Once nearly eradicated, bed bug infestations have become increasingly common in the United States since the 1980s, likely as a result of increased global travel and trade, changes in available pesticides and possibly pesticide resistance. Once associated with crowded, deteriorated housing conditions, bed bugs infestations in the finest hotels and even a famous Times Square movie theater have made headlines. Whatever the reason for their resurgence, bed bug infestations are difficult to treat and exceptionally easy to transmit to other locations.
What Are The Signs And Symptoms Of A Bed Bug Infestation?
The tell-tale bite marks on the face, neck, arms, hands, and other body parts is generally a tell- tale sign that you might have a bed bug problem. Unfortunately bed bug bite marks may take up to 14 days to develop in some people so it is important to look for other clues when determining if bed bugs have infested an area. These signs include:
• bed bugs “skins” (exoskeletons after molting)
• finding bed bugs in the fold of mattresses and sheets
• rusty–colored blood spots on your mattress
• sweet, musty odor, which can smell like ripe raspberries
