Signs of Bed Bugs in Your Home

The most common sign of bed bugs is bite marks on your own skin. These often look like other bed bugs, but are characteristically itchy and can get inflamed. Usually, these bites won’t cause any other symptoms. In addition to bites, there are many other signs of bed bugs:

  1. Bed bug skins or exoskeletons, as well as sticky eggs/eggshells are a sign of an established bed bug infestation
  2. Bed bug feces, which leave dark spots and stains
  3. Blood stains on your sheets, which signals that bed bugs are often feeding overnight.


How to Inspect for Signs of Bed Bugs

If you have noticed any of the above signs of bed bugs, there are several ways you can look for bed bugs in your property by yourself. Always inspect your bed sheets before removing them to look at the edges, tags, and seams on your mattress. Use a magnifying glass to look for live bed bugs, eggs, and nymphs. Inspect your box spring as you would your mattress. Investigate other areas of the home, including upholstered furniture, wall cracks, and even power outlets!
