Bed bugs are one of the most common (and one of the most feared) pests in North Carolina, and here in Charlotte, we’re not immune.
Do you have bug bites on your body, but aren’t sure if bed bugs are to blame? Look for signs of the bugs themselves. If bed bugs are the cause of your discomfort, they’ll leave evidence behind. When you spot the warning signs of a bed bug infestation, let us know, and we’ll kick out the unwanted guests that have made themselves at home in your living space.
Symptoms of a bed bug infestation include:
- Spots of blood or bed bug droppings on your sheets or mattress
- Shed skins or eggshells
- Persistent musty odors
- Small, red, itchy bites on your hands, arms, and legs, often clustered in groups of three or four
What Bed Bugs Look Like
Adult bed bugs are oval-shaped, wingless insects that are brown in color. In adulthood, they measure between 4mm-5mm in length. Nymphs (baby) bed bugs are much smaller and can be difficult to see with the naked eye.
Where Bed Bugs Come From
Bed bugs are very good at travelling, and they usually latch onto something with a fabric surface to get around. This can be anything from luggage, purses, and backpacks to used furniture.
Bed bugs are also able to travel between rooms in places like apartment complexes, hotels, and multi-unit buildings. This means that bed bugs can make their way into almost any home after something as common as a family vacation or the purchase of some used furniture online.
Where Bed Bugs Hide
Bed bugs hide in a number of unusual places. If you think you might have a bed bug infestation, you’ll want to check:
- The edges of electrical outlets
- The seams of chairs and couches
- Between cushions
- In the folds of curtains
- Spaces where walls and ceilings meet
- On and under box springs
- Any other small crack around the home
