Bed Bugs: What Are They, and Are They Dangerous?
Cimex lectularius, commonly known as bed bugs, are parasitic insects that prefer to feed exclusively on human blood. They tend to congregate in warm, dry areas where they have easy access to a host. Beds, furniture, laundry, luggage, vehicles, and even appliances can be colonized by bed bugs and easily access human blood. Full-sized adults grow to a length of only 0.2 inches, making them difficult to detect and even harder to get rid of. Human victims may not notice bed bug bites right away, but it does not take long for the negative effects to manifest. Bites can result in skin rashes, allergic symptoms, and even psychological effects.
