How Can Homeowners Identify Bed Bugs?
There are common signs indicating the presence of bed bugs in a home. The Environmental Protection Agency recommends homeowners routinely examine sheets and mattresses for reddish stains, dark spots, and eggs. Of course, if live bed bugs are spotted, it’s important to take steps immediately to eliminate the pests. Bed bugs are oval and relatively flat. Quality pictures are available online, allowing homeowners to easily identify the pests.
Do Bed Bugs Live in Places Other Than Beds?
Unfortunately, bed bugs can live in a variety of places as long as there are hosts nearby to feed on. They prefer dark areas like cracks, which is why bedding provides a great place to hide between feedings. Bed bugs can also easily live in many other places, especially with larger infestations. Look in drawers, boxes of stored items, suitcases, closets, and any other area that’s dark most of the time. Even laptop computers are frequent hiding spots. If those tell-tale reddish stains are visible, bed bugs are likely present.
