Have you noticed small bites whenever you wake up? Have you been travelling or have had visitors at your house? Bedbugs are commonly found in beds with multiple users such as hotels or guest rooms. A nocturnal bug, they often come out at night and feed on blood. They can sense and are attracted to your body heat and exhalation of carbon dioxide. Due to their small size, they can easily hide amongst bedding, mattresses, bed frames, baseboards, and all crevices, cracks, and folds.
Bedbugs are not harmful or dangerous as they do not transmit any diseases but can become irritating due to their itchy and numerous bites.
Look for these signs when trying to determine whether or not you might have bed bugs:
Itchy bumps and an unusual skin rash on your body
Dark or black spots collected in the patches on your fabric, the fecal matter of bed bugs
Any blood spots on your sheets
White shells, the molted shells of the bugs
An unpleasant, sickly odour
Live insects that are small, light brown, and oval in shape. New nymphs are translucent and difficult to see while matured bugs are flat and wide. Eggs are small, white, and similar to the appearance of a dust speck.
