What Do Bed Bugs Look Like?
These critters are small, brown, and oval-shaped. They may also resemble the color of rust. Did you know that while they have the unfortunate name of bed bug, they can also be found in couches, chairs, backpacks, and clothing! Any space that has soft materials is a welcome spot for bed bugs to make their home. They can molt up to five times before they reach their full size, so they can be extremely difficult to spot, especially if they are not full grown yet. Bed bugs are nocturnal insects, so you probably won’t spot them in the middle of the day.
How Can I Tell if I Have Bed Bugs?
Pull your sheets off your bed and check the corners of your mattress and box spring for shed exoskeletons, egg shells, or small, brown stains. You should also check along bedside tables or end tables, between couch cushions, on your headboard, and in any loose wallpaper you might have. Are there loose blankets lying around? Check those as well. If you see signs or would like a second opinion, call our team today to schedule your inspection.
Do Bed Bugs Pose a Serious Health Risk?
When a bed bug bites you, you may develop a red, itchy bite. While they don’t spread disease, that doesn’t mean that you or others won’t be allergic to their bite. Bed bugs can also cause issues for pets, creating irritations that can lead to skin problems. If you or your pet develops a secondary infection from scratching at the bite, it’s best to see a doctor or veterinarian.
How Can I Treat Bed Bug Bites?
Bites from bed bugs will occur in a cluster or line and will be itchy. You can treat them with antihistamines and anti-itch creams to reduce irritation. Keep the area clean to avoid infection, and as always, if someone is having a severe reaction, take them to the doctor or call 911.
