Bed bugs range in size from 0.125 inches to 0.25 inches. They feed off warm-blood mammals such as humans and animals and are active at night. While their bites are not painful, they can irritate the skin and cause itching. Some of the bites can cause systemic poisoning.
There is resurgence in the past decade of bed bugs in developed countries like Singapore due to international travel, migration, changes in pest control practices and insecticide resistance. While bed bugs are commonly found in unsanitary environments, they can also be found in sanitary places as they latch onto clothing or luggage. Thus, places like hotels, cruises, homes, homeless shelters and older apartments are common infestation grounds with small crevices in the wall, mattress and furniture as good hiding places.
