What does a bed bug look like?
Bed bugs range from 1mm to 7mm long (less than 1/4 of an inch - roughly the size of Lincoln’s head on a penny), are wingless, and have a flat head and a flat, oval body. Young bed bugs are yellow-white in color and change to a light to reddish brown as they mature. For more information and pictures you can visit: Colorado State University Extension website. You can also contact an entomologist for help identifying bed bugs.
