Signs of Bed Bugs Infestation
Bed bugs are tiny insects that feed on the blood of humans and our animals. They cause painful bites and severe allergic reactions. An adult bug is about the size and shape of an apple seed. Bedbugs are difficult to detect and eliminate on your own, which is why it’s essential to know the signs of a bedbug infestation.
One of the most obvious signs of a bedbug infestation is the presence of bites on your body. Bed bug bites are usually grouped together in a line or a cluster and can be very itchy and uncomfortable. It’s worth noting that not everyone reacts to bedbug bites, so you and your family may not have any visible signs of a bite.
Another sign of a bedbug infestation is the appearance of small, brown colored stains on your sheets and mattress. These stains are caused by bedbugs defecating on your bedding as they feed.
If you suspect that you have a bedbug infestation, it’s essential to inspect your bedroom thoroughly. Our bed bug experts will perform a top to bottom search when hired for a bed bug inspection. Areas we will search are; the seams of your mattress and box spring, and bed frame, as well as any cracks or crevices in your walls or furniture. Bed bugs are experts at hiding, so you may need to use a flashlight or magnifying glass to spot them.
Another sign of a bedbug infestation is the presence of a musty odour in your bedroom. This is uncommon in low level infestations and only noticeable in a severe case of bedbugs.
Finally, if you’ve recently travelled or stayed in a hotel, it’s essential to inspect your luggage and clothing for signs of bedbugs. Bedbugs can easily hitchhike on your belongings and infest your home, so it’s crucial to be vigilant when travelling.
