A reddish-brown color oval shaped small insect is known as Bed Bugs. They are very dangerous. Their scientific name is Cimex lectularius, a Latin term, which means the bug and bed. They are small wingless insects, which can grow up to half an inch long. This oval shaped small insect feed by the blood of all warm blooded animals. It can be said that we humans are the best host for them. The bedbug is usually seen in all types of dwelling, starting from small private houses to big hotels.
