Identifying Bed Bugs
Bed bugs are reddish brown color and about 3-5mm in size. They have flat bodies and are oval in shape, similar to ticks. With six legs and a thirst for blood, bed bugs are adept at staying out of sight. The most common place for bed bugs to be found is where people sleep, including mattresses, couches or sofas. Bed bugs are nocturnal and are typically most active around 5-6 a.m., making them hard to spot. The best thing to do is look for the telltale signs they leave behind.
Signs of Bed Bugs
- Red or brown stains on the sheets- small spots or smears of blood or brown marks on your sheets are a telltale sign of bed bugs
- Rotten raspberry smell- if you smell something sweet, similar to rotten raspberries, or you smell something similar to almonds, that’s a common sign of a bed bug infestation
- Eggs in the fabric seams- bed bugs typically find dark crevices to lay their eggs, so if you find eggs in between the cushions or in the fabric seams, chances are they are bed bug eggs
