Bed bugs love to hitchhike on luggage and are an increasing problem in Australia.
Although found in carpets, the cracks in wooden floors and walls and the seams of furniture they are most common in mattresses.
Small in size, they are attracted to warmth, and are most active at night biting areas of exposed skin while one sleeps. Their bite causing an allergic reaction which is displayed on the skin as itchy red welts usually not felt until some minutes or hours after the bite.
