Bed bugs get their name from living in seams of mattresses. Bed bugs are very small, roughly 5mm in length. They are a reddish-brown color and the red coloring comes from feeding only on blood. You can pick up bed bugs from almost anywhere making them a commonly treated pest. Some signs of possible bed bug infections are bites on the skin, their skin sheddings, and their small stains from their droppings. It is important to treat bed bugs because female bed bugs lay between one and five eggs per day and can live up to a year.
