Under optimal conditions, with regular access to blood meals, a bed bug can live anywhere from 6 to 12 months. However, in the absence of food, these insects can go into a dormant state and survive for several months. During their lifetime, female bed bugs can lay hundreds of eggs, which allows for rapid population growth if not managed or eradicated.
Bed bugs can indeed spread through clothes. These pests are expert hitchhikers, easily clinging onto garments when someone is in an infested area. When these infested clothes are transported to new locations, bed bugs can migrate and establish themselves in new surroundings. For instance, if a person visits an infested hotel room and bed bugs latch onto their clothing, they can unknowingly transport these bugs to their home. To prevent this spread, it’s recommended to wash suspected clothes in hot water and dry on high heat, as heat effectively kills bed bugs and their eggs.
Bed bug bites typically manifest as small, red, raised or flat welts on the skin. They are often itchy and can become swollen or inflamed. One distinguishing feature of bed bug bites is their pattern; they often appear in a line or cluster, as if the bug has bitten the individual multiple times while moving. This pattern is sometimes referred to as “breakfast, lunch, dinner.” It’s worth noting that reactions to bed bug bites can vary significantly among individuals. Some people may not exhibit any visible signs or symptoms, while others might experience an allergic reaction leading to larger red, swollen areas or even blisters. Additionally, the bites can take anywhere from a few hours to several days to appear, making it sometimes challenging to pinpoint when or where the exposure occurred.

Always take safety precautions when using any treatment, and when in doubt, consult with a pest control professional.
