What do bed bugs look like?

Bed bugs are insects. A few types of bed bugs live in association with people. The common bed bug, and the bat bug, are often found in homes in the northeastern United States. Adult bed bugs are reddish-brown or straw-colored, are wingless, and have oval shaped bodies. Their upper bodies are covered with short, golden hairs. Before feeding, they are about the size of a pencil eraser and nearly as flat as a piece of paper, which is why they can fit into such narrow crevices. After they have fed they become bloated and dark red.

Bed bug eggs are white, slightly pear-shaped and about 1/32" long, about the size of a pinhead. They are found in crevices in groups of 10–50 eggs. Newly hatched bed bugs are nearly colorless but resemble the adults, only smaller. You may find adults, young, and eggs all in the same location.
