De-Bugging Your Bed From Bed Bugs
Like other household pests, there are indications that your home may have been invaded by one of the greatest nuisances of all: bed bugs. Infamous for sleepless nights and irritable bites, these minute critters will quickly drain both your energy and wallet if not paid prompt attention. Look for the following warning signs that your bedroom is, indeed, under attack:
Rust-Colored or Dark Spots on Bed Linens
Detested for their vampirish tendencies, bed bugs often leave behind signs that they have taken bites from your flesh. While spots may also indicate droppings, both are a likely indication that your bed has become the unwitting residence of these blood-thirsty bugs.
Musty Aroma Around the House
A consequence of scent glands on their body, bed bugs tend to leave a musty aroma wherever they have taken up abode. Happy residents of any cloth-based materials, check for this smell not just in the bedroom but in closets and on furniture.
Unexplained Itchy Red Bumps
One of the most obvious signs that your home is under attack, tiny bumps on your skin are an indication that bed bugs have been feasting overnight. While the small size of bites may appear as little more than a prick, their sudden appearance will both itch and irritate.
