Identifying Bed Bugs
Bed bugs are reddish-brown, flat insects about the size of a tick. They can be seen with the human eye.
Before feeding, bed bugs have a wide, rectangular appearance. After feeding, adult bed bugs have a more elongate shape and redder color.
Look for bed bug egg cases.
Bed bugs, their excrement, nymphs, and eggs can also be found in cracks and crevices, such as mattress seams and bed skirts.
