About Bedbugs
How Do I Know I Have Bedbugs?


  • A lot of time bedbugs can easily be missed, but if you have a bad infestation and look carefully you will see them. Usually they are around the back of the headboard, in the mattress seam, and sometimes even crawling across the bed.

  • You will get bitten; bedbugs feed on blood, so they will bite you. As a result of this, you may come up in a rash or redness, indicating that you have bedbugs.

  • You may find blood spots on the sheets and pillows which means you have accidentally squashed the bedbug on its way back to its harbourage.

  • Black spots around the back of the headboard and on the mattress would be their dried faeces.
