3 Signs You Might Have Bedbugs, Wahiawa, Hawaii

The bedbugs living in your house will have you sleeping on the couch, and it’s essential to address the issue as soon as possible. Bedbugs are small tough to spot, so look out for warning signs if you have a hunch they’re under your mattress. Short of seeing the bugs themselves, here are some clear signals that it’s time to call a pest control expert.

Bedbug Warnings

Bites & Welts

pest controlBedbugs are active at night, and they’ll bite while you’re sleeping. The bites cause small red bumps or welts that are smaller than mosquito bites. You might see the bumps show up in a line or clustered on exposed skin. While these bites are usually painless, they can become incredibly itchy over time. 

Blood Stains

These insects draw blood when they bite your skin, so look for small blood spots on your sheets, pillowcases, or under the mattress. These stains might be dark orange and are likely grouped in a crevice or corner. Bedbugs also give off a foul scent, and you might notice a musty smell on your sheets.

Organic Matter 

Like other pests, bedbugs leave traces behind. They frequently shed their exoskeletons, so you’ll notice these shells on your sheets or within the bed frame. These pests will also leave behind eggs and fecal matter stains. Look for these signs under your bedding and inspect the crevices of your bed frame.
