Common bedbugs are visible to naked eyes. The adult bedbugs can be found in a range of brown to reddish-brown colors. They are oval-shaped and flattened and measure approximately 1/4 to 5/8 inches long. They can hide in cracks and crevices because of their flattened shape. The body will become larger and more swollen after a blood meal. Eggs are not intended to be placed on the host but can be found on surfaces near where the host sleeps, nests, or is exposed to the elements. Bed bugs have a distinctive, beak-like mouthpart system that is piercing-sucking. The wings pads of adult bed bugs are stubby and non-functional. Nymphs are nearly colorless when they hatch and become brownish as they age. The Nymphs are like adults. The eggs are approximately 1/32 inches long and white.
Bed bugs prefer to be fed on humans but they can also be found eating other animals such as birds, mice, and rats. They feed mostly at night, but they will also feed during daylight hours in rooms that aren’t being used at night. Three stages go through the life of a bed bug: egg, nymph, and adult. The females lay approximately 200 eggs per day in cracks and crevices on the floor or in bed. After receiving a blood meal, the eggs are laid by females. The eggs will turn into nymphs in one to two weeks. Newly hatched nymphs begin feeding immediately. At room temperature, the nymph’s time period can last anywhere from 14 to 30 days. Bed bugs lose five times as much skin before becoming adults. They can produce eggs in as little as four to nine weeks if they have mated.
They are not carriers of diseases. Although they do suck blood from their hosts with their piercing bites and bites, it is rare for them to inflict pain. The salivary fluid the bed bugs inject into your skin can cause irritation and swelling. A small, white, hardened, swollen welt may form at the bite site. They don’t live below the skin. Itching and stinging may occur throughout the day.
