  • (Below) Size Reference: I Used To Think That Bed Bugs Were Invisible To The Naked Eye Before I Began My Pest Control Career. While Eggs and Juvenile Bed Bugs Are Quite Small And Difficult To See, They Are Still Visible. The Images Below Show An Adult On A Standard Nail On A Standard Box-spring (L) And Several Life Stages In A Standard Small Styrofoam Coffee Cup (R).
  • (Right) What To Look For: Evidence Of Bed Bug Activity Is Often Identified During a Thorough Inspection By Looking For Dark Specks or Smears. These Smears Are Referred To As 'Fecal Smears' and Implies As Such. Bed Bugs Feed On Blood, Therefore They Excrete Dark Blood Smears Near Nesting Sites.
