As you can see in the pictures, nymphs look like smaller versions of adult bed bugs and have the same flat, seed-shaped bodies. There are five nymph stages to the bed bug life cycle. At each stage of this gradual metamorphosis, a bed bug requires one blood meal in order to grow, shed its exoskeleton, and mature into an adult bed bug.
By examining the bed bug pictures you will see that bed bugs are small insects with oval shaped bodies, six legs and two antennae. Their coloration will vary depending on their age as well as whether or not they have fed recently. View the bed bug pictures to get a better look at the shape, size and color variations.
If you have to see a bed bug, it's better to find dead bed bugs than ones that are still living. However, even seeing them at all can be enough to freak you out (and with good reason). It's only natural to wonder if there are other bed bugs still out there that you'll have to contend with.
Apparently, bed bugs are very real and they are visible and very ugly. Depending on the stage or size of the bed bug depends on how well you can see bed bugs. Check out the Bed Bug Pictures on the right. Bed bugs are small little things that feed off the blood of humans!
