggesting that the evolution of this unique cimicid organ resulted, at least partly, from selection to reduce the costs of mating-associated infection. We found no evidence that the spermalege reduces the costs of wound healing. (+info)
Costly traumatic insemination and a female counter-adaptation in bed bugs. (5/55)Male bed bugs pierce females through the body wall and inseminate directly into the body cavity. It has previously been shown that such traumatic insemination carries costs for females, and sexual conflict regarding the mode of insemination should thus propel male-female coevolution. Since males accumulate sexually antagonistic adaptations, females should evolve counter-adaptations that efficiently abate the costs to females of sexual interactions. Yet, unambiguous experimental evidence for female counter-adaptations is lacking. In bed bugs, the spermalege (a highly modified region of the abdomen where the male usually pierces the female) may represent a female counter-adaptation. We assess the female costs of traumatic insemination by varying the rate of insemination on the one hand, and the rate and mode of piercing trauma to females on the other. Our results show that female mating costs are not extreme-elevated mating rate shortened female lifespan but had no significant effect on lifetime egg production. More importantly, additional abdominal piercing in the spermalege had no effect on females whereas even a very low rate of such piercing outside the spermalege reduced female lifetime egg production by 50%. Thus, females are well counter-adapted to the intrusive mode of insemination exhibited by male bed bugs and the costs of elevated mating are comparable with those in other insects, as predicted by theory. We therefore demonstrate that the spermalege efficiently reduces the direct costs of piercing trauma to females, and hence provide experimental evidence for a female counter-adaptation to a sexually antagonistic male trait.

Heme-assisted S-nitrosation of a proximal thiolate in a nitric oxide transport protein. (6/55)Certain bloodsucking insects deliver nitric oxide (NO) while feeding, to induce vasodilation and inhibit blood coagulation. We have expressed, characterized, and determined the crystal structure of the Cimex lectularius (bedbug) nitrophorin, the protein responsible for NO storage and delivery, to understand how the insect successfully handles this reactive molecule. Surprisingly, NO binds not only to the ferric nitrophorin heme, but it can also be stored as an S-nitroso (SNO) conjugate of the proximal heme cysteine (Cys-60) when present at higher concentrations. EPR- and UV-visible spectroscopies, and a crystallographic structure determination to 1.75-A resolution, reveal SNO formation to proceed with reduction of the heme iron, yielding an Fe-NO complex. Stopped-flow kinetic measurements indicate that an ordered reaction mechanism takes place: initial NO binding occurs at the ferric heme and is followed by heme reduction, Cys-60 release from the heme iron, and SNO formation. Release of NO occurs through a reversal of these steps. These data provide, to our knowledge, the first view of reversible metal-assisted SNO formation in a protein and suggest a mechanism for its role in NO release from ferrous heme. This mechanism and Cimex nitrophorin structure are completely unlike those of the nitrophorins from Rhodnius prolixus, where NO protection is provided by a large conformational change that buries the heme nitrosyl complex, highlighting the remarkable evolution of proteins that assist insects in bloodfeeding.

