Bed bugsjust the thought of them makes you itchy, doesn't it? These tiny critters feed on human blood and love to hide in and around the cracks and corners of our beds. And even though they don't carry disease, they do cause an itchy red rash.

New research suggests bed bugs first emerged about 100 million years ago, predating dinosaurs like T Rex. The pests survived the asteroid that led to the mass extinction of dinosaurs. Eventually, their favorite meal became bats and humans that inhabited caves in the Middle East. In ancient civilizations, the bugs were sometimes used as a home remedythe Egyptians used to put them in asnake bite treatment.

Bed bugs can be found all over the world, but the worst infestation problems tend to occur in developed countries where people use bed frames and soft bedding. Between 1930 and 1980, they were almost eliminated because the insecticide DDT were used to tackle infestations, but since DDT was banned, there's been a huge increase. Many are now immune to today's pest control chemicals. And increased levels of international travel are helping fuel the problem, as bed bugs can travel on clothing and in luggage. These are the 8 signs you're about to have a bed bug problem.

The U.S. cities with the the most bed bug infestationsthat pest control company Orkin had to address in 2018 include Baltimore, Chicago, and Los Angeles. The states with some of the worst records for infestations are New York, California, and Floridabut bed bugs are found all over the country.

Bed bugs are very difficult to eradicate, especially the eggs, so it's important to try to prevent an infestation in the first place. Follow the steps in this detailed guide. But once they're established, they breed rapidly. An adult will lay around 250 eggs in her life cycle, and those eggs take only six to ten days to hatch.

It is possible to treat your home yourself? Here's our DIY guide to getting rid of bedbugs. If you've tried and still have a problem, professional help will be needed to eliminate them completely. Next, find out the 16 secrets bed bugs don't want you to know.

INFOGRAPHIC | Scroll Down To See Where Your City Ranks

CBC News

Wednesday, January 16, 2019, 6:06 PM -Don't let the bed bugs bite, Hamilton because they're out there.

Hamilton ranked seventh on a list of Canada's top bed bug cities in 2018, according to pest control company Orkin Canada.

"Bed bugs are constant in Hamilton," said John Baardman, a local Orkin technician.

"The population isn't going down as far as I can see."

(RELATED: Bed bugs are now pesticide resistant)

The company's list is based on the number of commercial and residential bed bug treatments it completed in 2018.

Toronto took the top spot, followed by Winnipeg then St. John's.

Terry Quinn, city project manager, said Hamilton is not unique bed bugs have been spreading across North America and affecting all cities.

The Orkin bed bug ranking doesn't surprise him, Quinn said because Hamilton is among the top 10 largest cities in Canada, so "I'd expect we'd be in the top 10."

Bed bugs can happen to anyone and in any place, he said, although they spread most easily in multi-unit buildings like condos, apartments and hotels.

But nobody is immune to the bed bug bites.

"As long as there's a human that's sleeping, the bed bug will attack," Baardman said.

Orkin Canada's made its list based on how many commercial and residential bed bug treatments it did in 2018. Click to see a larger image. (Orkin Canada)

The critters feed on human blood and are "finely tuned to be with human beings," he added.

Quinn said the city started seeing a resurgence of bed bugs within the last decade.

In late 2015, the city approved a $1 million bed bug strategy.

Quinn said they've noticed changes in awareness and landlord action since starting the strategy, and are hoping to extend it past June 2019.

"It's a significant issue," Quinn said. "It really depends building to building."

The city has more information on finding, preventing and managing bed bugs here.

If you have bed bugs, you may see a reaction to on your skin, tiny black droppings on bed sheets and frames, and the bugs themselves, according to Baardman.

"Bed bugs love cracks and crevices," he added, and are especially prevalent in bed box frames so people should check in the tufts and seams of their top mattress and box spring.

The bugs are also territorial and will branch out to other parts of the bedroom as the population grows.

They may start living in headboards, Baardman said, and behind pictures and mirrors and as the population gets really big, you could find them in curtains or window and door frames.

"It's at that pint you have a very serious infestation, but it happens often," he said.

Bed bugs can happen to anyone, said city project manager Terry Quinn. Unlike with other pests, human beings are their bait.

The city also recommends looking along bedroom baseboard cracks, around tables and night stands and in the cracks and corners of furniture, among other places.

If you find bed bugs, Baardman recommends catching one and putting it in a plastic bag, so experts can identify it.

Want to prevent the unwelcome pests? Then be aware of who's in your bed.

