This small, reddish-brown insect, the length (5 mm) just over the width (3 mm), has a flat shape, so that the top and bottom of the body are not widely spaced. Under his head is a small tube that allows it to suck up liquid . . The small body of dark brown color of the chip is flattened laterally so that it can easily move between the hairs of the animal.

The cat flea infests about fifty species of animals and humans, and it occurs more frequently than other fleas on pets . . Dust mites are tiny insects that live hidden in the hair carpets, plush furniture, draperies, mattresses, pillows and bedding. In contrast to spiders and ticks, mites are invisible to the naked eye, do not bite and do not spread disease. The average adult loses two pounds of dead skin per year, most of the time during sleep. Dust mites live in bedding and mattresses, and feed on these pieces of skin. They prefer warm and humid. Lice are insects gray or reddish brown, close relatives of head lice. They live in pubic hair or other parts of the brown body pillow and lay their eggs at the base of the hairs. Eggs hatch after eight to nine days on average, but this period can sometimes reach 17 days. Crabs can live up to 35 days and survive off the human brown body pillow for 24 to 48 hours. You can catch crabs by having intimate contact with an infected person, sleeping in the bed of an infected person, using towels or wearing his clothes. The masked hunter is a big bug (17 to 22 mm long) blackish or blackish brown. There are over 160 species of bugs belonging to the same family (Reduviidae) in North America. We recognize these predators to their elongated head and behind the eyes so close that it seems to form a neck. The mouthparts are transformed into the tube that sucks up the fluids of the prey. . . .