Bed bug infestations in an urban environment. (7/55)Until recently, bed bugs have been considered uncommon in the industrialized world. This study determined the extent of reemerging bed bug infestations in homeless shelters and other locations in Toronto, Canada. Toronto Public Health documented complaints of bed bug infestations from 46 locations in 2003, most commonly apartments (63%), shelters (15%), and rooming houses (11%). Pest control operators in Toronto (N = 34) reported treating bed bug infestations at 847 locations in 2003, most commonly single-family dwellings (70%), apartments (18%), and shelters (8%). Bed bug infestations were reported at 20 (31%) of 65 homeless shelters. At 1 affected shelter, 4% of residents reported having bed bug bites. Bed bug infestations can have an adverse effect on health and quality of life in the general population, particularly among homeless persons living in shelters. (+info)
Tick saliva is a potent inhibitor of endothelial cell proliferation and angiogenesis. (8/55)We report for the first time that saliva of the hard tick and Lyme disease vector, Ixodes scapularis, is a potent inhibitor of angiogenesis. Saliva (< or = 1:500 dilutions) or salivary gland (0.1-0.5 pairs/assay) dose-dependently inhibits microvascular endothelial cell (MVEC) proliferation. Inhibition was also detected with the saliva of the cattle tick Boophilus microplus but not with the salivary gland of Anopheles gambiae, An. stephensi, Lutzomyia longipalpis, Phlebotomus papatasi, Aedes aegypti, Culex quinquefasciatus, and Cimex lectularius. Inhibition of MVEC proliferation by I. Scapularis saliva was accompanied by a change in cell shape (shrinkage of the cytoplasm with loss of cell-cell interactions) and apoptosis which was estimated by expression of phosphatidylserine using the Apopercentage dye, and by a typical pattern of chromatin margination, condensation, and fragmentation as revealed by nuclear staining with Hoechst 33258. The effect of saliva appears to be mediated by endothelial cell alpha5beta1 integrin, because monoclonal antibodies against this but not alphavbeta3, alphavbeta5, alpha9beta1, or alpha2beta1 integrins remarkably block its effect. In addition, SDS/PAGE shows that saliva specifically degrades purified alpha5beta1 but not alphavbeta5 or alphavbeta3 integrins. Incubation of saliva with EDTA and 1,10-phenanthroline, but not phenylmethylsulfonyl fluoride (PMSF), inhibits saliva-dependent degradation of purified alpha5beta1 integrin, suggesting that a metalloprotease is responsible for the activity. Finally, saliva at < or = 1:1,000 dilutions blocks sprouting formation from chick embryo aorta implanted in Matrigel, an in vitro model of angiogenesis. These findings introduce the concept that tick saliva is a negative modulator of angiogenesis-dependent wound healing and tissue repair, therefore allowing ticks to feed for days. Inhibition of angiogenesis was hitherto an unidentified biologic property of the saliva of any blood-sucking arthropod studied so far. Its presence in tick saliva may be regarded as an additional source of angiogenesis inhibitors with potential applications for the study of both vector and vascular biology. (+info)

Bedbugs | Invasion of the Bloodsuckers : Exhibits : Yale Peabody Museum of Natural History
Most of the 90 or so species of bedbug feed on birds or bats. Only two are pests on humans: Cimex lectularius, and C. hemipterous. Although archaeological records show these parasites have been living with humans for thousands of years, their bites do not pass on any known diseases. A bedbugs saliva contains anti- clotting proteins along with other glycoproteins and lipoproteins. A bite can cause immune responses to these proteins ranging from small red swellings to large blisters. Intense multiple feedings can result in bruising and even anemia in small children.. Bedbugs are wingless and so must stay within range of their hosts. An unfed bedbugs flattened body lets it hide in narrow cracks, behind baseboards or in the crannies and seams of bed frames and mattresses. Generally nocturnal feeders, bedbugs are sensitive to low humidity, cold and high heat. Like most other blood feeders, bedbugs are usually first attracted to carbon dioxide in the hosts breath and then by body heat. Nymphs and ...
Readfield company uses Labrador retriever to sniff out bedbugs - Portland Press Herald
Shes sniffing for bedbugs.. And the demand for her services is rising as the population, and awareness, of bedbugs seems to be on the rise in the region.. Sarah Maffei, program manager and a dog handler for Readfield-based Merrills Detector Dog Services, said the company has been working with dogs for about 10 years and added bedbug detecting to its services of drug and explosives detection a few years ago. Bedbug detection has risen to account for more than 50 percent of the companys business, with at least one call every week and often several bedbug-detection jobs a week.. Those jobs included a recent one in which Jordanna confirmed the presence of bedbugs in three offices, located in the same suite, in the General Assistance offices at Augusta City Center.. City officials said they brought in the bedbug-sniffing dog because it is the most efficient way to be certain whether a building has bedbugs in it. The city also periodically has public buildings, including Lithgow Public Library, ...

SFU scientists help put bedbugs to bed forever - SFU News - Simon Fraser University
The Gries began their research eight years ago when Gerhard, who is internationally renowned for his pioneering work in chemical and bioacoustic communication between insects, began searching for pheromones that could lure and trap bedbugs.. Regine worked with him, running all of the lab and field experiments and, just as importantly, enduring 180,000 bedbug bites in order to feed the large bedbug colony required for their research. She became the unintentional host because, unlike Gerhard, she is immune to the bites, suffering only a slight rash instead of the ferocious itching and swelling most people suffer.. The Gries and their students initially found a pheromone blend that attracted bedbugs in lab experiments, but not in bedbug-infested apartments. We realized that a highly unusual component must be missing-one that we couldnt find using our regular gas chromatographic and mass spectrometric tools, says Gerhard.. Thats when they teamed up with Britton, an expert in isolating and ...

