How Can I Tell If It's Bed Bugs In My Home?

One of the hardest things about bed bugs is their secretive nature. It can be hard to see the bed bugs that are biting you in the night or even clues of their presence. Often itchy red bites are the only real sign, and even these can only become apparent days after a bed bug bite making infestations hard to catch in their early stages. If you think you may have bed bugs in Montgomery County, there are a few things you can check for, including:

  • Reddish-brown spots on bedding, furniture, or upholstery
  • Bed bug shed skins, eggs, or eggshells
  • A musty odor that grows stronger over time
  • Itchy bites that appear in lines or clusters
  • Live or dead bed bugs

If you notice these or other signs of bed bugs, it's important to contact a professional pest control company for assistance with bed bug control

Are Bed Bug Bites Dangerous?

Unlike some pests, bed bugs are not known to spread diseases through their bites, but even without having to worry about illnesses being spread, bed bug bites are no small matter. These insects reproduce at alarming rates, and infestations can quickly overtake a home. When populations go untreated for long enough, they can lead to anemia in both people and our pets. And while not as dangerous as some insect bites, bed bug bites are extremely itchy and often lead to secondary infections from excessive scratching. 

Why Do I Have Bed Bugs In My Home?

The unfortunate truth of the matter is that bed bugs were most likely brought into your home by you or your guests. Bed bugs are hitchhiking travelers. They don't jump or fly and are limited in their travel options. Instead of spending a lot of energy on moving from place to place, they simply crawl onto the belongings of unsuspecting people and catch a ride to a new location.

While there are places that are known for being bed bug hot spots, like transportation stations or hotel and motel rooms, bed bugs can spread in any area that has multiple groups of people passing through. You can help prevent the spread of bed bugs into your Montgomery County home by avoiding putting your bags or luggage on the floor in public areas. It's also helpful to not leave your items near other people's belongings to avoid the transfer of bed bugs from one home to another.
