Bed Bugs: What, Where and When
Bed bugs are small brown insects that live off the blood of humans, pets and other animals. They have flat bodies that are generally hard to spot. When they feed, they swell and turn red.
Bed bugs prefer to hide near their food. So, typically, you could find them in mattresses, bed frames, box springs, couches and more. They can travel with you through your clothes and luggage.
These pest feed at night. Their bite is often pain-free. But, once welts appear, the victim can experience extreme discomfort and itching.
Signs to Look Out For
The best sign of bed bugs is the one you experience. When you begin to see bites on your body (usually the exposed skin while sleeping) and experience discomfort and itchiness. If you feel this sort of skin discomfort and maybe dread going to bed at night, you might have bed bugs in your space.
The other signs you need to watch out for are:
- Blood marks on your mattress, sheets and pillowcases.
- Bed bug excrement that look like rust on the sheets, walls, beds and mattresses.
- Fecal matter, and shed skin and shells left by bed bugs.
- Musty strong odour from bed bugs’ scent glands.
When you have any of these signs, you need to do something about it to get the bedbugs out of your bedroom! Get a good night’s sleep, free from bed bugs!
