Pictures of what Bed Bugs look like

Post date: December 12th, 2017

Bed Bug shown next to a finger for size comparison

In the photos below and attached slides, well show you exactly what bed bugs look like on human skin, a close up of an infested mattress showing the entire life cycle, in a cup (gross), next to a ruler for size comparison, crawling on the floor, hiding in a headboard, and even one caught crawling out of a stocking!

Because many of the pictures Im showing you are close ups, you might not realize how small they really are; an adult bed bug is the size of an apple seed except that it has legs and skin-piercing mouthparts to bite you with! And get this, when they are born, they are only a millimeter in size and because they are almost transparent, they blend in with the background (like your body).

Attacked! These people are covered with horrible bed bug bites!

Dont let their tiny size fool you into thinking theyre harmless! These little bugs know exactly where to hide, when and who (yes, they can be selective) to bite and have driven many of their victims insane.

We also have an incredible collection of photos showing people BITTEN and ATTACKED by these bugs as well warning, it may give you nightmares ;)

As you can see from the image below, this bug could easily be missed; the baby (1st instar) is extremely hard to find and is almost transparent until its first feeding! Notice how their body elongates and turn a reddish-brow color as they fill themselves with blood?

Here is a close up photo of a blood filled bed bug that burst open into the hand of a person searching for an infestation. You can clearly see the eggs, whats left of the bug, and the blood coming in contact with skin and who knows where that blood came from!

Before viewing the following slides, let me first give you an idea of what youll be looking at by showing you bed bugs caught in their natural habitat! Lets start with a close up picture of an entire life-cycle, from eggs, to shell casings, and finally to maturity. Keep in mind that this infestation went hidden for a very long time before being discovered!

What a cute picture of these two bed bugs living the life! The big one shed his shell while the other looks toward the eggs.

Another cure picture of bugs but the little little one appears to be shy and trying to hide. Notice the different sized shells, tells an entire story and helps give an idea of how long they have been hiding out there.

This image is a great example of what youll look for when trying to spot an infestation. Simply lift up the mattress out of the frame and if you see something that looks like this, then you need to act, and fast! Send us a photo if you do!

This was slide 1, there are more pictures of bed bugs, such as this one next to a ruler to give you an idea of how small these little blood suckers really are!

Also, check out these horrible pictures of bed bug bites when these bugs attack, they really do a number as they did on these people, and you never know it happened until the next morning!

Bed Bug Bites on back

Here you have some pictures of real bed bug bites. Bed bug bites most often look like a reddish rash of raised bumps on the skin. The exact reaction from the person bitten can depend on the severity of allergic reaction, skin sensitivity, your skin color, etc.

If you have bed bug bites, you will likely also have redness, swelling, and itching to accompany the red bumps. Keep mind that physicians are often not able to if it is a bed bug bit or note, because in all honesty, it is not easy to pinpoint exactly what bit you. The reason, as mentioned, is because the reaction varies from people to people. It is possible other insect bites could cause a similarly looking rash.

However, as you can see from the pictures, common places people get these bites are on the:

In case you have severe itching, aloe vera skin cream can relieve the discomfort to some degree.

Bed bug bites can happen in as little as 5 minutes for full feeding allowing one to multiply into thousands in a months time. If only a portion of that colony were to feed on you while youre sleeping, you could wake up to a body covered in bites!

Attacked by bed bugsThese blood suckers lock on to the carbon dioxide (CO2) release when sleeping. Once they have you, they head toward a warm part of your body and begin to bite. Two tubes are inserted into your body; one is used to inject a mixture of anticoagulant and anesthetic while the other is used to suck up your blood. You never notice the bites until you wake up and realize you were the main course!

Unfortunately, some victims dont realize they have been bitten for up to two weeks while others may react right away. Two weeks is a long time, and if you slept in multiple locations, it might be impossible to figure out which place had the infestation.

Below is an excellent example of how most bites turn out a clear pattern.

Notice the pattern on the hand? These bites are another great example of how bed bugs move on your skin when feeding.

These seven bites are all line up on the back of the arm(3) and also fed on the back of the leg near the vein. Visitor Concerned 80 said that the bites became swollen from scratching while half asleep.bed bugs bites on arm showing pattern of feeding

Just because you where bit seven times does not mean you have seven bedbugs these bugs will move in a pattern looking for the perfect feeding spot, so its possible that only one could have caused all that irritation!

