When you think of bed bugs, you probably think of small, reddish bugs. These bugs are about one-quarter inch long, with a round head and tail and two antennae on their crowns. They also have six legs on each side. Many people misidentify them, so it’s important to learn how to spot them.
Bedbugs feed on blood to grow and develop. This allows them to breed quickly. They live in soft furnishings such as mattresses, pillows, and pillows. They can also live in closets, curtains, and other soft furnishings. If you find them, you should take action. You can spray your furnishings with insect repellent, place mattress covers on them, or get them fumigated.
Adult bed bugs are brown in color with two front wings but can’t fly. They are about four millimeters long and 1.5 to three millimeters wide. The newly hatched bed bugs are translucent. These bugs are difficult to spot, as their physical appearance is similar to that of common household insects.
Bedbugs feed by biting animals and humans and suck their blood. After they have fed, they will leave behind clear skins. Then they will return to their hiding places. They usually take around 35 days to reach maturity, at which point they are easier to spot.
