Caption: Bed bugs, dorsal and ventral surfaces. Bed bugs are wingless, parasitic insects of the family Cimcidae. The most common species, C. lectularius, prefers to feed on the blood of humans. It was all but eradicated during the 1940s but is now undergoing a rapid resurgence, possibly due to the banning of DDT. Although disgusting, bed bugs are not known to transmit any human disease.
