It may be every vacationer’s worst nightmare, but bed bugs are not a threat solely to travelers, as these parasitic insects can also be picked up at movie theaters, retail stores, public libraries, and other common locations. Once in your home, bed bugs can be painful emotional & physical nuisances and almost impossible to eradicate on your own. Bed bugs will use their sharp proboscises, or beaks, to break through human skin and consume blood.
Sounds alarming, but are you in the dark about the signs of a bed bug infestation?
What do bed bugs look like?
The adult bed bug is about the size of an apple seed, and the youngest nymphs (babies) can be the size of a speck of dirt. The unfed nymphs are light-colored, whereas a bed bug that has fed will be red, rust, or brown in color.
