View our infographic for a quick overview of where bedbugs like to live and breed.
Signs that you have bedbugs
These little bugs are resilient and can live just about anywhere. Here are signs that you can check for if you think you have bedbugs.
Rusty or reddish stains on bed sheets or mattresses caused by bed bugs being crushed
Dark spots, which are bed bug excrement and may bleed on the fabric like a marker would
Eggs and eggshells, which are tiny (about 1mm) and pale yellow skins that nymphs shed as they grow larger.
Live bed bugs
If you believe that you have bedbugs you should contact a professional as soon as possible. Bedbugs reproduce quickly and become more difficult to exterminate the longer they go untreated.
