So how can you quickly recognize a bed bug in your home? They are visible to the naked eye, oval in shape and approximately the size of an apple seed. However, since it is a generally a nocturnal insect, bedbugs shy away from light and rarely appear during the day. Adult bed bugs are usually brown. When they are engorged with blood, their colour ranges from red to dark brown. They do not jump or fly and move at roughly the same speed of an ant.

Bed bugs have a lifespan of five to six months. However, if they are in an uninhabited house and lack food, they can go into a state of dormancy, a form of hibernation, which allows them to live for more than a year, or even two, without ever feeding. This is a characteristic that makes this insect an extremely difficult pest to eradicate, which requires treatment by a professional bed bug extermination specialist.
