How to Identify a Bed Bug Issue in Your Home
While it can sometimes be difficult to identify a bed bug problem without professional assistance, there are signs that you can search for that are a clear indicator of a bed bug problem. Call our trusted bed bug control team if you identify one or more of the following within your home:
Look for blood spots on the mattress
Oftentimes, one of the first indicators of a bed bug issue is blood spots on the mattress. You may find that there are rust coloured stains on the mattress where the insect has impacted the area. This is a clear sign that there are more bed bugs in and around your home.
Check skin for bite marks
A secondary way to check for bed bugs in and around your home is to check for bite marks on the skin. You or your children may be bitten by bed bugs if they have found their way into your mattress or on your clothes. The bed bug bite is likely to appear as a series of dots on the skin. If the dots begin to itch after several days, this is a clear sign they are bed bug bites. The itching and swelling can last as long as nine days.
Watch for a musty odour
If you have bed bugs in your home, particularly in smaller spaces such as a bedroom or attic space, you may find that the area has a musty smell. This is a clear indicator that there is a bed bug infestation that has been ongoing for a period of time within the home. Covering up the odour with a cleaning agent will do nothing to rid your home of the bed bugs and the overall infestation.
