Bed Bugs Signs
Here are some things to look for if you suspect that the bed bug has taken up residence in your home:
- The presence of itching bites
- Fecal spots
- Red or rusty stains.
- Tiny eggshells or eggs
- Adult bed bugs
If you miss early detection, the result may well be a heavily infested home. At this stage, the signs of bed bugs become more noticeable. They include an offensive, sweet, musty scent released from the bed bug sweat glands.
Bed Bugs Symptoms from Bites
In the early phase of a bed bug infestation, the only symptoms of their presence may be their bite. Most often this begins with finding unexplained bites on your body, especially after waking up in the morning. A bite might be a symptom of bed bugs, but in and of themselves, they are not a reliable method for diagnosing a bed bug infestation. Many times bed bug bites are often mistaken as mosquitoes or dust mites bites, and it can take several days for symptoms to appear.
