Bedbugs are blood sucking insects that have a flat head and a flat oval body. Young bed bugs are yellow-white in colour and change to a light reddish brown as they mature. They are about 4 – 5 mm long (less than ¼ inch).

Signs that you have an infestation

  • Small dark 'blood spot' stains on walls and sheets - stains are from bed bug excretions.
  • Skins shed from the early life stages of the bed bug.
  • A sweet sickly odour.
  • Live insects - Despite their small size it is possible to see adult bed bugs.
