What do bed bug look like? Mature bed bugs are flat and oval in shape, and about 5 to 6mm or ¼ inch in length. They are brown in color until they feed, they then will triple their size and turn a reddish brown. After they feed you might confuse them for another type of insect because they look nothing like they normally do.

Newly hatched nymphs (baby bed bugs) are beige in colored, and will turn reddish colored after their first blood feeding. Bed bug eggs are long and cylindrical in form, clear and almost transparent in color, they are also fairly tiny so you have to look closely to see them, it might help to use a magnify glass to aid in your search.