Hugh Pennington · Bug-Affairs: Bedbugs! · LRB 6 January 2011
Southalls worries about the role of ships in transporting bedbugs persisted. Robert Usinger, the author of the monumental Monograph of Cimicidae (the family to which the bedbug belongs), saw a thriving colony of the tropical bedbug, Cimex hemipterus, on a liner sailing from Hong Kong to San Francisco. But local transport is just as much of a problem. In 1944, Usinger was bitten by the common bug, Cimex lectularius, on a bus in Atlanta, Georgia. And in the summer of 1947 a number of ladies in Dundee were referred to the local dermatologist because they had developed a red band studded with blisters, some described as being as big as a pigeons egg, on the backs of their calves. All of them had travelled on the lower deck of a tram on the same route. Investigation showed that only one tram was infested. The bugs had settled in a groove in a wooden slat that held a seat in place. They sat in a row on the edge of the wood, the dermatologist said, extracting nourishment from the legs of ...
Natural and Experimental Infection of Bedbugs with Wuchereria Bancrofti in British Guiana | The American Journal of Tropical...
Summary In Georgetown, British Guiana, 100 Cimex hemipterus (older nymphs and adults) were collected from a bed used by two persons who were positive and two persons who were negative for microfilariae of Wuchereria bancrofti. Eighty-three of the bedbugs contained at least one living or dead parasite. Early first-stage larvae were found in the abdomen, thorax, legs, and antennae. Eight bugs had a total of 9 sausage forms, of which 2 were dead and 3 apparently moribund. Also found were 2 sluggish second-stage larvae, and 3 infective larvae of which 2 were non-motile. Rupture of the stomach from overengorgement and consequent release of the parasites into the hemocoele was observed in 12 bugs. The development of W. bancrofti was studied in five lots of bedbugs fed on a human carrier having 165 to 200 microfilariae per 20 cmm of blood at the time of feeding. Little development occurred in 100 first- and second-instar nymphs, which sucked up relatively few parasites. Four lots of 50 older bedbugs were given

Insects | Free Full-Text | Evaluation of Blood Regimen on the Survival of Cimex lectularius L. Using Life Table Parameters
Knowledge of bed bug development under varying conditions can lead to more sophisticated management techniques. Development rate, age and stage-specific life tables were compared for a laboratory strain (HS) and field strain (ECL-05) of bed bug Cimex lectularius L. (Hemiptera: Heteroptera) reared on two blood regimens: human or rabbit blood. Harlan and ECL-05 bed bugs reared on human blood had a life expectancy of 207 and 208 days respectively from the egg stage. Egg to adult development of HS bed bugs reared on human blood (~35 days) was significantly longer than that of the ECL-05 strain (~33 days) in the third, fourth, and fifth instars. The HS and ECL-05 bed bugs reared on rabbit blood had a life expectancy of 149 and 174 days respectively. Egg to adult development time of HS on rabbit blood (~52 days) was significantly longer than ECL-05 (~37 days) in every instar, and HS total life span was significantly shorter compared to ECL-05. Developmental differences based on strain and blood regimen

