What Do Bed Bugs Look Like
Bed bugs are elusive pests that can infest homes and businesses without warning. Identifying them early is crucial for effective extermination. Adult bed bugs are small, reddish-brown insects that are flat and oval-shaped, resembling the size of a small apple seed. They have six legs and antennae. Their bodies swell and turn a deeper red after feeding on blood (blood meals). The young bed bugs (nymphs) are smaller and lighter in color, making them harder to spot. Their small size and nocturnal behavior make them difficult to spot. Their eggs are look like tiny white pieces of rice.
These nasty pests feed on the blood of humans and animals, typically during the night. Their stealthy nature finds them hiding in cracks and crevices during the day. This can make it challenging to detect and exterminate them. Understanding their behavior is key to implementing targeted and efficient pest control measures.
Bed Bug Bites and Allergic Reactions
One of the most common questions we are get is “How can we check for bed bugs?” Signs of a bed bug infestation can be waking up with itchy red welts or small rashes. While not everyone reacts to their bites, some may experience allergic reactions. That being said, even the Mayo Clinic says “Some people have no reaction to bedbug bites”. This makes bites a poor indicator to confirm a bed bug infestations.
Blood Stains and Fecal Matter
Inspecting your bedding and furniture for small blood stains and dark fecal matter is another way to detect infestations. These blood stains are signs of them being crushed just during your normal use of the items, such as laying on your bed. Their fecal matter appearsd as small, dark stains on the surfaces. Often they appear as small black dots in the areas they inhabit. This evidence they leave behind helps us confirm their presence, aiding in the early identification of the problem.
A visual inspection by a trained expert is the best way to find a bed bug issue. Identifying these signs early can help prevent the infestation from spreading. They are often found in mattress seams, box springs, upholstered headboards, and other tightly consealed upholstered furniture.
