What Do Bed Bugs Look Like?
Now that you know a bit more about bed bugs, it is time to learn more about what they look like.
There are several pictures located here as an aid in identification. It is important to read the necessary information about them as well. Bed bugs are commonly mistaken for other pests in the home. As such, you may think you have bed bugs when in actuality you have some other pest lurking there.
If you plan to treat bed bugs, you need to have proper identification of these insects. Here are some key points to help you to identify them.
- In their adult stage, they are brown to a reddish tint of brown.
- They are an oval shape but also flattened out.
- In size, the adult bed bug is about 3/16 to 1/5 of an inch long.
- When they have had a meal, the bed bug is swollen looking. They will be longer now and have a dark red color to them.
- On the front of their heads, they have what looks like a beak that allows them to pierce and suck from their mouths.
- Adult bed bugs have wings. However, they can not fly. They are small in size and are very short looking.
- The eggs of bed bugs are white or colorless. They will darken in their color as they mature. Eventually they will have a brownish tint to them when they mature.
- The nymphs look a lot like that of the adult bed bugs in their appearance, just smaller in size.
Here are some pictures of bed bugs that can often be used as an aid in distinguishing them:
Here is a picture of a one. In this picture, the bed bug has not eaten and therefore has it’s tell tale flattened look about it.
In this picture, you can see the size difference between a bed bug that has eaten and one that has not. As they eat, they become elongated and swollen.
In the following picture, take the time to notice what the bed bug looks like in various stages of its life. The bed bug is commonly found in the same area at all these stages. If you have adult bed bugs, you will also have eggs. This is what makes it hard to treat them because, you may kill off the adults but, the eggs may still be present.
The Life Cycle Of The Bed Bug
In this final picture, you can see just how small a bed bug really is. This shows just how hard it can be for you to notice that they are there.
Remember that it is quite hard to really tell if a pest that you find in your home is actually a bed bug. For example, if you live in an area that may have several closely related species; you may find out you do not have bed bugs after all. If you live in the midwest of the United States, you may think that you have found bed bugs in your home. But, it is much more likely that you have found a bat bug instead. If you suspect that you may have them, contact a local inspector to help you to identify them.
