Bed Bugs are mahogany to rusty brown in color. They are flat, broad oval, having six legs and ¼ inches long. Bedbugs get their name because they like to live and feed in and around their hosts sleeping area, beds.
Bedbugs like to travel and will hide in suitcases, boxes and shoes to be near a food supply. They are elusive, nocturnal creatures. They can hide behind baseboards, electrical switchplates, picture frames, even wall paper. They come out at night for a blood meal.
Where they live
