Bed bugs are among the most dreaded pest infestations a homeowner can face and many don't know how to correctly identify them. Adult bed bugs are oval, flat, approximately 1/5-inch-long and brownish-red or translucent in color (depending on their last feeding). Their nymphs appear identical to the adults, but smaller in size. Bed bugs feed on people at night when they are asleep and hide in mattresses and box springs, cracks in bed frames, under loose wallpaper, behind picture frames and inside furniture and upholstery. These insects are commonly found in areas where people spend most of their time: on mattresses, box springs, bed frames, and couches. Bed bugs leave behind molts, unexplained bites that appear overnight and bloodstains on bed sheets, seams of the mattress, box spring, and bed frame.
Bed bugs are experts at hiding and often homeowners don't even realize they have an infestation until it's grown to be a sizeable problem. If you suspect a bed bug problem in your home, you'll want to act fast in order to control the spread. Evidence of a bed bug infestation includes:
When not feeding, bed bugs typically hide around the bed; they can be found near the seams, piping and tags of the mattress and box spring. Bed bugs also like to hide in cracks and joints on the bed frame and headboard. When a room is heavily infested, you may find bed bugs in these areas:
