How to Check Your Home for Bedbugs

What’s are those itchy bumps? Oh no! Could it be bedbugs? It is every homeowner’s nightmare to discover the telltale signs of bedbug infestation. Bedbugs are notoriously difficult to remove from the home. The only way to know for sure if you have bedbugs is to have an expert in pest control, like your friends at Affordable Bio Control Pest Management, identify the bugs.

Here are some bedbug facts:

  • Bedbugs are tiny, brownish insects that are oval and flat.
  • They feed on blood.
  • Bedbugs are around the size of an apple seed.
  • Bedbug lookalikes include: spider beetles and booklice.
  • They leave itchy bumps after biting their host.
  • Their eggs look like specks of dust, usually on your mattress.

If you think uninvited bedbugs have moved in, check for bites on skin that is exposed during sleep, specks of blood on your sheets, and dust-like debris on your mattress.

If you think you have these uninvited guests, don’t panic. Bedbugs enter homes in clever ways, and it is not your fault. Even the most cleanly homes can get bedbugs. These critters hijack luggage, used furniture, or even climb aboard your clothes, purse, or wallet. Unfortunately, they are small and excellent at hiding.
