We think we can all agree that bed bugs are absolutely disgusting and nobody wants them. Bed bugs will make their presence known in a way that makes it impossible to ignore them, like when they feed on humans while they’re sleeping. This kind of pest uses a piece of their mouth, called a stylet, to pierce the skin of humans. It sounds disgusting, but they will use this stylet to saw through the tissue to find blood vessels. Bed bugs typically feed on a human for five minutes before returning to its hiding spot. While it’s feeding, it will inject its saliva into the human, which causes swelling and itching.
