Identifying bed bugs
What do bed bugs look like?
The appearance of bed bugs varies according to their stage. Adult bed bugs are flat, oval-shaped, dark brown and 5-8mm big, while nymphs are lighter colored and 2-5mm big. Bed bug eggs are translucent and about 1mm big. However, young bed bugs and their eggs are almost impossible to find with your eyes, since for most of the daytime they hide in dark places like the cracks of headboards or floor corners. That’s why instead of spotting the bed bugs it’s more probable to find only signs of them.
