About Cimex lectularius
Cimex lectularius, the common bedbug, is a parasitic insect feeding preferentially on human blood. Cimex is cosmopolitan, found throughout the world in association with human populations. Cimex is not thought to be a vector although recent studies have shown that it can transmit Trypanosoma cruzi, the pathogen for Chagas disease in mice.
