What do bed bugs look like?

Adult bed bugs are small, oval-shaped insects that measure approximately 5-7mm in length, roughly the size of an apple seed. Before feeding, they have flat, brownish bodies. However, after a blood meal, their bodies swell and turn a reddish hue. Contrary to popular belief, bed bugs are not black in colour. Young bed bugs, or nymphs, are smaller and lighter in colour, making them even harder to spot. Bed bug eggs are minuscule, white, and almost impossible to see with the naked eye.

Can bed bugs jump or fly?

Despite their ability to move swiftly over various surfaces like floors, walls, and ceilings, bed bugs cannot fly or jump. Unlike fleas, bed bugs’ legs are not designed for jumping. Instead, they crawl to navigate their surroundings and tend to hide near areas where people sleep or rest, such as beds, couches, and chairs.
