Quick Bed Bug Identification
Before you can schedule bed bug extermination in your Philadelphia, PA home, you may want to know for sure if you do have a bed bug infestation.
Bed bugs are between five and seven millimeters in size, with flat, long, oval-shaped bodies. They often appear brown in color, but they can also have a red-brown color after they've consumed blood. Recently hatched bed bugs, however, are tiny in size and appear a white or light yellow color.
Some bed bugs are even translucent. If these small bed bugs haven't fed, they are almost impossible to see with the naked eye. Bed bug eggs are a pearly white color and about the size of a pinhead.
To properly identify bed bugs, look for reddish or rust-colored stains and streaks on your sheets and linens. Check for small, dark spots as well. Lift up any folds in your mattress and examine the cracks and crevices for these signs or for bed bugs themselves. If you don't see bed bugs in your bed, check your couch cushions, curtain folds, and drawers. Another sign of bed bugs you should look out for is small bite marks on your body.
