How to Identify Bed Bugs?
How to Identify Bed Bugs If you spot a bug in your home, it may be difficult to tell whether it is actually a bed bug or not. Bed bugs can be very small, oval-shaped bugs that are reddish-brown in color. A telltale sign of infestation is the smears and stains that bed bugs leave behind on mattresses, box springs, curtains, furniture, and other surfaces where they nest and feed. Additionally, bed bug infestations produce a pungent, sweet, musky smell that will intensify as the infestation becomes more severe.

Where Do Bed Bugs Come From?
Contrary to popular belief, bed bug infestations are not the result of unsanitary conditions or dirty houses. While they may thrive in these types of environments, bed bugs are expert hitchhikers and are often transported by humans and human belongings. For example, you may bring bed bugs home with you if you have recently stayed at another residence or a hotel that was infested with bed bugs. Likewise, if you have purchased used furniture or other household goods from someone that had bed bugs in their home, you may be getting more than you bargained for.
Where Do Bed Bugs Like to Hide?
Because they may be as small as one millimeter long, bed bugs can fit into the smallest nooks and crannies, allowing them to remain largely unseen by the naked eye. While they can hide virtually anywhere in your home, you’re likely to find evidence of them in the following locations:
- Around and inside furniture, such as couches, mattresses, box springs, etc.
- Inside of crevices in lampshades
- In the fold of curtains and bedding
- Behind baseboards
- Inside electrical outlets
- Inside of electronics such as DVD players, clocks, televisions, and radios
- Inside of cabinetry
