Bed Bug, motel in Mississippi (USA)

Bed Bug, sometimes written Bedbug
Cimex lectularius
Found in a motel in Mississippi.
Photo taken at 7:50pm on 8 Sept 2011.

Bed bug is less than a quarter inch in length..

Bed bugs are making a comeback in the USA. They are hard to eliminate if they get into a dwelling.

This was the first night of a two-week driving trip. I found this bed bug when I lay down in the bed early in the evening (I hadn’t retired for the night — I was just going to lie there for 30 minutes). I caught it in a plastic drinking cup and photographed it. I showed it to a motel maintenance person. He informed the motel owner via his cell phone. And I was given a different room. The next day I drove to another city and spent the night at another motel. The following morning I woke with many bites on my legs and feet. I assume that the bites took 24 hours to develop.

I think I took all the correct precautions to avoid transporting bed bugs to my car and to other motels.

The bug did not climb out of the plastic cup that I put it in. But when I tried to pour it from one cup to another it was able to cling tightly to the plastic. It might have been able to climb the plastic cup if it was really determined.

In the photo, the bug is in the bottom of the plastic cup (I cut the upper 3/4 of the cup off). The cup is on a wooden table.

Bed bugs feed on blood, usually from humans. They have difficulty climbing smooth surfaces.
They die at 122 degrees F.

This is the only bed bug I have ever seen.

Photo was taken with a Pentax K100d digital SLR, with 100mm Takumar macro lens and No.2 close-up lens (that screws-in like a filter) and a Sunpak Auto 322 flash.

Ugh. Here is a header from Tripadvisor that Bedbugger brought to my attention:

bedbugger.com/2009/02/26/note-to-tripadvisorcom-bed-bugs-…

If these bugs are biting you, since they are PLANT FEEDERS, I’d say you have reason to complain all right. Sheesh. Not all “bugs” are the same.

Looks like Striped Stink Bug (Graphosoma lineatum). Anyone want to confirm?

About 10 minutes after having fed hundreds of bed bugs through the 1/3 mm mesh cover of colony container which is inverted on my arm during feeding. Since many crawl over one another during feeding frenzy, they produce the characteristic bed bug odor similar to a mixture of cilantro and citronella. L.Sorkin

Something crawled into bed with me last night and gave me a souvenir.
This is the first time I have ever gotten a blister from a bug bite. It doesn’t itch that much. I just hope it doesn’t get bigger or scar.
Freaking Korean bugs…

Don’t let the bed bugs bite

Bed bugs will crawl along hairs and crawl down to skin surface to feed. Hours after bed bug feeding, red marks appear at site of each bite. Welts had preceded the red marks but first disappear. Red marks severity lessens with age and in a week are gone. Microscopic brownish areas remain but are very difficult to clearly see.

Bed Bug Bites

Bites from bed bug adult and nymphs. First, second instars of nymphs. Adult bed bug fed on top of left vertical-positioned vein. There was no appreciable size difference between adult and nymph bites. The initial swelling reaction subsides around 30 minutes after bites and feeding. Large red blotches on lower right at thumb base and along lower wrist are birth marks (port-wine stain or naevus flammeus), not bed-bug related.