These bloodsuckers love exposed areas of flesh such as closest to their nest such as the face, forehead, arms and known to attack babies.. Those repeatedly bitten over time are more likely to become sensitive. You may even find the person sleeping next to you does not show any signs of bed bug bites while you do. In fact, the person next to you may not have been bitten at all a good sign that the infestation is closest to you.

Julio didnt react well not to these bites, and they took a long time to heal!Julios arm was badly bitten and he didnt react well not to mention how long it took him to heal!

If you are unlucky, you may have a severe reaction like that shown below, which is unusual but may happen when attacked repeatedly.

Vanessa took her young son to the doctor and had confirmed these bites were from bed bugs. Look at the damage they did to his face! Its important not to scratch the area or scabbing may leave a scar. Vanessa explains what happened:

Vanessa: I am so glad I found your website. My family and I just returned from vacation two days ago, and my youngest children are covered with bed bug bites. At first, we did not know what they were. The bites started after the first night of staying there. They got increased in number and became worse over the week. We had no clue. Bed bugs never crossed our minds. I took them to the doctor as soon as we got home and we got the news. BED BUGS!

I was totally disgusted and freaking out! I still am! I cant sleep at night. I worry that we brought them home and feel my childrens pain, they are pitiful! The bites do not seem to be clearing up and itch like crazy. My husband and I only have a few each. I will never go on vacation again!

Another visitor, Ava, had her neck badly bitten by bed bugs. For many months, her baby boy had bite marks which doctors initially suggested might be scabies or fleas.

A few months later when Avas older son complained of his skin crawling in the middle of the night, she checked on the baby and found his bed frame and mattress covered with bed bugs with many in the process of feeding!

This poor child was helpless to do anything while being fed upon by bed bugs. If you ever see something like this, its an indication of an infestation close by, and it should be easy to locate the nest.

This is what can happen to you when you stay at an infested hotel. Here, Richard crashed out in his hotel room and was viciously attacked while sleeping can you imagine yourself waking up to this?

Below is Richards arm covered with more than 50 bites!

His thigh with multiple bites:

His calf was bitten as well!

Both his legs were covered with bites!

50 bites per arm! (ouch!) Many on his back including both the front and back of his legs. The itching was so bad that Richard ended up at Kaiser Permanente Hospital in Urgent Care. The doctors prescribed Antibiotic and Anti-Itching medicine. He ended up missing two days of work on top of it all.

With that many bites, Id say that this was a massive infestation and would guess the room improperly treated or not treated at all. If this ever happens to you, document everything and if possible, capture the bugs and confront the hotel there are multi-million dollar lawsuits over bites from bed bugs, and your attorney will love you for it!

The number of bites on Adams stomach helps emphasize how fast an infestation can grow in as little as 30 days! He is from Canoga Park California, and its clear just how red and swollen these bites can become.

The grouping of bites are circled in black.

After a lot of searching and almost giving up, Adam found, and collected the bed bugs and placed them in a plastic baggie. Needless to say, they were full of his blood.

The new problem is that he cant sleep now because hes afraid of being bitten again. He has used multiple bug bombs (which typically dont work and not the ideal solution) and also sprays which drove them into the walls.

Ross says this happened in a cabin while staying at Yellowstone National Park and his head wasnt the only part of his body they fed on; unfortunately, bed bugs bites covered his entire body!

Most disturbing is that Ross never felt a thing! These little blood suckers waited until he fell into a deep sleep, injected a form of anesthetic into his skin, and feed until they were full! Ross was clearly the main course!

Easily swipe through our many pictures of bed bug bites but be warned Some may cause you to have nightmares!

Afraid, a name used by one of the mothers visiting our website, shares the bites on her arm and what happens when you scratch them.

These appear all over her body, but this is the top part of the arm near the elbow.

Scratching will cause bleeding and can lead to infection.

Her whole body is covered in bites and gives you an idea of how much damage these bugs can really do.

WARNING! Do NOT scratch your bites, it can leave permanent scars!

