Summary of the Signs of Bed Bugs Video
– – Hello, this is Darrell with BUGCO Pest Control and today we’re in The Woodlands answering the question, how do I know I have bed bugs?
So a few telltale signs of bed bugs are going to be, when you wake up in the morning if you have itchy little welts often times confused with mosquito bites. Sometimes people will call asking for bed bug inspections when actually they have been outside, they’ve been camping, and they simply have mosquito bites or perhaps they left the door open, a mosquito got in, and while they’re sleeping, they could get bit.
With bed bugs however, some of the signs are going to be blood spots on or around the mattress, possibly pillow, towards the feet, or basically where you’re laying. You roll over, you shift in the middle of the night, and if you do crush one it will leave a blood stain. I know it’s gross, however, that is something that we’re going to be looking for.
Bed bugs are hitchhikers so some ways that they could be introduced if someone comes over to your home who has bed bugs. If a guest has visited a location that has bed bugs, they could have come on their person, on their purse, in boxes, clothing articles, suitcases. (BUGCO Pest Control responded to an infestation where caregivers for an invalid had introduced bed bugs to the invalid’s room.) . Bed bugs can get also be transported to your home from a hotel, where when you put your luggage down, your clothing articles or if you sleep, they get on to you. Like I said they’re lazy, they’re not going to travel from room to room unless it is a severe infestation, in which, at that time you’d want to get it addressed very soon.
Signs of Bed Bugs May be Easy to Miss at First
Now in the beginning phases of an infestation, the telltale signs like I said are going to be small. It’s going to be the bites, the blood smears. You may also see adult bed bugs in the seems of your mattress or in the upholstery of your furniture. You may also see fecal matter from bed bugs on sheets.
We’ll ask questions to help us determine if you have a bed bug infestation. Have you traveled recently, have you had guests over recently, in which case it could be confined to one room or just the couch and it could be easily addressed, but as you travel from room to room you could spread the infestation. So where it was in previously just the living room it could go from the living room to the master bedroom or guest or other bedrooms in the house.
You are not going to see signs of bed bugs typically in bathrooms or kitchens. There’s no place for them to hide. The bedbugs are going to want to hang out in places like couches, beds, and other places that humans are going to sit down, rest, and give those lazy little hitchhikers a chance to come up and get their blood meal.
