odd moving bug

Asked July 28, 2016, 7:08 PM EDT

Are bed bugs tiny brownish red color and individually move in tight circles like their looking for something and dont want to miss it? Or like a dog chasing its tail but slower.

Bed bugs range in size from the size of a pin head to the size of an appleseed. They are reddish brown, flattened and oval shaped. For a poster showing bed bugs and their signs, see http://citybugs.tamu.edu/ent-3015/

Bed bugs do run, but not normally in circles.
