Signs of Bed Bugs
Various parts of the house can harbor bed bugs, which can be found almost anywhere. It is common for them to live in small groups, hidden in dark areas. Because their nighttime snacks are located directly above them, they are often found in mattresses. Since they are flat and small, they can easily find a seam and slip into the core of your mattress undetected.
While they can be hard to see, there are some pretty clear signs you can look for when searching for bed bugs:
- Blood stains on your sheets or pillowcases.
- Dark or rusty spots of bedbug excrement on sheets and mattresses, bed clothes, and walls.
- Bedbug fecal spots, egg shells, or shed skins in areas where bedbugs hide.
- An offensive, musty odor from the bugs’ scent glands.
What are the Dangers of Bed Bugs?
When bed bugs bite, they inject a chemical that acts as an anesthetic in the area of the bite. As a result, you won’t feel anything while the bugs are feasting on blood. This explains why you can have multiple, even hundreds, of bedbug bites and not wake up.
Despite the fact that bed bugs do not transmit disease, the chemical that they inject into the body can have an adverse effect on humans. Some people are very allergic to the chemical, and break out in a rash. The rash, and possibly raised welts, may last as long as a few weeks before completely clearing up.

Potential Causes of Bed Bugs
Bed Bugs are opportunistic hitchhikers. They’re going to need transportation to get into your house. Fortunately, bed bugs cannot jump or fly. They may appear as a result of a hotel stay, a new piece of furniture, or a ride on the dog or a child.
Bed Bugs can enter your home in a number of ways, and these are some of the most common:
- Have you recently stayed in a hotel or resort? No matter how clean it was, it could have been your first encounter with bed bugs.
- Did you recently ride the bus? It only takes a few minutes for a bed bug caravan to find a new, warm home in your suitcase.
- Have you recently had overnight guests? Guests may unknowingly bring bed bugs into your home. Bugs could be from their home or picked up while traveling. After they leave, wash all their bedding in the hottest water possible.
- Did your kids go to a sleepover? Your kids may bring bed bugs home from a friend’s house. Knowledge of bed bug identification can help prevent infestation. Examine all returned items, especially the seams.
- Do you work outside of the house? Bed bugs can come home with you from work. If you know what bed bug bites look like, you can avoid bringing them home. Bed bug bites usually occur in a line or cluster, often accompanied by a rash.
- Have you gotten any used furniture? Because bed bugs don’t just hide in beds, whenever you pick up or buy used furniture, look closely for black streaks, insect casings, and blood stains.
- Have you had any fun outings in public recently? A locker room smell, black feces deposits, insect shells, and blood staining are all signs of bed bugs
