When it comes to bedbugs, Kansas City has a problem. You may find bedbugs in Kansas City homes, apartments, dorms, nursing homes, hotels, and even cars and trucks. They travel from one area to another on furniture, luggage, boxes, clothing, or other fabric pieces like curtains, blankets, and linens. Their flattened bodies make it possible for them to fit into tiny spaces, about the width of a credit card. Once an area is infested, they are extremely difficult to get rid of.
Bedbugs do not fly, but they can move quickly over floors, walls, and ceilings. They are quite prolific and can multiply rapidly. Female bedbugs in Kansas City may lay hundreds of eggs, each of which is about the size of a speck of dust, over a lifetime. Immature bedbugs, called nymphs, shed their skins five times before reaching maturity and require a meal of blood before each shedding. Under favorable conditions the bugs can develop fully in as little as a month and produce three or more generations per year. Adult bedbugs are very small, about the size of a tick. In fact, they are often mistaken for ticks or small cockroaches, so we do not always get a call for an infestation as soon as we might like
