Bed bugs (Cimex lectularius)
Bed bugs, a problem worldwide, are resurging, causing
property loss, expense, and inconvenience. The good news is that bed
bugs do not transmit disease. The best way to prevent bed bugs is
regular inspection for signs of an infestation.
Bed bugs (Cimex lectularius) are small, flat,
parasitic insects that feed solely on the blood of people and animals
while they sleep. Bed bugs are reddish-brown in color, wingless, range
from 1mm to 7mm (roughly the size of Lincolnís head on a penny), and
can live several months without a blood meal.
