Signs Of Bed Bugs In Your Home

It is easy to tell that you have a bed bug infestation, right? You just look for lots of bug bites when you wake up. Unfortunately, this is not the case at all. If you're waiting to see bug bites, you may allow these insects to infest your home for months or even years. Here are a few things you should know.

  • Bed bug bites are often slight at first. In fact, you can get bitten by a bed bug and have no reaction at all. That means you don't get a bump, itch, or rash.
  • When you start to see rashy bumps on your skin, you may not realize they're bug bites. There are many things that can cause a bumpy rash, such as an allergy to food or clothing.
  • You may find bites on your skin later in the day, but not notice them when you wake up. It can take hours for bed bug bites to swell, itch, and acquire a rash. Seeing bites later in the day might make you think outdoor insects are biting you.
  • Bed bugs thrive in cluttered spaces and can get into kids' rooms and bite kids for a while before the bites are noticed.
  • Senior citizens have less of a reaction to bed bugs. If bed bugs get into the bed of your parents or grandparents, they may go undetected until the bugs grow a population and spread to other parts of the house.

While bite wounds are one of the early signs of bed bugs, you can't count on bites to let you know that you have an infestation. You need to learn where bed bugs hide so you can search for them and take action when you find them.    

Does Having Bed Bugs In My Home Mean It's Dirty?

There is a common belief that dirty people get bed bugs, and there is a stigma attached to having a bed bug infestation. While bed bugs can do well in a cluttered home, clutter is not a prerequisite to getting a bed bug infestation. Bed bugs don't choose where they live, they spread passively from one location to another. What happens is they climb into or lay eggs in an object, and then we move the object. That's how bed bugs spread. Once they get to a new location, they do what they did at the last location. They find a place to hide near a source of food, come out in the dark to feed, and grow their population. They'll do this in the cleanest of homes. Poor sanitation does not invite a bed bug infestation. It is important to understand this fact. Why? Because you can get bed bugs in places you wouldn't expect. You can get them in a five-star resort or from the home of a friend or family member. Bed bugs thrive when people don't understand how they spread. Knowledge is the key to prevention.
