Look for these Signs of Bedbug Infestations

These are signs that you have bedbugs: 

  • Molting. These shed exoskeletons may be visible near hiding spots such as mattress seams, bed frames, and baseboards.
  • Musty odor: A strong, musty odor may be present in areas with a significant bedbug infestation. This odor is actually the release of pheromones by their scent glands. 
  • Live bedbugs: Although bedbugs are small and adept at hiding, you can still spot them in areas where they congregate. Bedbugs are reddish-brown, oval-shaped insects, roughly the size of an apple seed. They hide in mattress seams, bed frames, headboards, upholstered furniture, and in other cracks and crevices.
  • Eggs: Bedbug eggs are tiny, white, and translucent, making them difficult to see with the naked eye. However, if you have a magnifying glass, you may be able to spot eggs on surfaces where bedbugs lay eggs. Look in mattress seams, box springs, or behind furniture.
