Cool Weather Brings Increased Bed Bug Activity – Do You Know What Their Bites Look Like?

Bed bugs are showing up in more places around NJ. It’s important to know what their bites look like, so you can hire a Tom’s River bed bug exterminator right away. If you’ve been waking up with strange bites, keep the following in mind.

Signs of Bed Bug Bites

Having bites on your body when you wake up could be a sign of bed bugs. However, there are other pests that can leave similar bites. How can you tell if you’re dealing with bed bugs?

Bed bugs leave bites that can cause welts to develop, although this isn’t always the case. These welts can appear right away or several days later. They typically have a reddish appearance and might be swollen and itchy. You might have these bites on any part of your body where skin is exposed, such as your arms.

Other Bed Bug Signs

Bed bugs leave other signs of their presence. You might find small dark spots on your bedding from when they feed or when they leave feces behind. You might also see these bugs on your mattress or in other areas of your home. Key point here is that bed bugs can hide just about anywhere in your home.

If you might have bed bugs in your home, contact Allison Pest Control as soon as possible. We can send a Tom’s River bed bug exterminator to your home to eliminate them.
