There are few things worse than discovering that you have a bed bug infestation in your home. You may be wondering how you can tell if your Saratoga County home has been invaded by bed bugs. There are several signs to look out for this spring and through the coming months. If you do discover bed bugs, you’ll want to secure professional pest control immediately. Thomas Pest Services can help put your mind at ease and get rid of the bed bugs.
Warm Weather Bed Bugs
As our weather improves over the coming months in upstate New York, you’ll want to keep your eye open for bed bugs. Bed bugs can survive in almost any condition, but certain factors in summer can increase their presence.
We all know that Saratoga is the summer place to be. With the influx of visitors to our area, bed bugs can be on the rise. It’s natural that when places are more crowded, there is a higher risk of pests. As people come and go from our hotels, shops, concert venues, museums and parks they may carry bed bugs with them. As we visit these places, we may pick them up and carry them back to our homes.
Bites and Other Signs of Bed Bugs
If you are unlucky enough to have gotten bed bugs, you may not notice right away. One of the first signs is waking up with a cluster of bug bites that resemble mosquito bites. The difference is that there will be several bites in one area, often on exposed areas of the skin, such as ankles, wrists, neck, and shoulders, and sometimes around the waistline.
Other signs include:
Staining on your mattress, either from feces or blood stains.
Exoskeletons around the seams of your mattress or box spring.
Apple seed-shaped bugs themselves.
