Do bed bugs have wings?

The answer is yes and no. While bed bugs grow vestigial wings during their adult stage, the wings look like very short pads on the top of the thorax, which are useless organs if they need one to fly. Several bugs’ vestigial wings have a much lighter in color than the rest of the body, but a common bed bug’s have the same reddish brown color as the rest of its body.

Q: I have bed bugs and I also have a dog and a cat. What is the best treatment to use with my pets

A: Thankfully, bed bugs are not very likely to be on your dogs or cats because they have difficulty traveling through hair and fur. Since there are also no bed bug pesticides that you can spray directly on your pets, your best defense is basically to treat around your pets. Use a relatively low-toxic like Sterifab for the underside of their beds and treat the rooms your pets are often in. You can try looking around for a pet-safe pesticide, but we personally are not aware of any. Good luck!