Symptoms And Treatment Of Bed Bug Bites
Another important thing is that the symptoms caused by bedbug bites should not be misdiagnosed for any other causes. It is very common that people connect similar symptoms to skin diseases. Allergic rashes or scabies are many times referred to in this respect, and this leads to a wrong conclusion, resulting in an inappropriate treatment. It is therefore necessary to look for other signs of bedbug bites. The affected areas look reddish. Bedbug bites may leave odors on the skin due to secretion of their glands. The presence of bedbug can be confirmed if dark fecal spots are observed on the bed sheets used for sleeping. The hiding places of bedbugs also may have this mark. Normally, bedbug bites do not require any treatment. However, your doctor may prescribe steroid creams or oral antihistamines when the itching is severe. This is only to manage the symptoms and give quick relief. There are no known infections caused by bedbug bites. Anyway, due to severe scratching there is a chance of secondary ...
Bed Bug Habits and Life Cycles - AZ Heat Pest
Bedbugs are parasites that rely on blood to survive. They can feed on the blood of any mammal, although they appear to prefer the blood of humans. They are attracted to the warmth surrounding mammalian bodies and the carbon dioxide present in breath expiration. It is usually these factors that guide bedbugs to locate a suitable host for feeding.. Bedbugs usually bite the shoulders and arms of humans. The proboscis of the bedbug pierces the skin and allows the bedbug to feed on the blood. The saliva of the bedbug is injected into the host, which contains an anticoagulant substance that some people have an allergic reaction to.. The feed process takes approximately 5-10 minutes. The bedbug becomes filled with blood, changing in color from light brown to rusty red.. ...

Bed bugs, Cimex lectularius L., are a major pest in the urban environment. Their presence often results in physical, psychological, and financial distress of homeowners and apartment dwellers. Although many insecticide bioassays have been performed on this pest, little attention has been paid to bed bug feeding status, which is closely linked to metabolism, molting, and mass. Therefore, we evaluated the toxicity of topically applied deltamethrin on insecticide susceptible adult male bed bugs fed 2 d, 9 d, and 21 d prior to testing. When toxicity was evaluated on a

Coloured scanning electron micrograph (SEM) of Bed bug (Cimex lectularius) on wool fabric. The common bed bug (Cimex lectularius) is a human pest and found in temperate climates throughout the world and has been known since ancient times. A regular diet of blood is necessary for bed bugs to reach maturity. Bed bugs are generally active only at night, with a peak attack period about an hour before dawn but it may feed at other times of day. Attracted by warmth and the presence of carbon dioxide, the bug pierces the skin of its host with two hollow tubes. With one tube it injects its saliva, which contains anticoagulants and anaesthetics, while with the other it withdraws the blood of its host.

Augusta city offices close after man unleashes 100 live bedbugs - Portland Press Herald
Bridgeo said the entire facility was closed as a precaution, especially since the man may have been to other parts of the building in addition to the General Assistance office where the incident took place.. Bridgeo said Augusta police were called immediately and located the man. Bridgeo expects that the man, whose identity was not immediately available Friday afternoon, would be charged with a crime.. The man came into the General Assistance office and asked for a form to request assistance, but was told by city staff he did not qualify, Bridgeo said he was told.. He whipped out a cup (full of live bedbugs), and slammed it on the counter and bam, off they flew, maybe 100 of them, Bridgeo said.. The bugs started moving and spreading out.. Bedbugs have been a persistent problem in some buildings in the city, and have been found in the citys General Assistance office previously. The bugs are brown, flat and about one-quarter-inch long with a soft, rounded look. After a blood meal, they are dark ...

A Step-by-Step Guide for Removing Bedbugs | SouthEnd Press
Now that its time to nip your pest problem in the bud, youll be delighted to know that you can use at-home methods, benign methods or chemical methods. Depending on the scope of the infestation, a combination of treatments will be more effective than one by itself. Heat is excellent when it comes to killing off bedbugs. Their little bodies cant withstand temperatures above 115 degrees. They also die in temperatures below 32 degrees. Thats why you can soak the items in extremely hot or cold water. Alternatively, you can leave the items in the car on a sweltering or frigid day. Applying constant steam to infested areas is another great way to get the job done. However, to achieve faster results, you should use EPA-registered insecticide thats specifically designed for bedbugs. Keep in mind that foggers or bug bombs can pose a threat to your familys health if you dont exercise caution or follow the instructions. ...

Nottingham Science Blog: December 2014
Prof Siva-Jothy commented that, before WW2, bedbugs were a fact of life in many countries, including the UK and that management of bedbugs, rather than their elimination, was usually the approach that was taken. Crevices in wooden furniture and beds was a particularly popular home for bedbugs. It was to combat this that the metal hospital beds were introduced; they provided few hiding places for bedbugs and could easily be treated with boiling water as a further precaution. Similarly, many hospitals and hotels built in the 1930s used metal framed windows and mimimalist features to reduce the number of possible bedbug hiding places. This all changed at the end of WW2 when DDT was introduced - it was a devastatingly effective insecticide and bedbugs were soon virtually eliminated from homes, hotels and hospitals through its use ...

