HOW DO I KNOW WHAT A BED BUG IS?
While identifying bed bugs can be very tricky for someone who’s never seen them before, having a rough idea of what to look for can save you many issues down the road. Bed bugs are most commonly noted as small, brown insects that only feed on warm-blooded animals such as humans, dogs, cats, etc. With only being a few centimeters wide, they are incredibly hard to spot unless you’re knowingly looking for them which allows them to bite you and feast on your blood without you even knowing. What makes this even more troublesome is that bed bugs are naturally nocturnal insects which means if you’re not someone to stay up very late, you may never even see a bed bug until you have an infestation.
Bed bugs also get very mixed up with fleas as the appearance of them can seem very similar. The main differences between these two insects though are that unlike bed bugs, fleas are able to jump from one location to another while bed bugs can only crawl to their destination. Also, fleas do not mainly feed on humans but instead go for animals that are close by and will feed during all hours of the day, unlike bed bugs that feed during the night.
HOW WILL I KNOW IF I HAVE BED BUGS?
Spotting bed bugs before an infestation starts takes a bit of luck due to bed bugs natural instinct to hide from any predator and avoid detection. While they have the name bed bugs, this does not mean that they only hide within your bed, it’s just the most commonplace for them to attack due to them being nocturnal insects. They can hide in corners, behind walls, and inseams of furniture to make sure they’re not spotted while they wait for you to leave or fall asleep. While the most common way to know if you have bed bugs before an infestation starts is to physically see them, being able to spot bed bug’s droppings or their skin shedding can be a very big red flag for them being in your living space.
