Q: Do Bed Bugs Have Wings?

The short answer is no.

Q: How do bed bugs fly around Singapore?

Bed bugs have six legs and no wings. They can’t fly or jump, but are quick to crawl on people’s belongings when they move around and hitch a ride by hiding in luggage or clothing.

Q: Do Bed Bugs Fly into Houses?

Even the cleanest home can get bed bugs. Although many homeowners think that bed bugs enter their homes via open doors, windows and other entry points, they do not have flight capable wings and cannot fly into a building. Bed bugs are most often picked up by visiting:

  • Airports
  • Dorm rooms
  • Hotels and motels
  • Public areas: shopping malls, shop houses, etc.
  • Other households

These insects have few options for movement, so they latch onto fabric that might function as an item they infest and use for transport inside a home. Once the pests get inside a house, they spread quickly. They are also sometimes found in taxis, rental cars, and other forms of public transportation.

Unlike most insects, bed bugs only feed on blood and are not interested in food. This makes them the insect least likely to enter into a human space unless they have been lured by a “blood meal”. When fed, bedbugs leave their homes for months at a time, spreading disease with each bite from infested mattresses or couches.
