Juvenile and adult bed bugs can be both light brown and red in color. They look like a tiny football with 2 antenna on top of there head and have 6 legs.

How Do You Know If You Have Bed Bugs?
This is kind of a loaded question because you could have bed bugs and not even know it.
Bed bugs can travel and attach themselves to your clothes at any given time. This is one of the reasons why they are spreading so fast.
Some people honestly don’t realize they may already have bed bugs in their home. Other times people have bed bugs and are embarrassed to let someone know that they have bed bugs.
How To Inspect For Bed Bugs
There are many different signs or evidence that will put up a red flag that you may have bed bugs.
Most of the times you will not be able to see bed bugs because they’re usually hiding in the day time. If you rattle them up they will start to scatter.
Keep in mind that just because you don’t actually see bed bugs, please don’t think that you are bed bug free just yet.
Areas To Inspect First

When checking your mattress, pillow cases, and bed sheets, you will be looking for red and black stains.
Depending on the type of infestation you have, you may even see some bed bugs hiding in nooks and crannies.

Bed Bug Bites
One of the sure signs that you might have a possible bed bug infestation on your hands is if you wake up in the middle of the night feeling like you are getting bit up.
In many cases, bed bug bites occur on the neck, back, shoulders, and arm areas. They also target legs, ankles, and feet as well.
A bed bug bite is almost like a mosquito bite in terms of pain and discomfort. At first it will look like a red dot on the skin.
Bed bug bites are usually in a line or pattern. After 2-5 days you will experience intense itching and in many cases the bites will swell up and will possible blister and bleed due to the scratching. If this is the case then see your doctor immediately.
How Do You Get Bed Bugs?
There are so many different ways that bed bugs can travel. Once I tell you all the different ways you might have used these forms of travel yourself.
Heck, you may have even been exposed to bed bugs without even knowing it.
Bed bugs can hitch a ride in a variety of different ways.
They are great hitch hikers and many times they could be on your clothes dropping eggs which is how many people get bed bugs.
A family or friend may have had or had bed bugs at one time and decides to visit your house.
Sometimes they are unaware that they are actually carrying a bed bug hitch hiker on their clothes or purse and now you are stuck dealing with bed bugs.

- Second Hand Furniture or Clothes
As of late, I have been noticing a lot of people contacting me and they have told me that they think they may have got bed bugs because they purchased a pre-owned piece of furniture.
I just wanted to let you know that second hand furniture is rising to the top of the list of reasons why people are now dealing with bed bugs. Just please be aware.
How To Get Rid Of Bed Bugs
We hear horror stories of how much difficulty people are having trying to get rid of bed bugs.
These things are not easy to get rid of and sometimes people just thrown in the towel and just say “the heck with this” and end up doing something drastic like throwing away every piece of furniture or clothing in a bag and tossing it.
One man used a highly flammable liquid to wipe his interior of his car because it was infested with bed bugs.
Apparently he forgot he did this and lit up a cigarette and the picture above is the result.
Some people even take all of their furniture and set it on fire in the back yard because they are so fed up with bed bugs.
There are a couple of ways that you can use to get rid of bed bugs.
- Call an Exterminator
- Do It Yourself
Both have their advantages and this is all up to you and what you feel is in your price range.
Calling an Exterminator
If you think you are unable to take care of the job yourself then call an exterminator.
They can assess the situation and determine how much of bed bug infestation you have and give you an estimate of the cost.
Some exterminators use different methods to kill bed bugs and may require you to leave your home for a couple of days so they can “tent” your home.
Other pest control companies use a heating method where they heat your whole home. This is a great method but can get very pricey depending on the infestation.
Get Rid Of Bed Bugs Yourself
Many people are learning that with the right knowledge and a bed bug spray that actually works,they can actually get rid of bed bugs themselves without having to call an exterminator.
I know a lot of bed bug sprays promise you the world that it works and then once you use it, the bed bugs go away for a couple of week and then all of the sudden they come back and it feels like you are back to square one again.
