- They have a smelly musty-sweetish odor that is produced through glands on the lower side of the body
Young bed bugs sometimes called nymphs typically are:
- Smaller, whitish yellow in color or sometimes translucent
- If they have not fed recently they can be very hard to see
Bed bugs over all are:
