Bed bugs are small insects that dwell in the fabric of mattresses, furniture and curtains. They feed on human blood and are usually detected after they have already fed when the bed bug bites appear on the skin. The act of feeding is virtually unnoticeable, especially during slumber when the pests are most likely to encounter skin, as their piercing body parts inflict little to no pain.
How do you know if you have bedbugs?
The primary indicator that your home or business has bed bugs is the presence of bed bug bites. The skin’s reaction to a bed bug bite can be very uncomfortable and bothersome. Evidence of bed bugs can be found on mattresses, in some cases where they have leaked dark, almost ink-like spots or small blood spots.
What do bed bug bites look like?
Often times, bed bugs bite several times in a straight line across the skin and the bites are pink or reddish in color, and can be very itchy and swell in some cases, depending on the sensitivity of the skin.
Bed bugs have a small head and a wide, oval shaped body with six legs and are dark brownish in color. Bed bugs can live up to a year between feedings, so bed bug treatment is essential for killing bed bugs.
