Bed Bugs Are Back

Even just a few years ago, bed bugs were a distant problem, something one encountered in the third world, not here in the United States. In fact, they were almost completely eradicated in the developed world by the 1940s. This is no longer the case, though. Bed bugs are back. And the worst part is that you and your home can get them from almost anywhere.

Bed Bugs Can Come From Almost Anywhere

The only way to be certain that you have bedbugs is to find them. There are other signs to look for, like new bumps or bug bites that appear overnight, blood smears on your sheets, rashes and skin irritation, bed bug feces in seams of your bedding (small, reddish specks) and moltings, which are light brown in color. In larger groups, these bugs produce a sickly sweet smell similar to overripe raspberries, which can also lead you to suspect an infestation. Still, ultimately, the only way to be positive you have bedbugs is to find living bugs where they’re hiding.
