What Do New Bed Bugs Look Like?

If you’ve had a bed bug infestation, you’ve probably noticed that the adult bugs are brown instead of white. This is because the bedbugs shed their skin several times before they reach adulthood. This means that you may have seen them crawling around for weeks before you realize they were in your bed.

Young bedbugs look just like the adult bugs, but they’re smaller and lighter in color. They also only come out during the night to feed. The good news is that you can recognize their presence by the tell-tale signs that they leave behind. Bed bugs feed on blood, so you can notice blood stains on your sheets and bedding. They also leave behind tiny black ink marks.

The odor is the least reliable of the early signs of bedbug infestations. This is because the odor is so faint for humans to detect. Also, most people are not familiar with the scent of bed bugs, so they often mistake it for something else. As a result, most people think of mysterious insect bites as the first sign of bed bug infestations.

The best way to tell if you have a bedbug infestation is to have your home cleaned thoroughly. Using a stiff brush or vacuum cleaner can remove bedbugs and their eggs. Make sure to vacuum the entire area. Also, remove any clutter near the bed.
