The Anatomy of a Bed Bug War Currently, all NAACLS accredited pathologists' assistant programs are located on the east coast. Unfortunately, the east coast is also the home to a growing tide of crawling, blood-sucking, satan-spawn known as bed bugs ( Cimex lectularius ).
External Anatomy: Bed bugs have three body segments: Head, thorax, and abdomen. Two antennae. Two eyes. Six legs. Reddish brown in color. Bright red after being engorged from a blood meal.
The anatomy of a bed bug consists of an oval shaped body, a small broadly attached head, and compound eyes. Bed bugs are about the size of an apple seed (4-5 mm in length). They have segmented abdomens with tiny, colored hairs that give them a striped appearance. Their antennae are shorter than their legs and have four segments.
