Abstract--The common bed bug, Cimex lectularius L., is an obligate blood-feeding ectoparasite that readily feeds on humans, resulting in rashes, dermatitis, and psychological distress.
Bed bugs (Cimex lectularuis) are small, elusive insects that feed almost exclusively on human blood.
The little blood sucking creatures - Cimex lectularius - can lay 400-500 eggs in one year and a study showed two bugs can become 80 bugs within six weeks.
