As soon as you discover bed bugs, extermination should be a top priority. These tiny parasitic insects belong to the Cimicidae family. They eat mainly human blood and other warm-blooded creatures. Cimex lectularius is the most common type of bed bug. Bed bugs can be invisible to the naked eye.
These insects eat blood and dry skin. They feed most often just before sunrise, but they will also feed at other times, if there is an opportunity. You can also check out here to get more information about the bed bugs and bed bug extermination process.

Two hollow tubes are inserted through the skin by the bugs to feed. They inject their saliva, which is a mixture of anesthetics and anticoagulants, through one tube and then withdraws the blood through another tube. Itchy, reddened, swollen spots on the skin are the first sign of bedbug infestation.
There are many ways to eliminate these pests. Chemicals are one option, but it is important to be careful if children or pets live nearby. First, remove all bedding and soft furnishings and place them into plastic bags then seal the bags. This will prevent the bugs from being spread to other rooms.
Once the room has been cleared of any insect residue, you can now use any one of several chemical insect killers. A professional exterminator is recommended if you are unsure about whether chemicals should be used or if there is a significant infestation.
