no amount of light or soft toys can help keep the bed bugs away, like they do the monsters in the closet..
these bed bugs are horrible blood suckers and they are serious abt their job.
dont you think bed bugs look awefully monsterous… like some evil alien here to take over the
world bed. indeed they are parasites since they cant survive without your blood.
the females lay up to 5 eggs each time. they are usually translucent, but the matured ones actually look reddish brown, of course due to the volumes of blood they suck…

wow…. microscopes do magic…
as you heard in the video, just like leeches, they inject anti-coagulants to prevent the blood from clotting so that they can suck all the blood they need. once they detach after their meal, the anti-coagulants run out and the blood clots as per usual.
you know, bed bugs actually change their size depending on the time of the day (and as they mature, of course). the eggs are abt 1mm and the REALLY mature ones are abt 5mm. technically, you can see them. so you can get rid of them. but most of us dont bother since we dont have infestations of bed bugs… but do you know, infestations can be so bad that a person can get bitted 500 times per night! now, thats so much blood loss, you might as well have acute anemia for a few hrs!
but not to worry. infestations only happen when you get bedbug transfers from infected content. like pets with bedbugs or nearby places with bedbug infestations.. the pharaoh ant‘s venom is lethal to beg buds, so i guess if you think you do have an infestation, get some ants, leave them for a day or so, and then get rid of the ants…
but you know whats the most interesting thing i found abt bed bugs??
the females dont have any genital openings, so the males pierce through the females abdomen to inseminate the female… ouch! at times, the males even pierce other males abdomen!!! lol… welcome to the insect gay world!
