Examining Your Home: Where To Look For Bed Bugs
Can you see bed bugs? Perhaps, but it’s far more likely that you would see signs of these pests, such as blood stains on bed sheets, before you see an actual bed bug. Once you believe you have these pests in your home, you can then look in their common hiding places to see if you can spot them. Some of the areas where you should be on the lookout for bed bugs include:
- Seams of mattresses
- Seams of box springs
- Underneath mattresses and box springs
- In cracks in walls or floors
- Behind light switch covers and outlet covers
- In grooves or cracks in furniture
Although bed bugs may initially appear in only one room, likely a bedroom, they can migrate to other rooms of the home as the infestation grows.
Bed Bug Infestations: The Problems These Pests Cause
Some of the early signs of bed bugs are also signs that they are causing problems for your health. Because these pests bite your skin and consume your blood while you sleep, you may notice itchy welts and red spots on your skin, as well as small dried blood spots on sheets and pillowcases. Fortunately, bed bugs don’t carry any known diseases. But it can be quite stressful if you know you have bed bugs, leading to sleepless nights.
