Cimex pilosellus is found in North America, most commonly across the northern United States and Canada. Cimex pilosellus may be found both in urban and campestral settings following their bat hosts and occasionally spreading to humans. It has two common names: batbugs and bedbugs. They are often called batbugs because they are found almost exclusively on bats in North America. However, all Cimicidae have very similar morphologies, and on the occasion that Cimex pilosellus infests a human residence, it will often be confused for common bedbugs.
