When to Call the Professionals for a Bed Bug Infestation

February 28, 2019

bed bug bites on skin

When you go to sleep each night, you probably don’t think you are going to wake up in the morning with tiny red bites going up and down your legs. Starting your morning with itchy welts all over your skin is not something anyone wants to go through. But knowing what is biting you is a step in the right direction in order to start changing your circumstance. Tiny, apple seed-sized bed bugs may be your culprit if you keep finding bites, or if you begin noticing signs that indicate your home is infested.

Bed bug infestations come with several indicators, but often these indicators can be hard to spot in the beginning stages of an invasion and will go unnoticed until the infestation has reached a larger size.

  • Blood spots on sheets, blankets, and pillows are a sure fire sign of bed bugs in your home. When bed bugs feed on your blood, they puncture the skin and fill themselves up with your blood. Once they’ve finished feeding, they will go back into hiding, but not before they’ve left a trail of blood spots and excrement behind them.
  • Live bed bugs (or dead ones!) are an obvious indicator of an existing infestation. Seeing these red/brown insects in your bags, carpet, or in your bedding means you need to find bed bug experts to come and get rid of them asap.
  • Tiny white eggs in the folds of your sheets, in couch cushions, or in similar locations can also tell you that you’ve had bed bugs inside of your home long enough for them to reproduce and lay eggs. If you’re seeing bed bug eggs in your home, you can be certain that there are adult bed bugs lurking around as well.
