An all too common problem for many homes in the West Midlands in the appearance of bed bugs in the mattresses and furniture. They often invade your home hiding in the fabric of luggage and are often found in second-hand bought beds and couches. The bed bug problem is not one that’s easy to remove, but the first step, as with all pests, is to identify it.
Here are the most common signs of a bed bug infestation:
- Bite marks that appear during your sleep on exposed parts of your skin,
- Droppings in the form of small black dots on your bed linen and furniture
- Specs of blood or bed bug moults on your bed
- Small white eggs in gaps on your bed and furniture.
Sometimes, a bed bug treatment can be done by thoroughly washing your linen and clothes or attempt to vacuum them out of your furniture, but with larger infestations, a more direct approach is necessary. To ensure a comprehensive bed bug removal and to help you avoid the problem in the future, calling a specialist is the best option.
