How to Tell If Bed Bugs Have Invaded Your South Carolina Home

Bed Bug

Many things can disturb our sleep. For light sleepers, disturbances can come from something as simple as a leaky faucet or soft music playing somewhere else in the house. For heavy sleepers, it usually takes a much louder sound or movement to wake them. Regardless of the type of sleeper you are, knowing bed bugs are infesting your bed is a sure way to lose all thoughts of restful sleep.

Let’s look at what a bed bug infestation looks like.

First, look over your bedding. Do you see any small red stains? If so, these could be blood marks left after bed bugs have eaten.

Second, evaluate your body for any small red bumps; most likely appearing in a zig-zag pattern or a line on your skin, and will be red and itchy. These marks are a good sign that bed bugs are feeding on you during the night.

Third, check the cracks and folds of your bed and around the corners of your room for tiny black spots; these spots are most likely bed bug droppings.

Fourth, look for adult bed bugs hiding around your bedding. You can identify them by their small oval-shaped reddish-brown bodies.

Last, do you notice an aroma that smells oddly like coriander? This smell could be the pheromone trace that bed bugs leave behind.

If you find any of the above warning signs in your home, we have some bad news—you most likely have a bed bug infestation. This may leave you with a pretty big question: "What now?"
