Bed bugs are small, nocturnal, wingless insects that belong to the family of 
Cimicidae. A newly hatched bed bug is semi- transparent, light tan in color,
and the size of a poppy seed. The adult bed bug does not have any wings 
and has a flattened body. They are about the size of an apple seed.

They feed on human blood and other warm-blooded hosts. 
They are oval in shape and grow up to 4-5mm long when fully grown. 

Not only are they dorsoventrally flattened, but they are also thin which creates a great advantage for them. They can hide in unusual places such as behind baseboards, floor cracks, and under carpets or behind loose wallpaper, which makes them difficult to detect.

Not only are they undetectable, but bed bugs also tend to stay close together and have a distinctively sweet, yet unpleasant smell. Blood spotting on mattresses and nearby furnishings are also signs of a bed 
bug infestation. Bed bugs can be easily confused with other small household 
insects, including carpet beetles, spider beetles and newly hatched cockroaches 

Bed bugs have existed since the ancient times and are found in temperate 
climates throughout the world. There are different types of bed bugs, but the 
common bed bug with a scientific name of Cimex lectularius, is adaptable to 
human environments.

In tropical regions, including Florida, other visible kind of species called Cimex 
hemipterus, are also known to swarm among poultry and bats. Other places, 
such as West Africa and South America, are home to the Leptocimex boueti 
species that infests bats and humans. On the other hand, the species that are 
found among bats are called Cimex pilosellus and C. pipistrella, and are lurking 
all over in North America, primarily in poultry farms.

Since they can survive in birds' nests, they can be seen in houses and buildings 
that have several bird nests, particularly on rooftops. They are also known to 
feed on bats or household pets, but their typical source of nutrition is human 

Bed bugs have a great worldwide distribution due to human travelers who 
transport luggage, clothing, bedding, and furniture. Though they may reside in 
unusual places, they are also likely to be found in small cracks near a bed or 
in comforters and bed
Once fertilized a female will lay 3 - 4 eggs every few days. (300-500 lifetime).

The eggs will hatch into a nymphs in 2 weeks at room temperatures.

 From egg to adult it will take 6-8 weeks on average.

 As they grow, they molt (shed their skin) five times before reaching maturity.

 A blood meal is needed between each successive molt.

On average adults live for 10 months to one year.

Bed bugs do not stay on humans normally but return to their hiding places after feeding, but if there is a heavy infestation, they might get into clothing and be transported.

They will "bite" multiple times at a feeding resulting in typical multiple bites in a line or a cluster.

Bed bugs are known to be capable of carrying up to 27 different pathogens such as Hepatitis B and HIV. Transmission to humans is considered unlikely. Fortunately there has never been a documented case of transmission to humans by bites. There is a risk of infection caused by people scratching bites which can become infected. Bed bugs have been known to cause anemia in extreme cases.

Recognizing a Bed Bug 
The Health Effects Of Bed Bugs 
Although bed bugs and their bites are a nuisance, they are not known to spread disease.

  • Bed bug bites can be very itchy and irritating. Most welts heal in a few days but in unusual cases, the welt may persist for several weeks. Usually an an-itching ointment will help, but if bites become infected, you should see your doctor.

  • The anxiety about being bitten can lead to sleeplessness, which can affect​ one's well being. Properly and effectively responding to bed bugs helps to keep anxiety in check.