HOME REMEDY: Baking Soda paste is the #1 home treatment for bites. Mix water with baking soda to make a paste that you then place on the area and let dry. Here are more details:

Other natural remedies for treating bed bug bites include:

OVER THE COUNTER MEDICATION:

MEDICATIONS PRESCRIBED BY A DOCTOR:

In Richards case, his doctor prescribed Calamine Topical Suspension USP, Cephalexin and Hydroxyzine HCL for the bed bugs bites.

The dermatologist did a biopsy: Below is Robs story of being repeatedly bitten by bugs and after a lot of research found out that indeed he had bed bugs thanks for sharing Rob!

I just discovered the cause of my skin reaction this morning. Been spending a lot of time at a friends place and started to get red spots that were intense and itch. It just got worse and worse. The dermatologist did a biopsy and found no bacteria or virus. Skin scrapping found no fungus. It was a matter of finding out what was causing my skin to become so swollen I couldnt see some of the bite marks. It only affected my legs, feet, arms, upper back, chest, neck, and shoulders. No midsection bites.

On Tuesday my arm became worse after spending the night at my friends place. At home, when I got out of the shower a bug near my jeans and killed it. I called my doctor to treat my arm and mentioned the bug. He saw me that day and put me on prednisone. Last night I took the antihistamine he prescribed, and it knocked me right out. I fell asleep on my friends shaggy carpet for about an hour and a half. As I awoke, I saw another bug run across my shorts.

I have a phobia about bugs, and so my friend helped me capture it so that I could show the doctor as he requested; the doctor put it under the microscope and pointed out the telltale signs.

In short, I was bitten by bed bugs from visiting my friends apartment. Ive sent in some pictures of the symptoms on my arms. Its such a relief to know what is causing my skin problems rather than thinking I had some disease.

Ive found that the locoid lipocream he gave me to be the most effective. He also gave a sample of foaming medication in a small can which didnt seem to work. The swollen areas were much worse that you would imagine, I experienced flat out pain by nighttime. I treated my arm 3x that day with the lipocream and by morning it was 100x better with significantly reduced redness and swelling.

Good luck to those dealing with similar issues, I feel your pain!

Rachel had a doctor prescribe her betamethasone valerate to relieve the itching. She says it works but doesnt get rid of the bites.

Bridgets Dr. prescribed a topical cortisone cream to stop the itching and told that diphenhydramine (Benadryl) would halt the itching too.

Julies Doctor suggested using teatree oil as a repellent and fucidin H on the spots. He suggested that I should spray everything with the green baygon even the mattresses.

The best way to identify a bed bug infestation is to look for brownish red insects in your mattress. If you cant find the bedbugs themselves, look for yellow egg shells and clear case skins near your mattress edges. Bite marks around your ankles or feet could also indicate a bedbug infestation. If you cant find these signs, but still think you might have an infestation, read on for more ways to identify bedbugs.

Bed Bug Life Cycle: Eggs, Nymphs,& Adult Stages

Post date: October 22nd, 2017

Bed bugs are nocturnal, reddish-brown insects that feed on the bloodof humans and other warm-blooded animals. These wingless insects have dorsoventrally flattened bodies that allow them to hide in areas such as floor cracks, carpets, beds and upholstered furniture.

A bed bugs life begins with an egg, grain like and milky white in color. Female bed bugs lay between one and five eggs each day and may lie up to 500 eggs within one lifetime. Eggs are laid singly or in clusters and are placed withintight cracks or crevices. The egg is approximately 1 mm in length and is comparable in size to two grains of salt. Within two weeks, eggs hatch and immature bed bugs begin immediately to feed.

These young bed bugs, or nymphs, pass through five molts before reaching maturity. Although nymphs appear similar to adults, they are smaller in size and are not yet sexually mature.Young nymphs are also yellow-white in color, while older nymphs and adults are reddish-brown. In order to complete a molting stage, each nymph requires a blood meal. At room temperature, nymphs molt and become adults within five weeks.

Upon reaching maturity, bed bug adults often make weekly feedings.

Adult Bed Bug

How Long Do They Live?The life span of a bed bug most commonly ranges from four to six months. However, some bed bugs may live up to a year under cool conditions and with no food.

Student backpack storage

Wall hooks are often used as a convenient place to store backpacks during the school day, but can lead to hitchhiking bed bugs moving from one backpack to another. Providing separate storage units for each student will help prevent the spread of bed bugs.
