Since the early 2000s, bed bug infestations have been increasing in countries like the United States, Canada, and the United Kingdom. The bed bug bites themselves are not harmful, but they can be annoying and itchy. But, imagine if the bed bugs were the same size as we are. That would be a scene straight out of a horror movie. Would they still be able to hide away? Imagine your bedroom infested with these tiny bugs. But, what if they were the same size as us? How much blood would a giant bed bug drink? How fast could they take over the world? And could bright colors save you from an attack?
