What Does a Bed Bug Bite Look Like?
When a bed bug feeds, it is usually in the early morning about an hour before the sun rises.
At first, the host may not feel the actually bite. The problem is 3-5 days later. This is when the bites start to itch.
Just like a mosquito bite, the more you itch the more the bite itches.
The bed bug bites look like little red welts that will get swollen over time and the host will go through intense itching.
The bites are usually in a “row like” pattern that will form a line on your skin.

How To Inspect Your Home For Bed Bugs
There are many different areas of your home that bed bugs love to hide.
In order to find these nasty critters you will have to kind of start thinking like a bed bug.
Bed bugs love to hide in dark places that are nice and warm. (Please keep that in mind when inspecting)

Signs Of Bed Bugs
There are a couple of sure signs that will let you know if you have bed bugs. When inspecting for bed bugs you will
be looking for signs of their presence.
You will be looking for red spots on your sheets, pillow cases, and mattress.
If you don’t see any red spots this is a good sign but you are not in the clear just yet.
Next, inspect the mattress seams. You will be looking for red spots and black spots. This is the feces of the bed bugs.
Depending the size of the infestation you may actually start seeing juvenile and adult bed bugs crawling around.
Inspect Your Box Springs Next
After you have inspected your mattress, flip it over and move it to the side. Take a look at the top of the box spring first.
Do you see black excrement anywhere on the top of the box spring? If not, look at the corners of the box spring which
most people call the “bumpers” of the box spring. Bed bugs are usually found hiding in the corners and you will see
black stains if bed bugs are present.
Inspect Your Couches, Love Seats & Lazy Boys
Inspecting your couches. love seats and lazy boys is almost the same as inspecting your mattress and box springs.
You are looking for the same signs but since there are a little bit more nooks and crannies for bed bugs to hide
it just may take a little bit more time.
Inspecting Your Home Furniture In a Nutshell
- Pull off the cushions and check the zipper areas. (if applicable)
- look for black stains (bed bug feces)
- flip couch over and look at the “wood frame” of couch for black stains
- bed bugs will be in panic mode and may start trying to hide
