Bed Bugs overview

 Bed bugs are parasitic insects that are enjoying resurgence after several years’ dormancy. An adult bed bug is reddish-brown in color and has a flattened oval shape appearance. Only 1/4 of an inch in length, these tiny insects are wingless and have microscopic hairs that give them a banded appearance. Bed bugs are nocturnal creatures that feed only on blood. They prefer human blood whenever available but will also feed on other warm-blooded animals. An adult Bed Bug is about the size and color of an apple seed when fully engorged with blood. Before feeding, an adult can be as thin as a finger nail.


Myth: You can’t see a bed bug.

Reality: You should be able to see adult bed bugs, nymphs and eggs with your naked eye.

Myth: Bed bugs live in dirty places.

Reality: Bed bugs are not attracted to dirt and grime; they are attracted to warmth, blood and carbon dioxide. However, clutter offers more hiding spots.

The gritty details about bed bugs.


Bed Bugs are typically found on or in close proximity to one’s bed. However, because of their mating process, females instinctively flee the group and will end up hitching a ride on clothes or belongings. Therefore, Bed Bugs can be found just about any place that humans frequent.


Typically a person will not feel the bite of a Bed Bug. Similar to a flea or mosquito bite, the level of reaction will vary from person to person and usually won’t itch until a day or two after and for some, never at all. Unlike other biting insects, Bed Bugs tend to leave bites in rows or groups.
