Bed bug     Cimex lectularius

Identification:

Adult Bed bugs are oval shaped, flattened, reddish-brown in color, and are about 5 mm  long. After a blood meal their bodies will expand to become more round or swollen, and they will appear more dark red. They have a beak like mouth sucking parts and small stubby, non-functional wing pads. The nymphs (juveniles) resemble adults just smaller and a lighter color. The eggs are white and 1 mm long.

Biology:

Female Bed bugs lay 1 to 12 per day, the eggs are deposited on rough surfaces, cracks, or crevices adhered with a sticky substance to help them stay in place. The eggs will hatch within 6 to 17 days, and when the eggs hatch the nymphs emerge and can immediately begin to feed.
Before they molt for the first time they must have a blood meal, once they do this they begin to molt after every blood meal until they reach full maturity, which is usually 5 molts. The time it takes from nymph to full adult depends on temperature, 21 days at 30°C and 120 days at 18 °C .  

Habits:

Bed bugs are nocturnal and blood-feeders. They prefer humans but also feed on other warm-blooded animals such as, rats, birds, bats, and homeowners pets. During the day they hide in clothes or cloth material, such as bed linens or pillows, box springs and their coverings, floor boards, book cases, night stands.   When they are done feeding they will go back to their hiding place to digest their meal, when they are hungry again they will search for another host, if not the same one.

 Bed bugs have made a resurgence in the United States and Canada in the last decade.  

Bed bugs, are by far, the biggest challenge to the pest control industry today. With the changing practices of pest control management and the ban of many effective pesticides (thanks to our government regulations), bedbugs are becoming a more common, difficult and costly problem to treat.
Effective elimination can be achieved most effectively with early detection. The longer they have been present within the structure the reproducing adult females will disperse and become harder to find while depositing eggs in their hiding places.
