Swallow bugs

Identification

Size: Swallow bugs are typically about 4 – 5mm or 1/8 inch in length, smaller than common bed bugs.
Color: Swallow bugs are a brownish-gray color.
Description: Swallow bugs are found throughout North America, and they feed on the blood of birds, such as swallows and house martins. They can also bite humans if bird populations are low. Swallow bugs are similar in appearance to common bed bugs, but they have a more pointed head and longer antennae. Swallow bugs are most active at night and hide in cracks and crevices during the day.
