How To Check For Bed Bugs


Helpful Tips On How To Check For Bed Bugs

If you are staying in a hotel room or condo for vacation, make sure you check for bed bugs before you make yourself comfortable. Some signs that there might be bed bugs in your room are blood spots on the sheets, droppings, and casings from the bed bugs. If you wake up with red, itchy spots from bites, then there are probably bed bugs on the mattress. Bed bugs are nocturnal and only come out to feed when you are fast asleep. They are attracted to exposed skin like your arms, hands, and neck. Check out these places that bed bugs love to hide and make sure you check them before you get settled into your vacation.

The Walls

Many people don’t think of bed bugs being on the walls, but they can commonly be found there. Be sure to check the corners where the ceiling meets the wall for tiny black bugs. Those are probably bed bugs, and if there are bed bugs on the walls, that usually means there are more hiding in elsewhere the room.

Bed bugs can travel on walls, especially if the infestation is already at its worst. They will crawl up on walls without you noticing them because of their small size. The electrical outlets on your walls can be a home for these pests. The wall hangings, wallpapers, and the corners of the walls are possible nesting place, so it is best not to leave them out whenever you check for bed bugs.

Bed bugs are not only found in single-family homes, but can also be crawling on walls of apartments, dormitories, hotels, and more. Using the walls, bed bugs can infest all the rooms without difficulty.
