Bedbugs are parasitic insects of the Cimicid family that feed exclusively on blood.
Bedbug bites can be infected with at least 28 human pathogens, no studies have found that the insects are capable of transmitting any of these to humans.
If you suspect that you have bed bugs in your home, try looking for the tiny white or brown-colored bugs in the seams of mattresses. Or check for tiny bloodstains or insect waste on the sheets. Bed bugs can be found most often in the seams, folds, edges and labels of mattresses, and tend to be found around beds or couches but there are also cases where they have been found in the cracks and crevices of walls, furniture and floors.
While bed bugs are tiny, it does not take an expert to find the bugs by looking at the above bed bugs pictures. However, these critters can be notoriously hard to get rid of since they can survive for more than a year without food until a new host comes along. To prevent against an infestation, entomologists and pest control experts recommend using an Integrated Pest Management approach.
