Common Signs of Bed Bug Infestations

Visual Evidence

  • Dark Spots: Look for small, dark spots on your mattress, which could be blood or fecal matter left by bed bugs.
  • Shed Skins and Eggs: Bed bugs leave behind dead skin, eggs, and sometimes their own dead bodies.
  • Live Bed Bugs: Adult bed bugs are brown to reddish-brown, oval-shaped, and about the size of an apple seed.


  • Red Bites: Waking up with tiny red bites on your skin is a common indicator. Bed bugs usually bite during the night, leaving itchy welts.


  • Musty Smell: A musty odor in the infested areas can be a telltale sign of bed bugs, caused by their scent glands.

Where to Look for Bed Bugs

Typical Hiding Spots

  • Mattress Seams and Tags: Bed bugs often hide along the seams and tags of mattresses.
  • Bed Frames and Headboards: Inspect crevices in bed frames, headboards, and box springs.
  • Furniture Cracks: Bed bugs can reside in cracks and crevices of furniture, including dressers and nightstands.
  • Electrical Outlets: Check behind electrical outlets and light switches.
  • Curtains and Carpets: Bed bugs can hide in the folds of curtains and along the edges of carpets.
  • Personal Belongings: Inspect books, stuffed animals, and other personal items.

Life Cycle and Characteristics

Understanding Bed Bugs

  • Size and Color: Adult bed bugs are about 3/16 to 1/5 of an inch long, brown to reddish-brown, and have flattened bodies that swell after feeding.
  • Nymphs: Bed bug nymphs are smaller and pale in color, going through five molts before reaching adulthood.
  • Eggs: Bed bug eggs are tiny, pearly white, and about 1 mm in length.


  • Rapid Breeders: An adult female bed bug can lay 200-500 eggs in her lifetime, leading to quick infestations.
