Bed bugs are oval, chestnut-brown insects and are flattened from top to bottom. Adult bed bugs measure about ¼ inch in length. Bed bugs grow by molting several times. Baby bed bugs, nymphs, look very much like the adults, except they are smaller. There are five molts, and each bed bug phase must have a blood meal to be able to molt to the next stage. Adults feed once a week on average but feed many times during their four-month lifespan.
Bed bugs often come into a home via secondhand articles and furniture. They may also migrate between homes via wires, plumbing, or rain gutters. In addition, since warehouses, trucks, and railroad cars may be infested, common bed bugs can infest homes by stowing away on new furniture stored or shipped from these places.
