Identifying If You Have an Infestation
One of the most asked about question is
“How do I Know If I Have Bed Bugs?”
Many times people may have bed bugs and not even realize it.
Other times people are too embarrassed or too afraid to let anyone know that they may be experiencing a bed bug infestation.
In order to really know if you may have a potential bed bug infestation on your hands you will need to look for the most common evidence of bed bugs by retracing your steps and completing some inspections.
Retrace Your Steps – Have you or any of your friends or family members have used public transportation or stayed at any hotels, motels, or bed & breakfast?
Have you purchased any second hand furniture or clothes in the past month?
Document if you have done any of these so that you can determine if its possible where you may have brought home bed bugs from.
Look For Common Signs – Many times it’s not easy finding bed bugs but there are signs or evidence that you will see.
Sometimes you will actually see a bed bug or small nymph crawling on the mattress, headboards, box springs, even behind picture frames.
Their bodies will be oval shaped red or light brown in color with 2 antenna on top of their head and a total of 6 legs (3 on each side)
Female bed bugs will look more longer and slender with the same type of color.
If you don’t see bed bugs crawling around you will then need to perform an inspection of the area of concern (bedroom, couches, and lazy boy chairs)
How To Inspect My Room For Bed Bugs
When inspecting your room for bed bugs you will need to inspect the following places:
- Mattress – (How To Inspect Your Mattress)
- Box Springs – (Box Spring Inspection Guide)
- Pillows & Pillowcases
- Sofa & Cushions
- Recliners & Chairs
- Bed Posts & Wooden Frame
- Dresser Drawers
- Base Boards
- Electrical Wall Outlets
- Door Frames
- Window Sills
- Picture Frames
You will be looking evidence of bed bug activity.
When performing the inspection the first thing that will give you a red flag are black and red stains around the mattress seams, box springs, sheets, and pillow cases.
You may also find exoskeletons (shells) of bed bugs as well. You may even find splattered blood on the sheets, pillow cases, and the wall behind the headboard area of your bed as well.

Preventing Infestations From Spreading
Preventing bed bug infestations from spreading is very possible if you take that extra step and put in extra effort.
Bed bugs can leave eggs on clothing, bed sheets, pillow cases, and other types of linens.
Place your clothing and linens in a plastic garbage bag and make sure to tie the bag in a knot. This will help keep the bed bugs from spreading to other areas in your home.
Take the bags to the laundry room and place the items in the washing machine using hot water. You can use normal every day detergent but to be safe you can wash your belongings
using bed bug laundry detergent that will kill the bed bug eggs.
After the washing cycle has completed place your belongings in a dryer and set it to high heat and let the cycle run for 30 minutes.
Vacuum the Rooms of Concern – Bed bugs can drop eggs in the carpets and area rugs.
You can use a vacuum cleaner (Hepa Is Recommended) so that the eggs will not blow away to other areas of your home and vacuum up the carpet and even mattress seams and box springs if needed.
Make sure that you throw away the vacuum bag to an outside dumpster immediately after using. If your vacuum uses a canister, empty in trash, throw trash bag away outside, and clean canister with alcohol.
Acknowledge & Advise – I know this is the last thing that you want to hear but if you think you have bed bugs or if you think a friend or family member has them please Acknowledge & Advise.
It might be the toughest thing to do but just be honest. Many people get bed bugs from a family member or friend because they were too embarrassed to Acknowledge & Advise.
