Human beings most likely acquired bed bugs during our shared troglodytic ancestry. This can be extrapolated due to the fact that all three of the known species of bedbugs (Cimex hemipterus, Leptocimex bouti , and Cimex lectularius) that parasitize human beings will also feed on bats (C. lectularuis readily attacks rodents and other domestic animals). Bedbugs are dorsoventrally flattened, reddish brown bugs that can grow to a length of 8 mm. They stay on their hosts no longer 5 to 10 minutes during feeding.Bed bugs feeds exclusively on blood and they prefer human hosts due to our “cavelike” habitats (i.e. our homes). Bed bugs are known to have devastating effects on the victims psyche as illustrated in the many websites dedicated to bed bugs.
