How Do I Know If I Have Bed Bugs?

Identifying Bed Bugs

One of the biggest pest control nightmares any homeowner could face is bed bugs. There’s a sense of dread you experience when you realize you have a bed bug infestation. However, the sooner you realize you have a problem, the sooner you can do something about it. If you live in New Jersey, it’s a good idea to be aware of what to look for if you think you might have a bed bug problem. Here are a few signs to keep in mind.

Bed Bug Bites

Have you woken up with bug bites in the morning? If so, you might have bed bugs. Their bites are extremely itchy; much more so than mosquito bites. Bed bugs also frequently bite in a series of three bites, which is known as “breakfast, lunch and dinner.”

Blood Stains

Check your mattress and your sheets for strange blood stains. These occur from bed bug excrement, or they may occur because you rolled over on a bed bug in your sleep.

Bed Bug Skins

As bed bugs grow, they shed their skin. Check your sheets to see if you can find any of these old skins lying around. If you have seen any of the above signs in your home, it’s important for you to contact a NJ pest control specialist for a free pest inspection as soon as possible.
