The most obvious indicators of an infestation is by the tell-tale bite marks– often numerous in a line– on the face, neck, arms, hands, or any other body parts while sleeping. These bite marks might take as long as two weeks to develop in some people so it is vital to look for other indicators of bed bugs in homes and businesses.

Signs of Bed bugs

The most accurate method to identify a potential infestation is to look for physical indicators of bed bugs. When cleaning, changing bed linen, or staying away from home, look for:

  • Rusty or red discolorations on bed sheets or mattresses caused by bed bugs being squashed.
  • Dark spots about the size of a period, which are bed bug waste matter and might bleed on the material like a marker would.
  • Eggs and eggshells, which are small (about 1mm), light yellow skins that nymphs shed as they grow .
  • Live bed bugs

Where To Try To Find Bed Bugs

When they are not feeding, bed bugs hide in a wide array of places. Around the bed, they can be found near the piping, seams and tags of the mattress and box spring, and in cracks on the bed frame and headboard.

If the bedroom is heavily infested, you might find bed bugs:

  • In the seams of chairs and couches, in between cushions, in the folds of curtains
  • In cabinet joints
  • In electric receptacles and appliances
  • Under loose wallpaper and wall hangings
  • At the junction where the wall and the ceiling meet
  • Also in the head of a screw!

Because bed bugs are only about the width of a credit card, they can squeeze inside incredibly small hiding spots. If a gap can hold a credit card, it could hide a bed bug. Make sure to check around where you’ll be sleeping, and don’t let the bed bugs bite.
