Where Will I Find BedBugs If My Annapolis Maryland Home Is Infested?
The most obvious way to tell if your Annapolis home has bedbugs is by their bites. Red, itchy and painful bumps will appear on your body in straight lines or zigzag patterns. If you notice these kinds of bites, it is really important that you check your home for bedbugs.
Where Do They Typically Hide?
They like to hide in thin dark areas. Since every home is different, there are multiple places that you should check:
● Seams around your mattress and box spring
● Baseboards and door framing
● Electrical switch plates
● Mirrors and picture frames
● Under wallpaper and in the seams
Bedbugs are nocturnal, so the best time to check for them is during the day when they are hiding. If you are checking for them, make sure to bring a flashlight, gloves, and a magnifying glass. It’s also a good idea to bring tweezers or forceps and a jar so you can collect a sample of the bugs to investigate further.
Signs That You Have Bedbugs
Other than their presence in your home, there are some other clues that you have bedbugs including:
● Little blood stains on your sheets or pillowcase
● Dark, rusty looking spots on sheets, mattresses, clothes, and walls indicating bed bug excrement
● Offensive, somewhat musty odor from their scent glands
● Eggshells or shed skin in areas where they hide.
If you have any of these signs, you probably have bedbugs.
Are They A Danger To My Family?
Bedbugs do not transmit any serious diseases, however they are a serious annoyance. They infest very quickly and will feast on you and your family at night. They leave behind very unpleasant bites that can lead to infections and skin rashes. They also reproduce quickly and are disgusting.