"A very common way to get bed bugs is to spend the night with somebody who has them," Baaderman said.

And be cautious of what you're bringing home especially used items like clothing, furniture, or book spines.

(RELATED: Everything you've ever wanted to know about bed bugs)

Among its recommendations, the city says to check luggage and immediately wash and dry all clothes after returning from a trip.

Baardman also recommends keeping your place clutter-free.

"It's much easier to find bed bugs if you live in a simple environment."

If you think your sheets or clothing are infested, Orkin Canada suggests drying them on the highest heat possible.

Bed bugs are "good hitchhikers," the company stated, so "early detection is the best way to reduce the chances of an infestation."

Orkin Canada says the country's bed bug problems have grown in the past two decades. Travelling leads to more bed bug opportunities, as does greater density in living and working spaces, a spokesperson said.

Although Hamilton finished 13th on the company's 2017 list, Baardman doesn't think the city's bed bug problem necessarily got worse last year he just believes more people are calling his company.

"It was very bad a few years ago and it's still very bad right now," he said.

Bedbugs are unlike other kinds of pests, Quinn noted.

"They're not coming for food scraps of unsanitary conditions," he said. "They're coming for you."

Insect Repellent Active Ingredients Market worth $1,361 million by 2026 - Exclusive Report by MarketsandMarkets - PR Newswire UK

Posted by: Mr Bed Bug in Canada Bed Bugs on May 31st, 2021

Theyre everyones least-favorite house guestsand no, were not talking about in-laws. Were talking about bed bugs: the tiny, sneaky pests that can take over your home and start their own extended family in the comfort of your bedding and furniture. Did we mention they bite, too?

Bed bugs are increasingly common in residential settings, but that doesnt make them any more comfortable to deal with. These crawling critters are out for blood (literally), and theyll stop at nothing to get it from you. And lets be realno one wants to wake up with a bunch of painful bite marks.

When dealing with bed bugs, it helps to be informed so you know what to expect. Thats why weve combed over Orkins massive bed bug knowledge database and picked out five key facts every homeowner should learn about these nighttime nuisances.

They have a flat, broad, oval shaped body and dark brown colouring. Adult bed bugs are very small (4-5 mm long) but still visible to the naked eyeso you can put the microscopes away.

These pests are speedsters. Bed bugs have been recorded traveling at about a meter a minute. For a human, of course, thats nothing. But at a bed bugs size, its a full-on sprint. In fact, its the equivalent of a person running the length of a football field four and a half times in 60 seconds.

Bed bugs are nocturnal pests, meaning they prefer to feed at night. Typically, they are most active between the hours of midnight and 5 a.m. But theyre also not too picky about timing and will seek a food source during the day if they get hungry.

Research from the University of Cincinnati has shown that bed bugs can carry almost 50 pathogens, which they leave behind in fecal matter. Fortunately, transmission of these pathogens to humans remains undocumentedbut we can all likely agree that having pathogens spread across our homes isnt ideal.

Bed bug populations can double about once every 16 days. That means if you have 500 bed bugs today, you could end up with 1,000 in just over two weeks. Yikes.

Now that you know the most interesting facts about bed bugs, its time to take steps to keep them from taking over your living space. The risk is real, but it can be greatly reduced with professional assistance. Call your Orkin Canada branch today to learn how to protect your home from bed bugs and keep yourself, your family and your guests out of harms way.

ACCELERATED PLANT GROWTHA small quantity of CO2will increase the growth rate of plants. Allow the dry ice to sublimate in close proximity to the plants for 10-15 minutes daily.

ASPHALT COOLINGUsing dry ice allows for the delicate asphalt to stay at required temperatures during transport from the manufacturing plant to job site. Even more beneficial, using dry ice allows contractors to speed up the cooling process and core the paving sooner.

BED BUG REMOVALInfestation of bed bugs has become a serious problem because most of the chemicals used to control them are now banned or restricted. Removal of small infestations or testing whether you have them is possible by building a trap using dry ice.

BROKEN FREEZERUse dry ice to keep freezer contents frozen during breakdowns.Click for Dry Ice Calculator.

BROKEN REFRIGERATORUse dry ice to keep refrigerator contents cool during breakdowns.Click for Dry Ice Calculator.

CAMPINGDry ice provides the most effective and inexpensive means to keep perishables chilled or frozen.

