Bed bugs (Cimex lectularius) are nocturnal parasitic bugs.
Living with bed bugs is notoriously unpleasant. These opportunistic pests hide close to humans to sneak out and draw a blood meal without the host noticing them.
A bed bug injects saliva to numb the skin area it bites, so the bitten person does not feel pain. In addition, an anti coagulant in bed bug saliva lets blood flow freely, which the bed bug feeds upon.

Let’s dive into more facts and trivia about bed bugs!
Bed bugs are small, reddish-brown, and oval-shaped.
Nymphs are less than 5 mmlong, almost colorless, and extremely difficult to identify.
Bed bugs can produce three or more generations each year. Female bed bugs lay 200-500 eggs over their lifetimesat two to five eggs per day, on rough surfaces such as wood or paper near their hosts’ sleeping places, resting places, or both.
Bedbugs cover their eggs with a glue-like material, and the eggs hatch in 10 to 15 days at room temperature. Unfortunately, bed bugs’ eggshells frequently remain stuck in their place after hatching.
Bedbugs have five nymphal stages that need at least one blood meal before molting to the next stage.
The bedbug life cycle from egg to adult lasts for four months, influenced by temperature and availability of blood, which is their food. Bed bugs grow faster with the rise in temperatures.
Bed bugs can live for 20 to 400 days without food, depending on temperature and humidity. Older stages of bed bug nymphs can survive longer without feeding than younger ones, and adults have survived without food for more than 400 days in a laboratory at low temperatures.
Adult bed bugs may live up to one year or more, and there can be up to four successive bed bug generations per year.
2.What Attracts bed bugs?
Body heat and carbon monoxide from human breath attract bed bugs. In addition, bed bugs’ sense organs help them find the blood vessels closest to the skin’s surface.
3.How do bed bugs find their way to our homes?
As bedbugs’ presence has no relation to untidiness, you can also find them in clean hotel beds as they might get transported with luggage or travelers’ bags.
People may pick up bed bugs in theaters, on buses and trains, or by bringing infested clothing, bedding, furniture, and luggage.
Where and how can I spot bedbugs?
Recent shows that 85% of bed bugs are found in or near the bed. The remaining 15% of infestations are in furniture other than beds, in bedroom cabinets, along baseboards, under wallpaper, carpets, wall hangings, and similar hiding spots.
Bed bugs are more likely to harbor more in wood, paper, or fabric and less in metal or plastic.
Bed bug nymphs and adults feed at night and hide in dark cracks and crevices during the day, although hungry bugs may feed any time hosts are nearby and sedentary.
Common bed bug hiding spots occur six or fewer feet from where humans sleep or rest. You can find bed bugs in mattress seams and tufts, wooden joints of box springs, beneath covers, bed frames, behind headboards, under loose wallpaper, behind picture frames, and inside furniture.
