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 in my bed?"

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

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.
