Bed bugs are small wingless insects that feed solely upon the blood of warmblooded animals. They are sometimes mistaken for ticks or cockroaches. A mature bed bug is oval-bodied, brown to red-brown in color, wingless and flattened top to bottom. Unfed bed bugs are 1/4 to 3/8 inch long. A bed bug that has recently fed is engorged with blood, dull red in color, and the body is elongated and swollen. Eggs are white and are about 1/25 inch long. Newly hatched bed bugs are nearly colorless or straw-colored.
Bed bug usually feed on exposed skin of the face, neck, hands, arms, and shoulders. Bites often result in large itchy welts.
