How Can I Tell If I Have Bed Bugs?
Unfortunately, bed bugs can be hard to find, which makes becoming familiar with the signs of an infestation very important. Many people are also not aware of what bed bugs look like. Bed bugs are small parasitic insects that are about the size and shape of an apple seed. Before they feed, they are flat and brown, but after feeding, they become rounder and take on a reddish-brown color. They can be found in the seams of a mattress, behind a headboard, in light fixtures, behind peeling wallpaper or paint, behind frames, and in between carpets and walls.
Aside from actual bed bug sightings, signs of an infestation include:
- Bed bug skins
- Dark fecal spots on your mattress
- Blood stains on your sheets or pajamas
- A musty odor in your home
- Red, itchy bites on your body
- Pearl white, oval-shaped eggs
If you suspect you have an infestation, reach out to our Greensboro bed bug control experts right away to schedule an inspection.
Symptoms of Bed Bug Bites
While no one likes the idea of having bugs in their bed, you are not in any immediate danger. Bed bugs bite, but they are not known to carry and transmit diseases. Most people who are bitten by bed bugs experience mild irritation, but it is also possible to experience no side effects at all. These bites can occur anywhere on your body, but are most often found on the neck, face, shoulders, arms, hands, and legs. They also often are arranged in clusters or lines.
Common bed bug bite symptoms include:
- Red, itchy bumps
- Burning, painful sensation
These less severe symptoms can be treated with anti-itch creams and over-the-counter hydrocortisone.
However, if you are experiencing more severe symptoms such as difficulty breathing, blisters, fever, nausea, swollen tongue, or irregular heartbeat, you should seek medical attention right away. These symptoms are an indication of an allergic reaction.
How to Avoid Bringing Bed Bugs Home After Traveling
Most bed bug infestations are caused by people bringing bed bugs home after traveling. These insects can easily hitch a ride clothing, backpacks, suitcases, and purses, which makes it very easy to accidentally bring them home with you after being in an infested space such as a hotel. If you’ve got an upcoming trip, our Greensboro bed bug control pros recommend taking some precautionary steps to prevent a bed bug infestation in your home.
To avoid getting bed bugs while traveling, you should:
- Choose your hotel wisely: Be sure to do plenty of research on a hotel before booking a room. An establishment with bad reviews is likely not the best place to stay.
- Check your bed carefully: When you first walk into to your room, leave your luggage by the door and carefully examine the bed using the flashlight on your smartphone. Lift the sheets and carefully check the seams of the mattress.
- Keep your luggage safe: Your luggage should always be kept away from carpeting and the bed. Either keep your suitcase on tile flooring or use a luggage rack.
- Wash your clothes: When you come home from your trip, be sure to go straight to the washing machine and wash all of your clothes with hot water.
- Store your suitcase: Because bed bugs can latch on to a suitcase, we recommend avoiding storing yours in your room. Instead, store it in your basement or garage.
