Telltale Signs Of A Bed Bug Infestation

Bed bugs are not always easy to identify. They only become easy to identify after they have been present inside a home for several months. As to avoid waking up one day to a severe infestation, here are some subtle signs of bed bugs to look out for around your home. 

  • Blood stains
  • Fecal droppings
  • Shed skin
  • Oval-shaped, reddish-brown bugs
  • Eggs

These clues are often difficult to spot. If you would like help identifying these pests, call EcoTech and ask about our detailed pest inspection services. 

How And Why Bed Bug Infestations Get Worse With Time

All bed bug infestations start with the help of a person. These bugs use items people carry to get from place to place. They might enter your home on or inside a backpack, an article of clothing, or even a television.

Once indoors, these pests will hide inside wall voids, cracks, and other secluded areas. At night, they will emerge and feed on the blood of humans and pets. This gives them the nutrients to repopulate. The only thing limiting their growth is access to blood. Since these bugs only need a tiny amount to become full, they don’t need much to survive or breed. In other words, as long as there are living creatures inside your home, your bed bug infestation will continue to grow.
