A Giant Bed Bug found in Mexico city!

A Senior Entomologist Eduardo Gutierrez,  at La Salle, says they have never seen any bedbug like it. He also says, “It’s either a rare genetic mutation, or an entirely new species of bed bug, or the common bed bug is evolving into something rather sinister.” This was discovered by a  housekeeper at an upper scale hotel in Mexico city. For security purpose, the name should not be disclosed.

She says that while changing the bed sheet she saw a big hole in the middle of the mattress. She was looking closer and suddenly the giant bedbug came out. She thought it a cockroach, but while coming to closer, she realized that it’s an unusual bedbug. They catch it and bring it to the hotel manager. And finally, it came to the attention of Eduardo and his peers.

The hotel manager, Carlos Parada, said it is very odd that our guests stayed in room 2 nights without making any complaint of being bitten by bedbugs. He also said the hotel would be thoroughly checked to make sure no more bedbugs exists.

Eduardo told: After one feeding bedbugs move to their secured places and hide for 5 to 10 days and digest their meal, mate and lay eggs. The guest suffered no bites because during this time they don’t feed as it was between feeding.

Since prior that no guests experienced unusual anything, this bedbug came from the suitcase of the last guest who traveled from North America. So, it is assumed that giant bedbugs are breeding in North America and it’s possible, says Eduardo.

The average adult bedbugs grow to about 1/4 of an inch. The giant bedbug is more than 3 inches long. Now it becomes an entomologist’s dream to discover a new species of bedbugs!
