How to get rid of bed bugs through colours


Bed bugs, the nocturnal insects just like humans may have a preference for colours, they may have their favorite and least favorite colours. 

According to a BBC report. Researchers placed the insects among tent-like habitats made of different colours of paper and then let choose which to inhabit. 

The results of this experiment which was published in the Journal of Medical Entomology showed that the blood-sucking bugs choose the red and black, and distanced themselves from the yellow and green. 

The researchers gave a speculated explanation to this reaction to colours. They said that the bugs prefer the red due to the fact that they typically live in groups and red is the colour they display after gorging themselves on blood. (mostly human blood by the way). 

Secondly, like I said above these bugs are nocturnal, meaning they active during the night (mainly  because the hosts are unaware that they are being fed upon.) according to the researchers this explains why they dislike the brightness of yellow and green, and instead prefer the darkness of black. 

The researchers emphasize that this colour preferences hasn't been tested in any other context. 

But, if you have a problem with this creepy crawlies maybe you should consider redecorating.
