Common signs Bed Bugs Leave Behind

Bed Bugs are attracted by warmth. They hide anywhere they know they can be kept warm and unseen. These nocturnal creatures detect carbon dioxide emitted from warm-blooded hosts. They are mainly in your bedroom because they like to feed on your blood while you are warm and sleeping. That is why the mattress and box spring is the best place to check for signs of an infestation such as blood spots.

Bed Bugs can quickly grow from a few invaders to a full blow Bed Bug Infestation in a matter of weeks!

What to look for:

Small blood spots

Usually found under mattress covers when they get accidentally crushed.

Black or brown droppings

These are very small but smears when they get accidentally crushed.

Shedding skin

As they feed on human blood, they grow more-plump causing them to grow from their nymphs.

Sticky white eggs

Female bed bugs lay about 200 – 500 eggs in her lifetime living about 4 – 6 months.

Unpleasant musty odor

A bed bug releases pheromones from their skin to attract other bugs, which causes reproduction, creating a bigger infestation.

Where to look:

Bed bugs are so tiny that sometimes they may not be seen with the naked eye until they become full-grown adults. Because they quickly hide when bright light is present, it is good to inspect these areas with a flashlight to detect a potential infestation:

  • Mattresses
  • Seams of bedding
  • Headboards
  • Bed framing
  • Box Springs
  • Under tables and dressers
  • In clutter around the bed
  • Any crack and crevices

How does a bed bug infestation start?

The first thing you may think about when you are experiencing a bed bug infestation is, “How did they get here in the first place?” In addition to the signs listed above, there are a few more factors to consider regarding bed bug infestations.

Bed bugs do not just grow from thin air. They come from another source that was probably already infested and brought into your beautiful home. Bed bugs are professional hitchhikers and follow you by clothing or baggage.

In most cases, Bed Bugs come from a hotel or motel you have recently stayed. Before getting comfortable, be sure to check your hotel room for any bed bugs. Traveling is the most common cause of Bed Bug infestation.

Another common cause is bringing used furniture or mattresses into your home. Be sure to watch out and refer to the “what to look for” signs on this page when inspecting.
