Bed Bug Inspection

The first sign that bedbugs may be causing a problem is the experience of having to scratch while sleeping, or noticing multiple small, itchy, mosquito bite-like red welts on the body.

How To Do An Inspection For Bed Bugs?
Bed Bug Inspection
A close inspection of the bed sheets and other bedding may uncover the occasional blood spot left by a crushed bedbug. But much more likely seen will be very small dark, sometimes rust-colored dots that indicate fecal matter from the bedbug. They're about the size of a period on this page. Inside the box springs or perhaps behind the head board there may also be the residue of hatched larvae shells or dried larvae skins.

Because of their quickness and aversion to light (bedbugs are strictly nocturnal insects) it is unlikely that you will be able to see them actually on the bed or its coverings.

Bed Bug Traps And Bed Bug Monitors:

There are a number of different baits and traps which can be purchased at hardware or home supply stores to help catch and identify bedbugs. Their main purpose, though, is only to identify the problem. Eradication of a bedbug infestation is best left to a professional.

Check the bed
Bed Bug Inspection
Are you squeamish? Better wear gloves. Strip back the covers and look for blood spots on the sheets. Stand up the mattress. Remove the box spring and flip it over. There is no way to find bed bugs in a bed unless you do. Inspect both carefully. Check every seam.

A prime location for a bed bug is resting upside down on the underside of the box spring where the box rests on the bed frame. Look inside the box spring, too. Shine a flashlight through the gauze fabric on the bottom of the box spring. You may even have to remove the stapled fabric to inspect inside.

Also check the head board, if there is one, and look inside anything and everything that is stored under the bed. Bed bugs can hide inside shoe boxes.

Check the rest of the bedroom
Bed bugs aren't limited to beds, and your inspection shouldn't stop there. Concentrate on furnishings close to the bed. Pull out dresser drawers and check inside the drawers and in crevices. Like cockroaches, bed bugs like to squeeze into narrow spaces. Look under televisions, stereos, and other equipment, behind pictures, in the crevice behind the baseboard, and even in stacks of clothing. Bed bugs are often found hiding in tack strips under wall-to-wall carpeting and behind baseboards. Be aware that bed bugs tend to crawl upwards. Also check drapes, wall decorations, and cracks in the ceiling-wall junction.

Check the furniture in all rooms
Bed Bug Inspection
Bed bugs hitchhike on clothing, purses, and the like from the bedroom into other rooms. Many people spend as much time on the couch or in an easy chair as they do in bed, so always check for a secondary bed bug infestation in living room and family room furniture. Remove the cushions. Check seams and crevices. Tip back the couch and chair and look underneath, particularly behind skirts and at the seams.
