Basic Description of Bedbug

Before feeding, bedbugs have an oval shape, are very little, and are brownish in colour. It is a parasite bug that only consumes the blood of people or other animals while they are dozing off or taking a break. The bugs turn a vivid crimson colour shortly after eating. When bedbugs age, their lighter coloration changes to brown. Bed bugs are often fairly tough. At night, it primarily comes to life. Despite the fact that they usually consume blood every five to ten days as they develop from one stage to another. They have the capacity to go for several months without food.
