Do Not Ignore These Bed Bug Warning Signs!

Do Not Ignore These Bed Bug Warning Signs!

Most of our lives, we’re used to hearing warnings about different things – and while most of us are aware, we still tend to ignore until we get to experience them first-hand. For instance, we tend to associate an engine light with a loose gas cap, or it could also mean that the pipes in your HVAC are expanding if your furnace starts to make a rattling noise. However, among all these other things, bed bug signs are one of those that you don’t want to ignore.

If there’s one thing that you need to know about bed bugs, is that they’re surprisingly good when it comes to hiding. It’s good to know that there are early warning signs that you can see, and shouldn’t ignore:

One of the most common signs that you have bed bugs creeping under your mattresses is the noticeable welts on your skin. However, don’t get confused with normal mosquito bites as they may seem similar. If you’ve noticed bites on your skin, take it as an early precaution and take into consideration that there may be bed bugs lurking beneath those sheets.

Another warning to watch out for would be brown stains on your mattress. This is an indication that bed bugs have started to feast on human blood, and those spots you see are bloodstains, or worse – their feces.

At times, you may notice skins from bed bugs as they go through different growth phases. Most often, they shed leaving old exoskeleton (skins) behind. If you see them around your bed, on your mattress, carpets, wall cracks, and/or headboard, you know you have an infestation.

When you see a bed bug, although it is more of confirmation rather than a warning sign, then you know that you have to do something. Knowing what bed bugs look like plays an important role. They’re usually almond-shaped, reddish or brownish in color. If you see these around your bed, it’s confirmed that you have this bed-bug problem going on around in your home.

Just like any other warning signs, it might be tempting to just ignore the problem and pray that it’ll go away on its own. However, this isn’t recommended as you want to make sure that the bed bugs are gotten rid of as soon as you can. Bed bugs found in a single room isn’t a big problem. They can be taken care of and eliminated easily by a professional company. If you don’t do something quick about this, the infestation may occur to other rooms inside your home – and may even multiply and reach your couch, clothing, and carpets. You don’t want this to happen because if it does, it’ll cost you, even more, to get rid of those bed bugs. By being sensitive about the early warning signs and taking care of the problem as soon as possible is a better solution.
