They are very tiny black bugs and yes, they bite. They live in the mattress and bedding and are horribly hard to get rid of. If you have them, call an exterminator immediately.

Yes they bite, and in some people cause quite an allergic reaction. News lately says they are on increase in big city hotels. yuk! (that’s why Oprah brings her own sheets).

Don’t look at the picture if you freak. Also you can google bedbug and view photos.

Very small insects, once thought eradicated. These bugs take up residence in the dark crevices of mattresses and other bedding, and feed on human blood (so yes, they bite).

They can live for months without food – so are very hardy.

Bedbugs have proven to be difficult to exterminate, and are likely travelers in luggage.

bed bugs are bugs thata live in your mattress, and they come by some one that don’t keep their body clean. Yes they bite, it’s you that they eat for food. they look like beetles with very hard backs.
