Bed bugs (Cimex lectularius).

Bed bugs are small, parasitic insects that feed on the blood of humans and animals. They are commonly found in areas where people sleep or rest, such as beds, sofas, and even on public transportation. These pests are notoriously difficult to get rid of, as they are resilient to many common insecticides and can hide in small cracks and crevices.

Infestations of bed bugs can cause a variety of problems for people, including skin rashes, allergy symptoms, and even psychological effects such as anxiety and insomnia. For this reason, it is important to address a bed bug infestation as soon as it is identified. This may involve extermination methods such as vacuuming, heat treatments, and targeted insecticides.

Preventing bed bug infestations can be challenging, as they are easily spread through human travel and can even be brought into a home through secondhand furniture or clothing. Regularly inspecting and cleaning bedding, furniture, and other resting areas can help to minimize the risk of a bed bug infestation. If an infestation does occur, it is best to seek the help of a professional pest control company to ensure that the problem is fully eradicated.
