Not sure if you have bed bugs? Many people only discover bed bugs when they are in a full infestation. However, there are some sneaky signs that you have bed bugs. Knowing what they are can help you catch a bed bug infestation in its early stages.
Bed bug bites are one of the first signs that you have bed bugs. They are red bites, which can vary in size, depending on how sensitive people are to them. What many people notice is that they bleed more than other types of bug bites. That is because bed bug saliva has anticoagulants in it, which means that they can keep bleeding.
One sure sign that you have bed bugs is that you see live bugs. Since their populations grow quickly, seeing even a single bed bug indicates a serious problem. Bed bugs can be hard to spot. They are extremely small. However, they have a tell-tale apple seed appearance. Younger bugs may be white or translucent. If you cannot see them, you might smell them. People report that bed bugs have a musty smell.
You are more likely to spot signs of a bed bug infestation than the bugs themselves. They shed their skin, which is pale yellow. They also leave little rust-coloured spots and stains on sheets and other fabric. If you see these little spots, which can look like little drops of blood, it is a sure sign you have bed bugs. You may also see bed bug eggs. They are tiny, but visible to the naked eye. They look like small white pinheads, and if they are older, they have little black dots on them.
