Bed Bug On White Cloth: Pictures of Bed Bugs

Bed bugs commonly hide in mattresses, carpets, behind peeling paint or wallpaper, and in crevices in wooden furniture (like a bed's headboard or the picture frame above it). The bugs are nocturnal and typically bite people while they sleep, usually just before dawn. They can survive up to one year without feeding, making them very difficult to eradicate.
