Bedbugs are small insects active at night and feeding on human blood. They can infest homes and are best adapted to human environment. Adult bedbugs are 4-5 mm (1/8th-3/16th of an inch) in length, oval, flattened and reddish-brown or purple, wingless with microscopic hairs and well developed antennae on their heads.
Newly hatched insects are translucent and pale. Not difficult, since bedbugs do not move very quickly, can not fly and live in groups. During the daytime, the insects hide in bed frames, tiny crevices, wood holes and mattress seams.
