Bed bugs are small, oval, brownish insects that live on the blood of animals or humans. Adult bed bugs have flat bodies about the size of an apple seed. After feeding, however, their bodies swell and are a reddish color.
Tiny and agile, the common bed bug can be anywhere in bed frames, behind wallpaper and even inside electrical outlets and go undetected for months.
The bed bug is an insidious parasite. It can be especially difficult to eradicate. Bed bugs come out at night to feed on the blood of their host, most likely while they are sleeping. They hide in crevices in the bed or behind baseboards or headboards during the day. Certain factors have been identified as increasing the likelihood of a bed bug infestation: travel, buying used furniture, moving into a new apartment, and having pets such as dogs or cats that travel into different environments.
Bed bug bites vary in appearance but most often appear to be in a line or a cluster of three bites that appear to be in a straight line on the skin. The bites usually do not itch and are sometimes mistaken for mosquito bites or other insect bites and vice versa. Bites can on rare occasion become infected resulting in swelling and redness surrounding the bite.

Signs you may need Superior Colorado Bed Bug Exterminators
If you are seeing bites, it is possible that you have bed bugs. It is not always easy to tell if you have an infestation, but there are some signs that can help you figure out what is causing the bites.
- Tiny red or brown spots from their droppings: Bed bug droppings are very small, about the size of the tip of a pen. They are usually light brown or red. If you have found spots that look like these and they are in places where you sleep or sit for long periods of time (like your couch), then it is possible that you have an infestation of bed bugs.
- Shed skins: Bed bugs shed their skin as they grow larger. If you see little white pieces on your sheets, pillowcases, etc., then it could be a sign of bed bugs.
- Bites: Bites are the most obvious sign that a person has been bitten by bed bugs. These bites do not always show up immediately after they bite though. It can take a few days for them to appear, so it is important to keep an eye out for them over the course of several days. The bites look like little red bumps, often in lines or clusters.
- A sweet musty odor in your bedroom.
