It’s September and most people have come home after a summer vacation, however did you bring some bed bugs home with you?
The common bed bug aka Cimex Lectularius is a small bug only approximately 3/16 of an inch long and 1/8 of an inch wide and has an oval shape. The bug is flat and the color is brown to reddish brown with a 3-segmented beak and 4-segmented antennae and vestigial wings. They emit a distinctive” musty sweetish” odor that usually comes from undigested parts of their last blood meal.
Earwigs – we don’t hear that much about them however they do exist and live in the Las Vegas Valley. Did you know that there are three common species of earwigs – the European earwig, ring-legged earwig and the seaside earwig – we in Las Vegas need not worry about the seaside earwig since we are not near an ocean.
