What Do Bed Bugs Look Like?

Bed bugs are nocturnal, blood-sucking insects with six legs, ridged brown bodies, and small wideset eyes positioned on opposite sides of the head. These features may be difficult to discern thanks to the bed bug’s tiny size, which ranges from a few millimeters when the bed bug is unfed, to about one quarter of an inch after feeding. However, there are other infestation warning signs that can help you identify bed bugs in your apartment or hotel, such as foul odors (which can be produced by bed bug pheromones) or dark stains on your mattress (which can be produced by crushed bed bug bodies or their excrement).

Identifying Bed Bug Bites

Different people experience different reactions to being bitten by bed bugs. Some people do not have any physical reaction, while others suffer serious health issues, described in greater detail in the section below. Most individuals develop small, pink welts, which may cause intense itching and discomfort. Some individuals may experience swelling and painful blistering in the bitten areas. Unfortunately, bed bug bites can leave permanent scars behind after they have healed.

Bed Bugs and Related Health Problems

Mental and physical health issues can arise from prolonged or even short-term exposure to bed bugs. Examples of health problems linked to bed bug infestations include:

  • Anaphylaxis – Anaphylaxis is a serious, fast-acting, and in some cases life-threatening allergic response characterized by facial swelling, nausea, breathing problems, and shock.
  • Bacterial Infections – The wounds caused by picking or scratching at itchy bed bug bites can easily become infected. Skin infections associated with bed bug infestations include lymphangitis, ecthyma, and impetigo.
  • Mental Health Risks – Living with a bed bug infestation is an intensely stressful experience that can damage the victim’s mental health. Victims of bed bug infestations frequently report depression, anxiety, insomnia, and related issues.
