Bed bugs pictured here are known for their preferred habitat in mattresses, sofas, and other furniture but can be found almost anywhere. They came to America from early colonists from Europe.
Bed Bugs pictured here feed on the blood of humans and other warm blooded hosts. Adult bedbugs are reddish-brown, flattened, oval, and wingless, with microscopic hairs that give them a banded appearance. A common misconception is that they are not visible to the naked eye. Adults grow to 4–5 mm (1/8th – 3/16th of an inch) in length and do not move quickly enough to escape the notice of an attentive observer
Bed Bugs pictured here are mostly active at night but they are not purely nocturnal..They are called by several names including wall louse, mahogany flat, and many more
Although bedbugs can live for a year or eighteen months without feeding, they normally try to feed every five to ten days Bedbugs travel easily and quickly along pipes and boards, and their bodies are very flat, which allows them to hide in tiny crevices.
The gel-based insecticides primarily used today to control cockroach and ant populations have no effect on bedbugs, as bed bugs are not attracted to baits..
The common bedbug (Cimex lectularius) is the species best adapted to human environments. It is found in temperate climates throughout the world and feeds on blood.
