WHAT ARE SIGNS OF BED BUGS?
For most people, the first sign of a bed bug problem may be waking up with unidentified bites. Unfortunately, bites from a bed bug can resemble bites of other insects and the culprit must be found.

Life-Cycle-Close-up_EMI
• Live Bed Bugs: Look for live bed bugs in any stage of development. (You may not always find a live bed bug).
• Fecal (Poop) Stains: Appear to be minute “ink dots”, (like from a black marker pen), can be found anywhere and is often mistaken for mold.
• Cast Skins: These are when the bed bug grows out of its skin and leaves the old one behind.
• Blood Stains: These spots may look like rusty spots on bedclothes, sheets, furniture and walls.

WHERE DO BED BUGS HIDE?
• Bed bugs are commonly associated with areas where we sleep or rest but are easily spread and found in adjacent rooms.
• In mattresses and box springs (seams and creases)
• Headboards and bed frames
• Carpet edges, base boards, molding, cracks and crevices behind and around bed
• Switch plates and electrical outlets, loose wall paper, picture frames
• Upholstered chairs, nightstands
• Piled up clothing or any cluttered areas

DO BED BUGS SPREAD DISEASE?
Bed bugs are not known to cause or spread disease.
• When feeding, they inject anesthetic and an anti-coagulant from their saliva which can cause an allergic reaction for some.
• Some people show no reaction to bed bug bites.
• They will bite any exposed area of the body, such as the face, neck, arms, and hands.
• The bite is usually not felt but can result in small, flat or raised bumps, red swollen and itchy skin.
• They have been known to cause sleeplessness, stress and mental anguish.
• Bed bugs can rarely be identified by the appearance of the bites alone.

Bed Bugs are known to be one of the most difficult pests to eliminate. It is important to find them in the earliest stages for quick elimination.
