Why Do They Bite? Bed bugs are blood feeders that depend on blood for their food source, so they must consume blood for survival. One bed bug will usually take more than one bite. Once a bed bug inserts its mouthparts and finds a suitable blood vessel, it will begin feeding.
Bedbugs (or bed bugs) are small, oval, brownish insects that live on the blood of animals or humans. They often enter your home undetected in luggage, clothing, and used beds or couches.
The bed bug bite looks like the bites of other insects such as scabies, lice, mosquitoes and fleas. For this reason, a Doctor will not know if a bite is caused by a bed bug just from the appearance.