Extreme Fight: Dogs, Chemicals Take On Bedbugs : NPR

A Great Way to Prevent Bed Bugs | ScreenWeb | screenweb.com
Need a bed bugs solution? From sprays to covers, we provide a list of do it yourself bed bug killer, control of bed bugs & how to control bed bugs treatments to kill and get rid of bed bug infestations.. Bed bugs are one of the most terrifying home pests in existence, and consequently infested homes often have a negative stigma attached to them, due to the lack of understanding about the insects and their origin. In the past, the bedbug population was nearly eliminated with the effective, but incredibly toxic chemical DDT. After DDT use was banned by the government, the bed bug population rose dramatically due to the influx of international travel. Once an infestation takes place, it s incredibly difficult and expensive to properly and thoroughly exterminate the bugs. That is way detection services are the key way to prevent bedbugs. If you are living in an urban environment where you and your neighbor are separated by a brick wall, you should be especially concerned about bug control. Here are ...
Allersac Anti Allergen / Pest Travel Sheet: May 2009
Now bedbugs are a completely different story. With the banning of DDT in the sixties, bedbugs have made a comeback in a big way, they are now epidemic in many of our cities and towns. Bedbugs are excellent travelers and they or their eggs can survive cold, even freezing. They are, or are becoming, resistant to many of the chemicals legally used to kill them. Once your home or hotel is infested, they are extremely difficult to eradicate. Bedbugs dont transmit disease but being bitten can cause reactions from local irritation, redness and swelling to a full blown allergic episode, not to mention a bad case of the heebie jeebies. Short of using chemicals or professional pest control services, the only reliable way to kill bedbugs and their eggs is high heat for an extended period of time. Washing affected clothing or bedding in hot water, at least 60 degrees centigrade/130 fahrenheit, then drying on high heat is the best way. Some pest control companies use steam to kill the vermin but this must ...

Beyond Pesticides Daily News Blog » Blog Archive Ohio Asks EPA to Allow Unregistered Pesticide Use for Bedbugs - Beyond...
Beyond Pesticides, November 13, 2009) The Ohio Department of Agriculture is asking the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) to allow an unregistered use of the neurotoxic and cancer causing insecticide propoxur in homes to fight bedbugs in what state officials are describing as an ˜emergency situation. The chemical, o-isopropoxyphenyl methylcarbamate, is in the carbamate family and classified as a probable human carcinogen (Group B2) by EPA, and listed as a known human carcinogen by the state of California. Though EPA allows emergency exemptions for unregistered pesticide uses in agriculture and for public health reasons under a controversial waiver program (Section 18, Federal Insecticide, Fungicide and Rodenticide Act, 40 CFR Part 166), it rarely issues such an exemption for an indoor pesticide use. Columbus, Cleveland, and Cincinnati are all experiencing a surge of bed bug infestations. According to Richard Pollack, a Harvard University public health entomologist, this is probably ...

Bed bug infestation - Wikipedia
A bed bug can individually and collectively cause a number of health effects including skin rashes, psychological effects and allergic symptoms. Bed bug bites may lead to a range of skin manifestations from no visible effects to prominent blisters. Diagnosis involves both finding bed bugs and the occurrence of compatible symptoms. Treatment involves the elimination of the insect but is otherwise symptomatic. Because infestation of human habitats has been on the increase in developed countries, bed bug bites and related conditions have been on the rise as well, since the 1980s-1990s. The exact causes of this resurgence remain unclear; it is variously ascribed to greater foreign travel, more frequent exchange of second-hand furnishings among homes, a greater focus on control of other pests resulting in neglect of bed bug countermeasures, and increasing resistance to pesticides. Bed bugs have been known human parasites for thousands of years. Individual responses to bites vary, ranging from no ...

SK,. My son brought home a bedbug from college this year. (He lives at home & travels daily to classes). I think we caught it early enough. It took about 2 wks of him getting bit every night before he even said anything to me. He first thought it was an allergic reaction to a change in the laundry detergent. About a week later while changing his sheets, he noticed tiny blood spots. The bottom edge of the boxspring cover, which is hidden by the bed rails, was loaded with bb feces.

