Bedbugs evolved more than 100 million years ago

Summary:
Bedbugs -- some of the most unwanted human bed-mates -- have been parasitic companions with other species aside from humans for more than 100 million years, walking the earth at the same time as dinosaurs.


Work by an international team of scientists, including the University of Sheffield, compared the DNA of dozens of bedbug species in order to understand the evolutionary relationships within the group as well as their relationship with humans.

The team discovered that bedbugs are older than bats -- a mammal that people had previously believed to be their first host 50-60 million years ago. Bedbugs in fact evolved around 50 million years earlier.

Bedbugs rank high among the list of most unwanted human bedfellows but until now, little was known about when they first originated.

Experts have now discovered that the evolutionary history of bed bugs is far more complex than previously thought and the critters were actually in existence during the time of dinosaurs. More research is needed to find out what their host was at that time, although current understanding suggests it's unlikely they fed on the blood of dinosaurs. This is because bed bugs and all their relatives feed on animals that have a "home" -- such as a bird's nest, an owl's burrow, a bat's roost or a human's bed -- a mode of life that dinosaurs don't seem to have adopted.

Fake news, there were no beds back then.

When you stare into a mirror and nobody is there, you will know the reflection has become self aware.

The life spand of some parasites I think goes into 100s of years.

according to lop science institute of the study of bedbugs, they have exsisted in times when great lop dinos roamed the earth

RE: Bedbugs evolved more than 100 million years ago
It's been a while since we had a bedbug thread, but now is a good time to warn the readers that it doesn't take $10,000 from an extermination company to get rid of them. You perhaps have read horror stories of infestations. In Hawaii we have them as they do almost everywhere, but a little internet searching will discover simple ways to deal with an infestation that cost almost nothing. First, the little bugger needs human blood to survive, they don't do well on any other animal's blood. Second, the most likely place they hide is in your mattress so they can feed on you at night. So first you take your mattress out side and get rid of the bugs hiding in it or ditch your mattress. THEN, to prevent the bugs from infecting your new mattress you put slick box tape on the legs of the frame because they can't climb something slick or the sticky side either. Move the bed out from the wall so they can't climb up the wall and get on the bed. If they can't feed on you they will simply die of hunger in less than a month. There are other things you can do to trap them if they are numerous, which are described at the link:

Evidence that there were bedbugs in the Dinoage in the City of Bedrock, but they were more talented then
