How to Tell if You Have Bed Bugs
- Bite Marks
You may not notice bites right away or may attribute them to mosquitoes at first. They will usually appear in small groupings or a straight line in areas of the body that are exposed at night. Normally these little bites are the first sign that you have an infestation.
- Where They Hide
Bed bugs are more difficult to eliminate due to their ability to hide within fabrics, mattresses, clothing and withing walls. While they are most common in bedrooms, their ability to live for weeks to months after feeding allows them to move into adjacent rooms or apartments.
- Don't Panic...Yet
While bugs themselves are difficult to see and identify, if you do see one it may not be a bed bug. Bed bugs look almost identical to the harmless carpet beetle with tiny, flat oval bodies are about the size of an apple seed. A professional will be able to identify the subtle differences and behaviors of the two.
- Clues Left Behind
Shells or skins the bed bug has shed can be left behind and are good (but rare) indicators of infestation. A much much more common sign are red or brown smears on the bedding/fabric from blood and fecal matter from the bugs themselves.
