How to tell if you have bed bugs

First of all, you need to know how to spot bed bugs. Although seeing an actual bed bug is fairly rare, there are other signs that let you know of their presence in your home. When looking for bed bugs, you will want to concentrate your search in your bedrooms, as this is a bed bug's favorite place to hang out.

Signs that you have bed bugs in your Waldorf home include the following.

  1. You see small, brown spots moving around your bed. Bed bugs are small, but they can be seen in pillowcases, under mattresses, and in the corners of headboards.
  2. If you don't actually see a bed bug in the places listed above, you may still be able to see their skins. Thin, crackly, small skins are shed often by bed bugs. So, any shed skin in or around your bed is a telltale sign that you have a bed bug problem.
  3. Probably the largest sign that you have bed bugs is if you wake up with small, red, itchy bumps on your skin. These will be uncomfortable and can be found on any parts of your body that was exposed during the night.
