If you ever find any of the following signs of a bed bug infestation in your home be sure to call an exterminator right away to have them properly disposed of. The longer you wait, the worse the problem will get!

Bed Bug Shells

As bed bugs grow they will shed their exoskeletons, which look just like themselves, except they will be clear.

Blood Stains

Since bed bugs feast on blood they will generally leave behind blood stains that are, unfortunately, your blood, if you have been bitten.

Fecal Stains

Bed bug poop stains will appear as dark brown or black smears or specs on your sheets or other bedding. As bedbugs.net states, “Because bed bugs generally feast on the blood of their hosts, creeping out of hiding places at night to latch on, some people think that fecal stains from the insects should at least be tinged with the color of blood. This is not, in fact, the case. Fecal spotting tends to resemble smears or stains, which are dark brown or even black. This is because the blood has been digested and excreted.”

Symptoms of Bed Bugs

Bed bugs bits can be cause for concern because they will be itchy, unsightly little marks. Bed bugs will generally feast in a straight line on your body part, resulting in numerous bites, that include the following symptoms:

• Raised welts
