    Abstract

    Pepijat adalah sejenis ektoparasit yang hanya memakan darah semata-mata. Kesemua tahap tidak matang haiwan ini memerlukan darah untuk proses pertukaran kulit dan pepijat dewasa memerlukannya untuk pembiakan. Bed bug is an ectoparasite that feed exclusively on blood. All stages of nymphs require a blood meal before molting, while adults need it for reproduction. Artificial feeding system is an alternative way to feed these insects by using expired human blood supplies from the hospital blood bank.
