Bed Bugs

Bed bugs are insects and are members of the Cimex lectularius family. All bed bugs feed on the blood of birds or mammals, and the bed bugs that infest our home and businesses daily prefer to feed on the blood of people. Bed bugs find their hosts through body heat and the carbon dioxide produced during the breathing process. These oval-shaped insects lack wings, and move from location to location by hitchhiking. They have mahogany-brown bodies, and adults grow to about 1/4 inch long. They have specialized mouthparts (proboscis) they use to pierce the skin of their host and feed on their blood; after feeding, their bodies swell, increase in size, and turn a purplish-red color.

Bed bugs

Immature bed bugs (nymphs) closely resemble adults, but are much smaller and, until they have their first blood meal, are yellowish or translucent in color. After feeding, they turn a bright red. Bed bug eggs are only the size of a pinhead and are white; generally, only a professional is able to detect the presence of their eggs.
