  • A bed bug and/or a nymph may be involuntarily brought in from other infested homes on a visiting person’s clothing or baggage.
  • Any infested items (such as furniture, clothing, or backpacks) brought into a home, hotel, motel, or any other type of living establishment.
  • Bedbugs are increasingly found in air travel.

Bed bugs do not live on the skin of their host, but do feed on animals and of course humans. Here are some signs to look for:

  • Bug marks
    • Although bed bug bites look similar to those of a mosquito bite, bite marks are one of the first indicators of a possible bed bug situation.
    • The site of the bug mark is itchy and red and you may see several of these marks on the skin.
  • Bed bug stool
    • Stool stains are brown in color and occurs after feeding from someone’s blood.
    • This is the next thing to look for when you have a clue that you may have bed bugs.
  • Blood
    • Because bed bug feed three times of their body weight and an average of every three hours for their blood meals, another sign would be blood stains.
