KEEPING YOUR EYES OPEN FOR BED BUGS
The smaller the infestation, the easier bed bug extermination is to conduct. That’s why it’s important to spot any possible infestation as early as possible.
SIGNS OF BED BUGS
Bed bugs are good at hiding, but not good at hiding evidence. The careless clues they leave are the best indicator your room is overrun with bed bugs. The clues to look for include:
Shed bed bug skins, exoskeletons or shells
Fecal stains on your mattress and bedding
Blood stains on your sheets and pajamas
SIGNS OF BED BUG BITES
Bed bug bite reactions in skin look similar to those caused by fleas and mosquitoes. Telling which insect caused a bite might not be possible.
Look for these signs of symptoms of a bed bug bite:
Raised, red welts
Burning and itching
Bed bug bite rash across a localized area
Straight lines of multiple bites
WHERE TO LOOK
Proper bed bug control requires a watchful eye. To feed on humans, bed bugs want close proximity to the host.
In the bedroom, box springs, headboards, and bed framing are favorite spots for these pests. They may also settle into furniture and fixtures that are close to a bed.
Bedrooms are not the only place where bed bugs can be a concern. The feeding doesn’t have to be at night. All bed bugs are looking for are human hosts inactive long enough to provide a meal.
Getting rid of bed bugs is difficult. Any place that humans sit, rest, or sleep can be a place that bed bugs are introduced or feed.
Sitting for two hours in a movie theater makes you a target. A favorite recliner in the living room can also make you a target. You can also become a target taking a taxi across town.
PUT BEDBUG WORRIES TO REST WHEN YOU TRAVEL
Bed bugs have an uncanny ability to spread using unsuspecting people and their belongings as carriers.

First, check travel reviews before visiting a hotel, and be careful of those with multiple reports of bed bugs.
