How Can You Tell If Your Bed Is Infested?

Spread the love

Have you ever heard the saying ‘don’t let the bedbugs bite’? well I am guessing that you have and you might be wondering how you can tell if the parasitic critters may or may not be in your bed. If you are wondering, then you have come to the right place. Here are few ways for you to detect whether or not your mattress is infested: 

Bites, blood and burning skin 

The bites of these critters can be quite irritating as they often become red and itchy sometimes leaving welts on the skin. And although the bite is not harmful to humans in terms of disease it is still an issue that must be dealt with urgently as the insects feed on exposed skin. If you are unsure then remember that their bites tend to look very similar to that of other insects so you need to inspect your bed in order to verify what bit you exactly. Call professionals who know a thing or two about bed bug removal and they will be able to help you get rid of the problem. 

Looks for stains, dark spots and shells on your bed 

Use your vision to detect any physical signs of parasitic life forms on your mattress. Carefully examine everything by taking enough time to look through your bedding and sheets. There may be reddish stains on your mattress from the bugs being crushed while you were sleeping. There may also be black spots from when the creatures defecated. Some people even find the tiny pale yellow shells of eggs that were shed when the creepy crawlies hatched. So keep a watchful eye as it may be quite apparent if you have these creatures living in your furniture and you will likely need to get bed bug pesticide in order to remove them. View more here

Unpleasant nights and a smelly mattress 

The bugs are active all night so when you lay down to rest it is a feast for them. As horrible as that might sound, it is exactly what happens, hence why you need to get rid of them as soon as you notice they are there. An additional clue to the infestation in your sleeping quarters in the repugnantly musty odour which is caused as a result of the pheromones these bugs emit. The larger their number the worse your bed smells. 

Take precaution and make sure that you get rid of the bugs as soon as possible if you in fact discover that you have them in your bed or any other furniture for that matter, a good exterminator can eliminate them in no time. And if you do not have these bugs then congratulations on not having to deal with an infestation.
