SEM of a bed bug Featured 19 Nov 2002 Print

SEM of a bed bug

Bed bug. Coloured scanning electron micrograph (SEM) of a bed bug, Cimex lectularius on a woven fabric. The head has a pair of compound eyes with small facets, two antennae, and piercing mouthparts. It has a broad, flat, body devoid of wings and six walking legs. A regular diet of blood is necessary for bed bugs to reach maturity. A parasite of humans, this species feeds at night and after a blood meal the body becomes quite swollen. The bite of a bed bug produces swellings on the skin. It is painful and may be lasting in some cases. During the day the bed bug lives in mattresses, floors, or in tears in furniture. Magnification: x10 at 5x7cm size. x23 at 6x4ins
