A Hungry Bat Bug Will Settle For A Human Meal That’s Close By
Bat bugs and bed bugs are in the same insect family classification and look extremely similar. In fact, in many cases, the only way to tell the two apart is through microscopic examination. Bat bugs and bed bugs are often mistaken for one another but differ in their behavior. Bat bugs primarily live near bat colonies, hiding in small gaps, cracks, and crevices. If the host bat colony is excluded or dies out, bat bugs are known to move closer to humans and take up residence in the typical bed bug areas like dresser drawers, linen closets, and mattresses. Bat bugs will feed on humans when a bat colony is removed, but there is little effect on humans beyond the level of annoyance.
Bat bugs are moderately common in the midwest US and are found in houses and buildings that harbor bats. Infestations in human dwellings are usually introduced by bats carrying the bugs on their skin.
