Did you know that bat bugs, yes BAT bugs, will feed on humans if their normal food supply (i.e. the bat) is no longer available. Bat bugs, bed bugs and swallow bugs are very opportunistic and will feed on whatever is available. And because they all belong to the genus Cimex, they smell like our common bed bug. And our dogs are trained to sniff out any of these similar species of Cimex. And indeed, yesterday, at a residence in Hartford, CT, our dogs alerted to a bug that turned out to be a bat bug.
