The term most commonly refers to members of the genus Cimex of which Cimex lectularius, the common bed bug, is the best known as it prefers to feed on human blood although other Cimex species are specialized to other animals, e.g., bat bugs, C. pipistrelli (Europe), C. pilosellus (western US), and C. adjunctus (entire eastern US).[2]

The name of the "bed bug" is derived from the preferred habitat of Cimex lectularius: warm houses and especially nearby or inside of beds and bedding or other sleep areas.

Bed bugs have been known as human parasites for thousands of years.[6] At a point in the early 1940s, they were mostly eradicated in the developed world, but have recently increased in prevalence since 1995.[7][8] Because infestation of human habitats has been on the increase, bed bug bites and related conditions
