WHAT ARE BED BUGS?
BED BUGS: A parasitic insect which feeds exclusively on blood. The name ‘Bed Bug’ comes from the preferred habitat for the insect – warm homes, especially near beds or bedding.
Although they’re called bed bugs, these pests do not live in only beds. Your home’s baseboards, carpeting, sofas and other furniture are all posh resorts to bedbugs, and at night they come out to dine on your blood, an all-you-can-eat buffet to them.

WHAT DO BED BUGS LOOK LIKE?
Bed bugs are hard to see, as they’re only 4 – 5 millimeters long. So, the average bed bug is the size of an apple seed. They are a reddish-brown insect and their bodies are flat.
