Bed bugs are certainly something that you will want to avoid; yet despite your best efforts you may end up needing a proper bed bug treatment to get rid of them. Before you enlist the services of Planet Orange for bed bug removal, you may want to confirm that it is indeed a bed bug infestation that you are dealing with. This requires some knowledge with regard to spotting bed bugs, something that we are happy to give you some guidance on.

When to Investigate for Bed Bugs

How to Spot Bed Bugs

The only way to truly know whether or not you have bed bugs is to find a live specimen. There are certain conditions, in which it is possible to determine the presence of a bed bug infestation. If you find that you are waking up with bites on your body that were not there when you went to sleep the night before, then it is time to investigate whether or not bed bugs are causing the problem.

Evidence to Look For

Once you have determined that it may be bed bugs that are causing the problem, there are certain things to look for that can help you confirm their presence. It is entirely possible to search for bed bugs without actually finding any, despite their presence. What you may find instead is the evidence they leave behind, such as fecal stains. These stains are actually digested blood, and they appear black and will smear if you wipe it with a wet rag.

Producing a Live Sample

If you’re feeling brave, you can conduct a visual inspection. You may need a magnifying glass. Unfortunately bed bugs are easily spotted when their growth and colony has grown out of control.
