Be Aware of Signs and Symptoms of Bed Bugs

Nowadays bedbugs have become a very common thing in most homes in Canada. Quite often people do not realize that they exist in their home. Since they can be rarely seen during daylight and even at night too, they remain hidden under the mattress. They will come out only when you are sleeping and the lights are usually switched off.

Bed bugs will not pose any serious health problems like mosquitos. However, people may feel uncomfortable due to their presence and your night sleep may often get disturbed because of them.

Therefore, it is necessary that as soon as they enter your household and start multiplying, you must be aware of them so that you can take necessary measures to get them removed.

Following are a few signs:

  • Tell-Tale Bites:

Often people start getting the feel of bites, and every bite may not always be a sure sign that bed bugs are present, however, that should at least alert you about the presence of some little ‘bug’ that is around. Almost 70% of people never show signs of any bed bug bites.”

  • Smell:

If the infestations are severe then you may get sweet/sour smell.

  • Skin or Feces:

Often bed bugs can leave remnants. You may notice small black specks present on your mattress, or bed frame. They may occasionally leave their skeleton.
