Bed bugs can be hard to find for those who aren’t sure what they should be looking for. Even when bites appear, some individuals do not react to them, while others might mistake them for mosquito bites.
Adult bedbugs are roughly the size of an apple seed and are reddish-brown, flat, and wingless. Upon feeding, they swell up and turn bright red. Younger bed bugs go through five stages before reaching adulthood, and at the smallest size are very difficult to spot.
Other signs of their presence include moulted skins, fecal spots on your mattress or bedding, and bloodstains on your pyjamas and sheets.
