A Bedbug's Bite - Up Close! - Bang Goes the Theory - BBC

Fun Fact:  "All bed bugs mate by traumatic insemination. Female bed bugs possess a reproductive tract that functions during oviposition, but the male does not use this tract for sperm insemination. Instead, the male pierces the female's abdomen with his hypodermic penis and ejaculates into the body cavity."

Managing a hotel I know all about bed bugs.  We typically get about 4 to 5 cases of bed bugs per year and I run a high end hotel near the university of Notre Dame so we get travelers from all over...and so many of them are carrying these little pricks with them.  Typically we discover that a room has bed bugs by a guest complaining about it a day or two later and then we pay a company to come and essentially fog-bomb the room, which can put the room out of service for anywhere from 4-5 days.