CARBONATE LIQUIDSWhen dry ice is added to liquids, the dry ice will sublime and become a gaseous CO2vapor. During this process, the liquid will absorb the CO2gas and become a carbonated liquid, AKA Soda pop, Sparkling water, etc. CO2is extensively used around the world in the beverage and soda industry

CHEMOTHERAPYMany cancer patients undergoing chemotherapy treatments have found the use of super cooled cold caps to be an effective way to reduce or prevent hair loss

CONTAINMENT TANK REPAIR / REMOVALDry ice will remove oxygen from flammable containment tanks if placed inside, reducing the risk of flammable vapors catching spark and exploding

DE-FLASHING MOLDED PLASTICS AND RUBBER Dry icecauses molecules to band closer together and shrink.

DRY ICE BLASTINGDry ice blasting has become the fastest growing application of CO2in the entire industry. Similar to sand blasting, dry ice blasting uses a jet nozzle and compressed air to shoot small pellets of dry ice (blasting rice) with superior results. The extreme cold causes targeted material to shrink, allowing for easier removal. The used blasting rice will sublimate into gaseous CO2after use which makes cleanup a breeze.

FISHING / HUNTINGEnthusiasts wait entire lifetimes for the one chance to bag the elusive trophy animal or catch the perfect wall decoration. Dont let it spoil, use dry ice! Keeping your animal or fish chilled with dry ice will ensure minimal spoilage during transportation.

FLASH FREEZING SUSHI / FISHDry ice can be used to flash freeze fish, ensuring freshness and prolonging preservation time by up to ten days longer than regular ice. This method also acts as a biocide and is FDA required before sushi can be sold for consumption.

FOG VISUAL EFFECTDry ice when combined with hot tap water will produce and awe-inspiring display of bubbling water and thick voluminous fog. Use a pound of dry ice for every 4L of hot water for 5-10 minutes of maximum effect. Since dry ice retains a temperature of -78C, the water will cool rapidly. Replace with hot water to maintain desired effect.

FREEZING FRESH FRUITSPlace dry ice in the bottom of your cooler and the fruit directly on top. Close cooler and let fruits freeze for 20-30 minutes. Remove fruit and place in freezer safe plastic bags as needed.

FRESH MEAT PROCESSINGDry ice will keep the temperature cold and reduce spoilage while processing meat. This is used in industrial processing of ground meats and sausages.

GREEN BURIALSDry ice can be used to preserve the human body until the funeral. This method has been proven more environmentally friendly than the use of toxic, embalming chemicals, and MUCH less expensive.

INERTING MEDIUMDry ice will replace oxygen in a container preventing or extinguishing fires. The most common use is for safely removing underground gas storage tanks.

KILLS CLOTHES MOTHSDry ice, when combined with heavy plastic bags can kill moths, larvae, and eggs through fumigation. Place clothes for fumigation in a plastic bag (at least 3mm thick). Wrap 5 pounds of dry ice in a towel/rag and place inside the bag. Seal the bag but ensure there is enough space for the sublimation to escape rather than building pressure. 20-30 minutes should be adequate time to finish the job.

LURES MOSQUITOS AWAYMosquitos love dry ice! Mosquitos are attracted to both animals and humans is because when exhaling, we produce small amounts of CO2(Carbon Dioxide). When CO2is detected by a mosquito, is registers the location of its next meal of blood. As dry ice sublimes to CO2gas, it is equivalent to over 1,000 people breathing at the same time in a close proximity. Therefore the mosquito will zoom in on the dry ice because of the high concentration of 100% pure CO2gas that dry ice expels. Place 5-10 pounds pieces of dry ice away from areas where people are gathered. Works amazing!

MEDICAL USESThere are a number of applications in the medical field. Doctors will often use dry ice to freeze and remove warts or other skin imperfections. Temperature sensitive medical supplies, samples, and equipment are also commonly transported with dry ice as a cooling agent.

PLUMBINGDry ice can be used to freeze pipes, essentially stopping the flow of water at point of contact. This method is very useful if you are unable to access the main shutoff valve. Once the pipes are frozen, proceed with repairs.

PRESERVE SEEDS AND GRAINSDry ice can be used to protect post-harvested seeds and grains from bacteria, fungi, and insects. Place what you desire to store into a storage container with a small vent on top. Add dry ice to container (amount varies depending on container size). The dry ice will sublimate into gaseous CO2and displace oxygen and keep contents at low temperatures to kill fungi and bacteria

REMOVE CAR DENTSDry ice can be used to remove car dents and dings as long as there is no crease on the bottom and the sheet metal is not bent. Allow the dent to sit in the sun to warm up (or use a blow dryer). Take a 10 pound slab of dry ice and place directly over the dent. The rapid cooling of the metal will pop the dent back to normal. There is a very small risk of paint scratching with this method however it is quite rare (use at your own risk)

REMOVE SKIN IMPERFECTIONSDry ice is sometimes used either with or as a substitute to liquid nitrogen to remove small skin imperfections, warts, and moles. This method should not to be used at home.

