Bed Bugs Pictorial # 1

Baby Bed Bug ?

A baby Bed Bug at lower part of a box spring In the image above we present a baby bed bug. It is quite small. Easily about 1/8 the size of an adult bed bug. In fact it is so small that you have to put strain on your eyesight to be sure that you knows which side has the head! An experienced eye know where to look; beyond what to look for. Baby bed bugs are called nymphs and they feed just like the adults do — on human blood.

Upper edge of Box Spring

This excrement has burst into the fibers of the fabric of the box spring. These black markings are the tell tale sign of Bed Bug presence. This Bed Bug infestation has progressed to the well established stage. If you situation was at it's infancy then you might just find one or two of these spots in your box spring.

Two Adult Bed Bugs

In this image, you see two adult bed bugs chilling in the depression caused by the stitches. A human hand that moves in an in-targetted fashion would not touch them in the depth of this depression.
