Knowing Your Bed Bugs

If you’ve never had to deal with a bed bug infestation, you might not know what to look for. Before hitting the panic button and calling your bed bug exterminator, you need to know if you are actually dealing with bed bugs. Here are a few signs to look for to know if you need a Portland bed bug exterminator:

  • Bed Bug Control DOs and DON'TsBite marks. Bed bugs are creatures that feed off your blood so you will inevitably have bite marks if you have a bedbug infestation. Bed bug bite marks are raised, red welts that itch and burn. They will most often appear as several bite marks in a line.
  • Bed bug skins. Bed bugs shed their skins while you sleep so you will be able to see the sheddings on your mattress.
  • Dark brown or red stains. Bed bugs come out at night while you’re sleeping, which means they are in the bed with you, and that means they can get crushed when you move. If you find dark red stains on your sheets or mattress, it is from a crushed bed bug. If you find dark brown stains, those are fecal stains left by the bed bugs.

Now that you know these signs, you need to know where to look. The main place to look for these signs is your bed, including your mattress, headboard, and bed frame. Other places to keep an eye on are the floor around your bed, your closets, and anywhere you keep clothing items.
