Is a hemiptera insect of the family Cimicidae. Their diet is hematophagous, that is, it is nourished with blood of humans and other warm-blooded animals. If you do not identify a bed bug infestation correctly, that gives them more time to spread to other areas of the house or to move to the house of someone else to start a new infestation, Bed bug bites may look like other insect bites (for example, mosquitoes or chiggers), rashes (for example, eczema or fungal infections) and even hives. Some people do not react at all to bed bug bites.
