Seen in your dreams, they indicate continued sickness and unhappy states. Fatalities are intimated if you see them in profusion.
To see bedbugs simulating death, foretells unhappiness caused by illness. To mash them, and water appears instead of blood, denotes alarming but not fatal illness or accident. To see bedbugs crawling up white walls, and you throw scalding water upon them, denotes grave illness will distress you, but there will be useless fear of fatality.
If the water fails to destroy them, some serious complication with fatal results is not improbable.
