"Bedbugs" (bed bugs) also known as Cimex Lectularius Linnaeus, are tiny, flat, wingless, insects that feed on warm-blooded mammals and, in the majority, humans. They can range in color, ranging from almost white after molting, to dark brown or tan.
After eating, they change to large and bright red and look like the appearance of a different insect. The skin lesions caused by the bite of a bedbug are similar to that of an insect bite, and therefore bites by themselves cannot determine the cause. Bedbugs aren't known to transmit or carry diseases to their hosts.

At night Bedbugs can be found in crevices or cracks close to bed frames or areas in which people sleep. The majority of bedbugs are found in mattresses and foundations/box springs or within fifteen feet of the bed.
When they come out at night, they return to their hiding places to eat but if they're hungry enough, they may wander out during the day in search of an appropriate host. They can go on for longer than a year with no food and are able to survive in rarely used hotel rooms or apartments until their next victim is found.
Furniture that is used regularly has the highest danger of being infested with bed bugs or eggs. Bedbugs may also move between the apartments that are adjacent to each other.
To avoid future infestations make sure you caulk and seal any holes in which wires and pipes traverse floors and walls. Also, fill in gaps around cove moldings and baseboards.
To stop bed bugs from getting into a bed, remove the bed frame of the walls.
