What different kinds of larvae can you find in beds?
Well, this is an interesting question, and I'm not sure just yet where this response is going to go, so we'll just get started. First of all, I guess I would say that there are NO kinds of larvae that anyone should routinely expect to find in beds. About the only bugs that would visit a bed for some purpose in their lifestyles would be bed bugs and other nighttime blood feeders, like mosquitoes or kissing bugs. Mosquito larvae, of course, are restricted to water and the bed bugs and kissing bugs do not have "larvae" as their early stages, but instead have "nymphs". Either of these could crawl to the bed from some nearby hiding place to feed on a sleeping person, and over the past couple of years I have been sent images of kissing bug nymphs found in bedrooms that clearly had recently fed on someone.