SCHOOL SCIENCE & EXPERIMENTSThere are a multitude of fun, creative science projects and experiments to be used in schools. Volcanoes, cloud chambers, comets, making baking soda, observing sublimation, and gaseous expansion are some common school science projects.

SHRINK METAL FITTINGDry ice works wonders for metal shrinking and fitting.

SPECIAL FX & THEATRICSUsing a fog machine or buckets of hot water and a fan, many shows are enhanced by adding flowing fog.

WELDING MOTORCYCLE TANKS Use a similar method as when purging containment tanks, the main idea is to use the dry ice to sublimate and displace oxygen before welding. Be sure to eliminate all traces of fuel and wash out the tank with warm soapy water.

You might not expect to hear about bed bugs in an office building because of its name but government workers are quickly learning that's not the case. Bed bugs in a Canadian government building are keeping workers at home. Unfortunately, this isn't the first time critters have shown up in government buildings.

A government building located at 70 Crmazie Street in Gatineau is shut down all because of bed bugs found in the office. The shut down is for the rest of the week with only one floor actually remaining open to workers.

According to CTV News, the bed bugs were first found on one floor of the building last week. When a canine unit came in over the weekend, beg bugs were found on every floor in the building.

And this isn't the first time that government buildings in the area were impacted by bugs being found in them.

On October 4 an office just across the Ottawa river in the capital was found to have bed bugs in it. Then the next day it was reported that a kitchenette in the building would also be treated for cockroaches.

"Dealing with pests in this building is nothing new for us. Bed bugs were first reported and treated on the first floor of the building in March and April 2018," an employee of the bed bug and cockroach-infested building in Ottawa told CTV News.

A former employee also confirmed the pest problem on Twitter.

And another Canadian made the most of the news by turning into a funny joke.

Last year another government building was also shut down and fumigated because of spiders. Employees at the Shared Services Canada building were sent away from the office twice after spiders thought to be venomous were spotted on two different occasions.

The second time the spider was spotted was after the building was fumigated. Both times employees were told to work from home.

A spokesperson for the department told the CBC that the spider found wasn't actually the venomous spider it was originally thought to be.

People working in the Gatineau government building, which is the building for Immigration, Refugees and Citizenship Canada, are being told to work from home for the rest of the week or make arrangements to work somewhere else.

The one floor that remains open is the sixth floor where employees work with sensitive information and can't actually take their work home with them.

Hopefully, this is the last we hear of bugs infesting government buildings.

The University Of Toronto Has A Bed Bug Problem Of Its Own Now - Narcity

Posted by: Mr Bed Bug in Canada Bed Bugs on April 28th, 2021

The nation's federal buildings have a big problem, and they're looking for help. The bed bugs in Canada's government buildings have gotten out of hand. Now they are looking for pest control contractors to take care of the problem.

A tender notice posted December 19, 2019 on the Public Works and Government Services website indicates that pest management services were being sought out for buildings in Ottawa and the surrounding area, as well as a number of other Ontario cities. The posting closed on January 27.

A second posting on the website from February 3, 2020, is also looking for pest control management contractors to work in the national capital region. The closing date is March 16.

According to CBC News, 31 federal buildings in total have been treated for bed bugs in the last year. While 25 of those are located in Ottawa and the surrounding region, three more are in Toronto, two are in Hamilton, and one is in Waterloo.

Public Services and Procurement Canada told CBC News that all of these buildings did not have what would be considered a "high level infestation issue."

Contractors will also be required to inspect and possibly treat the vehicles and residences of government workers.

Canada's government buildings have already had a number of bad experiences with bed bug infestations. One located at 70 Crmazie Street in Gatineau had to be completely shut down due to the biting insects.

A second Gatineau federal office was found to have a major bed bug issue. In addition, there were also problems with mice, bats, and bad air quality.

Bed bug infestations can become a huge problem, as fully exterminating them can be difficult.

According to Pest Control Canada, bed bugs can live for a year without feeding, and females can lay 300 eggs at a time that hatch in just ten days.

According to a ranking by Orkin, Toronto has the worst bed bug problem in all of Canada, closely followed by Winnipeg, Vancouver, St. Johns, and Ottawa.
