It can be scary to think about your body being picked at by tiny brown bugs while you sleep, but they don’t have to take over your home. Bed bugs can be prevented. First and foremost, always make sure you inspect any furniture or clothing for any signs of bed bugs, because one can turn into hundreds. While you are cleaning your home, be sure to inspect it visually. Bed bugs are known to be around other bed bugs. They like to hang around their host. A host can be something like the corner of a wall or the base of your sofa. That’s why it can sometimes be hard to realize that you even have a bed bug infestation. Also, be aware of yellowish flakes around your home. These flakes are caused by the bed bugs shedding their skin before they reach adulthood.
Just like a mosquito bite, bed bugs bites can cause small red bumps that can swell. They have similar symptoms like itching. However, some people don’t show symptoms at all. If you fall asleep and wake up with several small red bumps, it is unlikely that a single mosquito would be able to cause that. It may be a sign you have bed bugs. Another way you can determine whether you’ve been sleeping with the enemy is if you ever notice red spots on your sheets that look like they might be blood. They are blood stains, and they are caused your body crushing the bed bugs while they are sleeping.
