How to Identify Bed Bugs?
If you haven’t seen a bed bug before, you might not be able to identify them. Bed bugs are small, reddish brown insects without wings so they don’t fly but they can move quickly over floors, walls, and ceilings. They have an oval body shape and are flat unless they are filled with human or animal blood. During the day, they hide and don’t come out until the lights are off. The females can lay hundreds of eggs, no bigger than a speck of dust at first which makes it difficult to spot them. Additionally, you can also smell them as they have a musty sweet smell and you might be able to notice this odd odor in your room or house. When it’s real bad you can even hear the crunching sounds as you step on the dead skins they have shed.
