Why the hell would you sleep on the floor? If your bed has 100 million ass bugs then the floor has 100 billion...

your pillow gets much haver after you've had it a few days then when you first got it, thats all from your body. Your bed is also heavier when you wake up-in the morning than it is in the evening.

Yeah, like Jestorebo said. These little insects are everywhere. Mites and other little critters live in beds, furnature, clothing, even your vacume cleaner. They usually eat hair and dead skin cells along with other things. Usually they're not really "bad" for you... it's more so when they're in over abundandce when they can start to make you sick. I think the feces is honestly what does it and not the insect themselves.

Actual "bed bugs" are nasty little critters though and can give you some painful bites.
You can find a pic of one here:

yuuppp..

Bedbugs (or bed bugs) are small nocturnal insects of the family Cimicidae that live by hematophagy, that is by feeding on the blood of humans and other warm-blooded hosts.

and heres some lovely pictures of what they look like..


here's some more information on the little tights.

Bedbug 4 mm length 2.5 mm width (Shown in a film roll plastic container. On the right is the sloughed off skin, which this bedbug just recently wore during its nymph form)



Disease transmission

While bedbugs have been known to harbor pathogens in their bodies, including the Plague. Bedbugs may be a vector for hepatitis B and, in endemic areas, for American trypanosomiasis (Chagas disease). Anaphylactoid reactions are well described. [1]

Some individuals get skin infections and scars from scratching bites.



Young

Female bedbugs can lay up to five eggs in a day and 500 during a lifetime. The eggs are visible to the naked eye measuring 1 mm in length (approx. two grains of salt) and are a milky-white tone. The eggs hatch in one to two weeks. The hatchlings begin feeding immediately. They pass through five molting stages before they reach maturity. They must feed once during each of these stages.

At room temperature, it takes about five weeks for a bedbug to pass from hatching, through the stages, to maturity. They become reproductively active only at maturity.


all info taken from wikipedia because i was too lazy to search it up myself >.>

I went camping before and I slept in a cabin. By the time I got back, I had some many bug bites on me. It was so itchy there.
