Bed bug is included in the Wikipedia CD Selection, see Bed bug at Schools Wikipedia.

I think it would be beneficial to add that the spermalege is a product of coadaptive evolution. It also might be beneficial to explain that bed bug females have fully functional genitals and birthing canal. Info about the evolution of traumatic insemination should be added explaining how it was a behavior meant to decrease sperm competition. The reproduction subsection of behavior should be consolidated with the reproduction subsection of physical description. Sperm and seminal fluid allocation and egg production subsections should be consolidated with the reproduction section. — Preceding unsigned comment added by Dudas 91 (talk • contribs) 23:57, 10 October 2013 (UTC)
I think the information in the behavior section is detailed and concise, but it would be nice if the subtitles within the section were available in the contents at the top of the page. I noticed only "Reproduction" was visible there but I think the smaller headings should be added as well. I am not sure if you have come across a discussion of the evolution of these behaviors in the literature, but if you have it would be good to add a little bit about that.
I went through and added more links. There were also a few minor spelling errors I fixed. All and all, though, I think that this article is good and is potentially ready to be nominated for a good article. Rosemaryshanley (talk) 22:59, 20 November 2013 (UTC)
