Signs of Bed Bugs & Bites

The top sign of bed bugs is their bites. Bed bugs feed exclusively on blood, generally at night, and bites are an indication that an infestation is very likely. At first glance, these bites commonly take on the appearance of other kinds of insect bites, such as those from mosquitoes. Bed bug bites can cause a person to experience a range of symptoms, including itchy rashes, hives, or welts. Bites can typically be found on parts of the body that remain exposed while sleeping, such as the neck, arms, and upper body. Bites are often arranged in a zigzag pattern. As with any insect bite, it’s important to seek immediate medical attention if you have a serious reaction.

Bug Bugs Signs and Symptoms to Look for

Infestations can be more accurately identified by examining bed or furniture for physical signs left behind by bed bugs. The following signs of bed bugs found on the fabric surfaces of beds or furniture may help indicate an infestation:

  • Rusty or reddish stains, which result from bed bugs being crushed.
  • Tiny eggs and eggshells. If seen, eggshells are typically a pale yellow color.
  • Dark spots that are a little bigger than the size of a period, which is excrement.
  • And of course, the clearest indication of an infestation is finding the live bed bugs themselves.
