What's That Bug? does not endorse extermination

Subject: Blood-sucking roaches?

A friend’s apt is infested with the bugs shown in photo. They attach themselves to get his blood while he sleeps. Boric acid has diminished their number but does not eliminate them. Bug repellent does not keep them at bay. When he sits at his computer, he observes them gradually, all around, creeping toward him to feed. Adults are ~1/8″, mid photo is a young one. He first thought they were roaches, but now he’s not sure. This is in Nashville, TN. Any suggestions?

    It’s definitely bed bugs. Ick!

    Borax works best when mixed with water and sugar for edible bait against ants and roaches, but against bed bugs you need a slightly different approach. Whatever you do, you’ll need to do something because they may be hiding in a neighboring apartment!
