Bed bugs, because they’re elusive, can be a challenge. And qualified experts had trouble getting them exterminated. If you believe that you have bed bugs because of frequent bite marks on the head, locate any evidence immediately and accurately determine whether the pest is a bed bug.

It is critical that you conduct a thorough room inspection to identify all the harbor sites and evaluate the cause and scale of the infestation. The bed is the first place to look, as the pests prefer to live in the resting place of the host.

When inspecting you need to learn what to check for and you need some devices. To order to properly classify the insect you will always grasp the fundamental biology.

The biology of bed bugs

The bed bug eggs are about 1 mm long and around 0.5 mm high, with an egg cap (operculum). The eggs are black and opaque in color.

The bug on the adult bed is reddish-brown in colour. When unfed it has an oval and dorso-ventrally flattened shape. The bug is wingless and with cutting mouthpieces between 5-7 mm in thickness. When unfed, it is light yellow-brown in color, but shifts upon feeding to a deeper reddish-brown hue.

It has a small broad head in the ventral groove with prominent pupils, a pair of 4 segmented antennas and 3 segmented proboscis. This is rather unique, and can be easily recognized. Nymphs are tiny forms of slender cuticulated humans. Nymphs are translucent in color and size range from 1.3 mm to 5 mm as they pass through five instars.
