The dirty world of insects

The Art of Seduction

Ah, the art of seduction, timeless tradition of courtship that males must master in order to get their pickle tickled. It is a tradition that varies from culture to culture and, more specifically, from creature to creature. Out of the wilds that brought you the tango dancing scorpions, we bring you a distinctive mating ritual that is sure to boggle the mind. Not just any mind…Your mind.

Who, you ask, is the culprit of engaging this unnerving ritual?

Within your home there exists another world, a small world of blood thirsty insects, and they live in your bed. The Cimex Lectularius, commonly known as bedbugs, are, as we speak, frolicking and cavorting in the folds and mounds of many a sleep station, ready and eager to suck on blood!

Sipping bedbug

Bartender, get me another one! Mmmm, good.

Yes, these are kinky little parasites that love to feed on humans. They usually come out at night and like to hang out in places that have a great selection of warm-blooded humans to feast on; such as hotels, motels, hostels, dormitories, apartment complexes, prisons… you get the picture. Interestingly enough, they can also be found in airplanes, ships, trains and buses (a disturbing thought for frequent travelers).  It’s like a never-ending buffet… of human blood.

But this is hardly the most interesting behaviour that these tiny creatures engage in. Within the world of this small, rarely thought about insect, rages a sexual war fraught with violence, obsession and deception. If you thought you had it tough we suggest you take a few minutes and check this out… 

Taking the concept of rough sex to another level.

Ladies and Gentlemen, welcome to the bedbugs’ disturbing game of Gotcha!

Enough said.

    So cool. Did you know that both the male and the female bedbugs have developed opposite sex genitalia to throw the alpha males off? Cool, stuff.
