One of the most irritating and frustrating pests is bedbugs. They reproduce very quickly, can go months without food, and can hide in almost any small space. These bugs are slightly larger than an apple seed, but do not cause allergic reactions in most people. If you suspect that you have bedbugs, contact a pest control company.
Because bedbugs are so small, they may not feel like they are biting you. However, depending on the location and your sensitivity, they can cause a severe reaction. Unlike other bugs, you will not wake up from a bedbug bite. If you think you feel their bite, take a look at your skin.
The most common symptoms of bedbug bites are itchy red welts. However, these are not the only symptoms. Some people experience a stinging or pinpricking sensation without any welts. In addition, many people also feel itching or a tingling sensation. In extreme cases, they experience blisters and fever.
In addition to a bite, bedbugs can leave behind dark specks of feces. Sometimes, bedbugs will also leave rust-colored blood spots. These blood spots could be from bedbugs feeding, or from their feces. You may also notice a sweet musty smell in a room that has an infestation of bedbugs.
