The average size of an adult varies from 4 to 5 millimeters. They are not able to fly due to lack of wings and the body seems to be flattened. Most commonly bedbugs reside under the mattress and the corners or bed folds. As per their nature they feed themselves during night and inject some bad chemical in human blood that eventually causes a lot of irritation and pain leaving behind the skin rashes. When they bite, it is difficult to judge, but the results are visible after a few minutes. They dwell mostly in 70 to 90 degrees Fahrenheit and try to be at the most favorable warm temperatures.