Canine Sniffers Your Best Weapon Against New Jersey Bed Bugs
Summary: There are many ways to eradicate New Jersey bed bugs. The most efficient way of detection is through the use of specially trained canine sniffers that can localize infestations, within a three foot radius, allowing you to surgically clear the affected areas efficiently.. New Jersey bed bugs are quite a menace, because they tend to infest in great numbers, and affect a lot of places inside the house. There are many methods that can be adopted to get rid of these pests. For example, the use of diatomaceous earth for use in treating carpets and box springs. The problem with this method is that prolonged use can cause skin irritation, and is also a known carcinogen.. New Jersey bed bugs can also be gotten rid of through the use of insecticides, like pyrethrin and roach powder, such as boric acid. The downside of all these methods is the fact that you are only treating a general area, where you think these bed bugs live and lay their eggs. If you dont get rid of all the nesting areas, ...

Safely destroy fleas on pets - Finally, a non-toxic, natural way to kill fleas, mites, chiggers and other parasitic insects |...
Using diatomaceous earth is not a new idea when it comes to treating animals for fleas. DE is a naturally occurring rock, similar to pumice, and is comprised of the fossilized skeletons of diatoms, a type of hard-shelled algae. The shells are abrasive, and when crushed into a powder, create a deadly insecticide for fleas, ticks, mites, bedbugs, chiggers and other insects. DE works by making microscopic cuts in the exoskeleton of the insect as they pass through the powder; and then absorbing their bodily fluids, killing them. Its safe to apply DE to pet fur as a powder and gently rub or brush it through. Leave it on the pet, and within 24 hours, fleas will be dead. However, take care to protect the pet and owner from inhaling the dust, which can cause damage to the lungs. Shake the powder on carefully and close to the pets body to avoid creating a dust cloud. Ingested DE will not harm an animal and is useful for deworming instead of using veterinary chemicals ...

Prevention of Bug Bites, Stings, and Disease - Oxford Scholarship
Venoms from scorpions, spiders, centipedes, ants, wasps, and bees can be very poisonous, or induce serious allergic reactions. Blood sucking mites, ticks, lice, bed bugs, kissing bugs, sand flies, biting midges, black flies, mosquitoes, snipe flies, horse flies, tsetse flies, stable flies, and fleas cause irritation. More seriously, some of them can leave behind pathogens that cause serious diseases. This volume presents the full spectrum of methods necessary for prevention of bites and stings from the worldwide variety of bloodsucking and venomous arthropods. The first step is identification of the problem by identifying the bug, knowing where the bug occurs, and deciding whether or not the problem is seriously connected to health problems. The next step is to build the bugs out of the personal environment of the home and its surrounding property. If those methods do not give complete relief, insecticides can sometimes provide the solution. Barriers like screens and doors can at least help when people

Western Conifer Seed Bug | JP McHale Pest Management, Inc
The Western Conifer Seed Bug typically makes home in the Northeastern part of the United States during the months of June-November. They typically make their entry into your home or office building via apartments and windows, especially during the winter, to make their camp during the cold months of the year in the comfort of your home. These bugs develop on various types of plants and pines, and when disturbed do dispel a bizarre odor as a defense that smells somewhat piney. Because of the odor that these bugs are capable of causing, some refer to them as the stink bug. While they can be quite a nuisance, they are harmless to people. It is hard to keep this bug out of a home. You must be prepared for them. One way to keep them out of your homes is to carefully seal the exterior openings of your house in late summer and early fall..

The Australian researchers hope the test will also have other applications like identifying agricultural and quarantine pests.. Virologist Dr Mark Gibbs and team at the Australian National University report the basis of a new gene chip test in a recent issue of the journal BMC Bioinformatics.. The development relies on the researchers identifying key DNA sequences, or genetic markers, that distinguish one bug from another.. A great diversity of bacteria can cause infection and it is important to identify which one youre dealing with, says Gibbs.. Identifying bugs via their DNA currently involves a specific test for each bug. And as these tests can be costly, only the most common bugs are tested for. So this means less-common or newly emerging bugs are not picked up immediately.. A single test. Gibbs is hoping to develop a single ...
