Bed bugs are flat little insects that can delve their way into all kinds of tiny cracks and crevices. Cracks and crevices in walls, door frames, window seals, furniture, or luggage.

They are reddish-brown in color, wingless, and range anywhere from 1 mm to 7 mm in length. All these features give them the ability to remain hidden in plain sight. This is just one of the many things that make elimination so much more difficult as compared to other insects. Luckily, steam treatment can help.
