Caption

Bed bug (Cimex lectularius) feeding on a human. Bed bugs feed by injecting a sharp mouthpart called a stylet into the skin. The bed bug's saliva includes an anaesthetic which numbs the pain of its bite. Bed bugs have been notorious pests throughout history and are making a comeback in many cities throughout the world. They can survive for several months without food. This specimen measures 6 millimetres in length.
