Bed Bug Overview

Bed bugs are small, reddish brown insects. The pests bite you to feed on your blood, and they like to hide in your bed since the location gives them proximity to their food source. Bed bugs are also found in drapes, sofas and furniture cracks. In some cases, they hide underneath wallpaper and carpet. Once the creatures have infested your home, you may notice an unpleasant sweet smell. In addition, they may leave stains on your bed linens and the other fabrics in your home.

Bed bug bites are similar to other bug bites, which can make them hard to distinguish. However, bed bug bites are red, and if you have one, then it may have a dark, red speck in the center. A bite can be itchy, and you’ll likely see them on your face, arms and neck. Some people are allergic to bed bug bites, which may result in the formation of skin blisters or hives. Be sure to visit your doctor to receive treatment for an allergic reaction.
