Bedbugs 1 *
This bedbug, Cimex lectularius, was photographed in 1972 during a study of disease carrying pests in migrant labor camps.
Though this insect has not been incriminated in the transmission of any communicable diseases, some people are very sensitive to the bites of this bedbug species, Cimex lectularius, while others are hardly aware of their presence.
