Signs of a Bed Bug Infestation
Without professional intervention, a bed bug infestation can quickly spread throughout your home. These tiny red-brown insects tend to hide during the day, leading them to be difficult to detect. They also make their homes in more than just your bed and can spread into furniture, carpeting, clothing, outlets and much more.
Look for the following signs:
- Small blood stains on bedding
- Dark spots on bedding or walls from the insects’ droppings
- Eggshells or shed beg bug skin
- An unexplained musty odor
How Do Bed Bugs Get in Your Home?
There are three main ways bed bugs get into your home: by bringing them back in luggage, through a visitor to your home, and by secondhand our used furniture. If you have been waking up with irritating or itchy bumps, you may have a bed bug problem.
What Do Bed Bugs Look Like?
Bed bugs are small, oval-shaped, wingless, reddish-brown insects that feed on blood. Bed bugs have flat bodies and are around the size and shape of an apple seed. However, after they feed, their bodies swell and they turn more of a reddish color.
The flatness of their bodies allows them to fit into tiny spaces, making it possible for them to get just about anywhere they can find a food source. Don’t let their name deceive you, bed bugs can be found in soft materials other than your mattress, including clothing, sofas, chairs, and more.
In addition to being cautious about what comes into your home, especially when it comes to found or secondhand furniture, there are a few steps you can take to prevent a bed bug infestation.
Take the following steps to help keep bed bugs out of your home:
- Install metal headboard instead of wooden ones
- Protect your mattress and box spring with bed bug resistant covers
- Thoroughly wash and dry secondhand clothing with high heat before putting it away
- Inspect hotel mattresses for signs of bed bugs after checking in
- Always use a luggage rack and avoid putting your belonging on bed of the floor when travelling
- Vacuum often, especially around beds and sofas
- Reduce clutter to prevent bed bug nesting sites
- Have your property inspected by a professional at the first sign of an infestation
