Bed bugs mating. Coloured scanning electron micrograph (SEM) of a pair of bed bugs mating. Bed bugs (Cimex lectularius) are blood sucking insects, so called because they live in the beds of humans. Mating in bed bugs (and related families) is unique amongst the insects. The male (above) does not introduce his sperm into the female's vaginal opening. Instead he punctures the body wall of one of the female's abdominal segments and deposits his sperm in a sac. This is called traumatic insemination. Two to four gener- ations can be bred yearly, so that under suitable conditions infestation of a house can occur rapidly. Magnification x10 at 5x7cm size. Magnification: x22 at 6x4.5 inch size

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
