Web MD Weighs In On Bed Bug Identification


Bed bugs are getting more common in many parts of NJ, so it’s important to be able to identify them. What do you need to know in order to tell if you need pest control in Monmouth County for bed bugs? Keep the following bed bug information in mind.

What Bed Bugs Look Like

Bed bugs are tiny insects that have a flat, oval shape before feeding. After they’ve fed, they appear to have a rounder or more swollen shape. These bugs have a brown coloring that typically becomes more reddish after they feed. Bed bugs are roughly the same size as apple seeds.

You might see these insects on your mattress or bed linens, especially in creases and crevices. They can also be anywhere else in your home that provides them with a good hiding place.

How to Identify Bed Bug Bites

If a bed bug bites you, its bite marks might appear as reddish welts. You might develop them right away, or they might not show up until later on. Bed bug bites can be itchy for some people, but they don’t always cause this reaction. You’re likely to find these bites on parts of your body where your skin was exposed.

If you’re getting bitten by bed bugs, you’ll need professional pest control in Monmouth County. Contact Allison Pest Control for more details about our bed bug services.
