This bed bug pictures actual size post will be the place where I share my findings on bedbugs. In short, there’s a lot to know and it’s often very different from area to area there are no hard and fast rules of what works and what doesn’t. There are several topical areas where bed bugs will hide out that you need knowledge in order to determine if you have bed bugs and how to identify them. The bites these guys leave behind are pretty nasty as well and probably one of the best ways to confirm your infestation. So if you want a DIY method for identifying if you got bed bugs this is probably a fairly good idea (sometimes calling an exterminator is not always in the budget). Think bed bugs are “no big deal”? You might want to reconsider, they’re not harmless and they’re growing in number. If you have bed bugs and don’t know what they look like there’s a good chance you haven’t taken a close-up picture of one yet. There’s a good reason why most people haven’t either, it’s really disgusting! So we sent our photographers out to snap pictures of some live ones for this post. Here’s what two actual size pictures of bed bugs look like.
Bed Bug Pictures Actual Size
Bed bug nymphs and adults have visible segmented abdomens with microscopic hairs that give them a banded appearance. A common misconception is that they are not visible to the naked eye. Adults grow to 4–5 mm in length and 1.5–3 mm wide. Newly hatched nymphs are translucent, lighter in color, and become browner as they moult and reach maturity.

Bed bugs range in color from almost white to brown, but they turn rusty red after feeding. You may also notice tiny dark stains on bed sheets or mattresses when bed bugs are crushed. Because bed bugs feed on blood, they leave behind blood stains resembling small rust spots.
If you find no evidence of bed bugs, but still suspect that you have them, it’s important to know what they look like so that you can properly identify them. Here are some facts about the appearance and behavior of bedbugs:
- Bed bugs are a flat oval-shaped insect with six legs and antennae. They range in color from almost white to brown and turn rusty red after feeding on blood. You may also notice tiny dark stains on sheets or mattresses when crushed, which is caused by crushed bed bugs leaving behind blood stains resembling small rust spots.
- Adult female bedbugs lay fewer than 200 eggs at a time (compared to thousands produced by many other insects). Eggs hatch into nymphs within five days of being laid; each nymph molts six times before maturing into an adult with wings (males) or without wings (females).
When did you last see bugs this big in your bedroom? Don’t be fooled by marketing images which have been grossly enlarged to show detail. In reality, nymphs and adult bed bugs are about the size of an apple seed and can easily hide in the seams of mattresses.
We’ve all seen pictures of bed bugs, but these images are often enlarged to show detail. The reality is that nymphs and adult bed bugs are about the size of an apple seed and can easily hide in the seams of mattresses, or behind baseboards or picture frames.
Bed bugs are parasitic insects that feed on human blood. They prefer to live within 100 feet (30 metres) of their hosts while they feed at night, but they can travel much farther if necessary. Bed bug infestations spread rapidly and can be difficult to control without professional help.
Bedbug nymphs and adults have visible segmented abdomens with microscopic hairs that give them a banded appearance. A common misconception is that they are not visible to the naked eye. Adults grow to 4–5 mm (0.16–0.20 in) long and 1.5–3 mm (0.059–0.118 in) wide while newly hatched nymphs are translucent, lighter in color, and become browner as they moult and reach maturity.
A common misconception is that bedbugs are not visible to the naked eye. In fact, adult bedbugs grow to 4–5 mm (0.16–0.20 in) long and 1.5–3 mm (0.059–0.118 in) wide while newly hatched nymphs are translucent, lighter in color, and become browner as they moult and reach maturity. The body of an adult is divided into three regions: head, abdomen and thorax.
Adult bedbugs have a flattened body with six legs; they have microscopic hairs on their bodies which give them a banded appearance when viewed under a microscope. Bedbugs also have pigmented blood, which contains iron-containing porphyrins that make it possible for the blood to be detected with black light or blue lighting. The antennae are short and bristle-like with four segments; males have more antennae than females; females’ antennae tend to be thicker than males’. A common misconception is that bedbugs bite through clothing but this is false since they feed through skin contact via perforations made by their stylets.
