What Do Baby Bed Bugs Look Like?

Bed bugs are a real issue, especially for people in hotels and apartment complexes. These pests can be a serious problem, but they’re not something you need to fear if you stay in your home. Luckily, bed bugs don’t usually hide in your bed and don’t bite unless directly exposed to your skin. They also don’t travel far; bed bugs are usually found in bedbug-infested sleeping areas, such as mattresses and box springs.

If you have bed bugs in your home, you likely have other bugs as well. It’s not uncommon for bed bugs to infest a home with roaches, fleas, earwigs, and other pests—especially if you have pets since they tend to carry them in on their fur. If you suspect your home is infested, you can treat the bed bugs first, but a general pest control company is best equipped to handle your infestation.

Ah, baby bed bugs. Our least pleasant pest management pest, at least as far as allergic reactions go. Just as with adult bed bugs, they feed at night and tend to crawl in at night, so they’re a nocturnal pest—but unlike adult bed bugs, baby bed bugs don’t bite people. Instead, they feed on human blood, which is how they got their name. Baby bed bugs are tiny, no more than a tenth of an inch long, and their bodies are flattened and oval.

Baby Bed Bugs Appearance

One of the most seriously annoying pests infesting homes is bed bugs. These tiny parasitic insects are not easy to get rid of, and they tend to multiply like rabbits, making getting rid of them even harder. These small, flat, reddish-brown insects feed on blood, and they are typically found near where people sleep or relax. Many factors go into how likely or how resistant a bed bug infestation is to treatment, including where the bed bugs are making their home, what time of year it is, and how many there are.

Baby Bed Bug Sizes

This pest is tiny and flat, reddish-brown and oval-shaped, and measures about .75 inches long and .5 inches wide. Look for them near your bed and your headboard. If you see them near your headboard, there may be eggs there. But, even if there aren’t any eggs, that doesn’t mean you can ignore the problem.

Bed bugs are parasitic insects that feed on blood, primarily at night. While bed bugs do not carry disease, they are a nuisance for their victims. Once bed bugs are discovered, they can be difficult to eliminate. Like other insects, bed bugs reproduce rapidly, so any effort to rid your home of them should be thorough. Knowing the size of the female bed bugs can help you understand how successful your efforts will be.

The Color of Baby Bed Bugs

Bed bugs are scary, especially since they will feed on your blood while you sleep. The good news is that there are things you can do to prevent and treat bed bugs, including getting rid of the bugs’ hiding places. Bed bugs hide in cracks, crevices, under mattresses, on furniture, and at the borders of carpeting. Before getting rid of bed bugs, you need to identify them and where they are hiding. Bed bugs come in different colors, ranging from dark brown to almost black. Colors can vary depending on the environment.

Do Bed Bug Nymphs Crawl?

The caterpillar undergoes one of the most bizarre and fascinating developmental stages: The chrysalis. The chrysalis is not a cocoon, though. Rather, a chrysalis is a cocoon-like structure that develops from a caterpillar as it transitions from caterpillar to chrysalis. It’s where the caterpillar completes its metamorphosis and ceases to live.

The nymph is a small worm-like creature that lives in the water. Unlike a worm, however, the nymph can crawl out of the liquid. The nymph is one of two types of aquatic nematodes, and it is also a parasite. Nymphs attach to their host, usually a fish, and then use the gills to transfer their eggs to the host’s gills. Once the eggs hatch, the nymphs move down into the host’s body, where they feed on its tissue and fluids.

It’s not every day that you get to see a bed bug. If you thought bed bugs were gross, you haven’t seen anything like baby bed bugs. These little guys look nothing like their adult counterparts — like, at all. They’re smaller than a grain of rice and look far more like larvae than insects. Their tiny bodies are covered in hair, and their eyes and antennae look just like tiny, black dots. So, what is it exactly that baby bed bugs look like?

Bed bugs are nocturnal parasitic insects, meaning that they tend to crawl around at night to feed on the blood of humans and other warm-blooded creatures. This makes them very hard to spot, as they are typically only active at night when they are flat and look similar to a small apple seed.


There are currently no definitive methods for detecting bed bugs. Therefore, no official procedures have been implemented to prevent bed bug infestations. However, tips include using clothing derived from multiple people, carefully washing bedding; vacuuming or beating bedding that seems to have bed bugs; and using bed bug-repelling fragrances.
