pictures of bed bugs


This post is just to show some pictures of bed bugs and bed bug eggs. Eggs are often missed to the untrained eye but they are the first thing I look for. They are 1mm in size and a bed bug can lay over 300 of them in the right conditions and they spread them in all manner of places too.

There are many more pictures of bed bugs and videos of them on our FB page - EPB Control 

Pictures Of Bed Bugs

Here is a video I did a few months ago of bed bugs on the underside of an electric reclining chair. The poor ladies legs were badly bitten but because of poor circulation in her legs and health she wasn't aware of how bad the bed bug infestation was.

The following images you can see a near adult sized bed bug and an adult that was laying eggs in front of me! 

The above video you can see hundreds of bed bugs and eggs on the end of the wooden slats that run the width of a bed under the mattress. This is a common area to find bed bugs. Lift your mattress and look around the black clips on the end of the wooden slats for signs of excrement, which is black.  

Dealing With Bed Bugs

If you are looking for pictures of bed bugs because you are worried you have them and then do find them then I advise that you contact a professional pest control company for bed bug control in London or wherever you may be. Whether that is us or someone else. Bed bugs are a pest that needs to be dealt with by experienced pest control technicians as the risk of spreading them is high. Take a read of our room preparation post if you are about to have a bed bug treatment and want to prepare correctly 

I hope this post of pictures of bed bugs helped you. Feel free to get in touch if we can help any further

What do bed bugs look like

What Do Bedbugs Look Like

Welcome to Bed Bugs London advice blog and this post about understanding what bed bugs look like.

Often people ask us, "can you see bedbugs?" "Are bedbugs to small to see?" "Why can't I find the bedbugs?"

Bed bugs are masters at hiding themselves away and also getting into places that people do not realise they can get into.

Bedbugs will mostly be found in cracks, crevices and folds. Between wood joins. Skirting boards. The top of curtains and any place they can squeeze themselves into so they are not exposed and out in the open.

Here are some pictures of some bed bugs and some bed bug eggs. As you can see adult bed bugs are fairly large. They are also very quick at moving!

Bed bugs after they have had a blood meal are reddish brownish. Bed bug eggs are white in colour and very small. They are not always laid in a clump and can be spread far and wide. Bed bug excrement is black 

Hopefully this helps you understand what bed bugs look like a little better. If you need help in preparing your room for a bed bug treatment read room preparation 

If you are looking for them in your room then check the following areas:

  •  Wooden slats under mattress. 
  • Around joins of wood on bed frame. Screw holes
  • Lift bed frame and check underneath 
  • Tops of curtains if curtains overhang the bed. 
  • Back of the bedside unit.
  • Around plug sockets near bed.
  • Along the skirting board near bed.
