Bed Bug (Cimex lectularius)

Regular price $28.00 Sale

I'm not too convinced by how special this fact is since, considering their size, I wouldn't expect it to feel like much anyway but apparently bed bug spit contains anaesthetics to numb the pain. Even more deviously, their spit contains proteins which dilate blood vessels around the bite and anticoagulants which prevents the blood from clotting. This means they can really take their time slugging down all your free flowing blood as you snooze. Tasty.
