Bed bugs (Cimex lectularius) are small, reddish-brown insects that feed on human blood. They're about the size of an apple seed and they are experts at hiding in hard-to-reach places. Bed bugs prefer to dwell in close proximity to humans, which is why they're often found in mattresses, bedding, headboards, and especially around linens.
An infestation can start in various ways, but it typically involves bed bugs hitchhiking their way into your home. Here are the most common entry points:
Bed bugs are notorious travelers, often hitching rides on luggage, clothing, or personal items during trips. Staying in infested hotels or hostels can also increase the risk of bringing bed bugs home.
Purchasing used furniture or accepting hand-me-downs can introduce bed bugs into your living space. Inspect items like pillows or throws carefully before purchasing and bringing them inside.
Bed bugs can move from one unit to another in multi-family dwellings, such as apartments or condos. If your neighbor has an infestation, it's possible for bed bugs to find their way into your home.
Bed bugs can be found on buses, trains, or other forms of public transportation. Be cautious with your belongings when commuting.

Bed bugs are indoor pests. They cannot survive for long periods of time outside. However, they can be transported outside on clothing, luggage, or furniture.
Bed bugs are not known to transmit any blood borne illnesses. However, there is some evidence that they may be able to transmit Chagas disease, a parasitic infection that is found in Latin America.
Bed bugs can go for long periods of time without food. Adults can survive for up to 20-400 days without feeding, while nymphs can typically survive for up to 10 months and freshly born bed bugs may last up to 3 weeks~.
Bedbug bites are often small, red bumps that appear in clusters. They may be itchy and can sometimes develop into blisters. The bites may also appear as bruises or welts.
