Bed bugs.

Preserve your mattress from bed bugs

Since December 2023, all fabrics supplied by Campos to Colchones Gomarco are treated with a compound called Permethrin.

The bed bug infestation in Spain has increased by 71% in the first nine months of 2023, according to a report by the company Anticimex1. The highest incidence is being reported in Madrid, Catalonia, Valencia, the Balearic Islands, and Aragon.

Bed bugs (Cimex lectularius) are hematophagous insects that feed on human blood and other warm-blooded animals. They do not fly and hardly move, so they tend to hide near the bed to bite during the night.

Luis Quevedo, a science communicator, has explained that the rise in temperature is one of the suspected factors behind the increased presence of bed bugs in Spain. It is still unknown how it will affect them in the long run, but in the context of climate change, with these two years of intense heat, these creatures reproduce more rapidly. If it used to take a month for them to lay eggs and have a new generation, now it can be reduced to less than two weeks.

What are bed bugs and what do they do?

Bed bugs are small insects that feed on human or animal blood. Their bites can cause itching, skin irritation, and, in severe cases, allergies. These nocturnal parasites impact the quality of sleep and can leave stains on mattresses, causing discomfort and concerns for the health and well-being of individuals.

How can they reach your mattress?

Bed bugs can enter mattresses through travel, used clothing, contaminated furniture, or even be transported by pets. Staying vigilant and maintaining hygiene practices are crucial to prevent their unwanted presence.

How can you prevent bed bugs?

For the mattress, maintain good hygiene in the room, regularly wash bedding at high temperatures, and inspect nearby furniture. Avoid buying used furniture without proper inspection.
