Bedbugs are small, wingless insects that feed on the blood of mammals.
As bedbugs do not fly, they must either crawl or be passively transported in clothing, luggage, furniture, books and other objects used as harbourage.
Both juveniles and adults live similar lives, hiding away in cracks and crevices for most of the time and coming out at night, to feed on the blood of their sleeping hosts. Their hiding-places will be close to where their hosts sleep: in the bed frame or the Mattress; in furniture, behind the skirting, behind the wallpaper -anywhere that affords a dark harbourage during the daylight hours for these nocturnal creatures.
Their ability to withstand many months without feeding increases their chances of surviving transportation and the insects' very wide distribution throughout the world demonstrates their success.
Any household, Hotel, B&B, Hostel can be invaded by bedbugs, most bedbugs infestations found in domestic premises are usually in the bedrooms.

Cockroaches carry a number of diseases such as dysentery, gastroenteritis, typhoid, poliomyelitis and salmonella. This makes them a significant public health risk.
These nocturnal pests spend their days hiding in cracks and crevices close to sources of food and water such as cookers and sinks, and so in a majority of cases it is not until numbers begin to rise that people realize they have a problem. Cockroaches will eat practically anything, and after feeding from waste bins and germ infested drains, they may then move across stored foods and work surfaces spreading disease along the way.
