When bed bugs bite, they inject an anesthetic and an anticoagulant that prevents a person from feeling the bite, once a bed bug finishes feeding, it returns to that harborage areas usually filled with a cluster of adults, nymphs and eggs. These places vary greatly in format, including vehicles, furniture, luggage and bedside clutter.
