Bed Bugs

An adult bed bug measures from 5 to 7 mm long. The body is rather oval, very flat and covered with fine golden hair. This insect has no wings.

On an empty stomach, a bed bug is brown to yellowish brown. Once engorged, it becomes reddish brown and looks like a small apple seed.

Bed Bugs are an ectoparasite to humans that is to say that they live on or nearby humans. They usually live in small groups and spend their days hidden in crevices and cracks in homes. The furniture, mattress, door frames, windows, tables, and light switches are all insect shelters.

Bed bugs benefit from human movement to explore new surroundings.
