Bed bugs are nocturnal small crawling insects that feed on blood and are attracted to you by body warmth and the carbon dioxide exhaling out of your lungs. Measuring a mere 4-7mm in length, bed bugs are flat and oval, they’re also quick and agile, and can easily manoeuvre themselves into hard-to-reach places.
