Pourquoi la punaise des lits s’est-elle installée chez moi ?

There is an upsurge in bed bugs in Canada and even the best maintained homes can be infested. At night, the bedbug attacks sleeping humans, but by day it hides in furniture and under baseboards, floors, rugs and wallpaper.

Bed bugs are attracted to heat and carbon dioxide released by humans. It is therefore particularly tempted by buildings with a high turnover rate with many apartments such as hotels and rental accommodation, where it intrudes by hiding in luggage or second-hand furniture.

It will move away six meters or more from its hiding place to feed, but it is usually found within two meters of its host, in heavy infestations that give off a sweet, but unpleasant odor.

Devrais-je m’inquiéter de la présence de punaises de lit ?

It is possible to find red spots of fecal matter on the bedding after a bedbug bite,
but it can be extremely difficult and maddening to find its hiding place.

It reproduces quickly, with the female laying up to 500 eggs in her lifetime. In just six months, a few insects can turn into a serious infestation of more than 13,000 parasites. The adult can survive a year on an empty stomach; the infestation can therefore persist even if you leave the premises.

Since the bedbug is an experienced illegal traveler and hides in places that are almost inaccessible, you will need to call on the expertise of a professional exterminator to get rid of it. Orkin Canada uses specially trained dogs to spot the hiding places of the bedbug and its eggs and applies a personalized control strategy that will rid you of the parasite for good.
