How Do You Know If You Have Bed Bugs?
Since bed bugs can flatten their bodies, they can hide in very small crevices, especially around the bed area. They are found in habitual hiding places, preferably close to a blood meal. That’s you. You are their “blood meal”.
While they are great at hiding, it’s fairly easy to determine if you have bed bugs. If your or your family are experiencing a red, itchy rash that is otherwise of unknown origin, bed bugs are the likely culprit. They are nocturnal by nature so they are not often seen, but they do leave behind fecal matter and blood spots that are tell-tale signs of infestation. If you observe black or rust colored spots on your mattress or bedding, you have bed bugs.
