What exactly are bedbugs anyway?

Bedbugs are bloodsucking hemipteran insects which simply means they are “true bugs” that are classified by their sucking beak-like mouth parts. Bedbugs are from the Cimicidae family. Common bedbugs or “Cimex lectularius” are the ones most likely to invade human households because they are the most adapted to human surroundings. Bedbugs are also known as kissing bugs, bloodsuckers, cone noses, and simply bugs.
