Bed Bugs have six legs, are oval shaped with flat bodies and never have wings. Adult bed bugs are reddish brown in color. Adults are about the size of an apple seed.
Juvenile bed bugs start off as a light tan or straw color and get darker as they become adults.
Bed bugs are synanthropic meaning that they live with people. They do not come from outside or nature, but instead are brought in to homes or business on personal belongings, used furniture, or houseguests. Bed bugs can also travel through walls in multi-family dwellings.
