Bedbugs

Bedbugs are small but are very hard to eradicate.  They are only about 5-7 mms (similar to the size of an apple seed).  They are usually seen as a reddish color, which unfortunately is result of the insects feeding on blood.  They have very flat bodies, making it easy to slide into vey small spaces. 

Bedbugs live in groups, with the females being able to lay hundreds of eggs over a lifetime (which is about 10-12 months). 

Bedbugs don't spread disease, but their bites are itchy and uncomfortable. Scratching these bites can lead to secondary infection. If you're allergic to this bites, they can lead to horrible itching, blisters or hives.
