Your bed is a place that you want to be clean, comfortable, and 100% free of bed bugs. Even thinking that you may have bed bugs may be enough to make you feel uncomfortable sleeping in your bed. Thankfully, there are certain signs to look for that may indicate that you have bed bugs. If this is the case, be sure to call a professional right away to have them deal with these unwanted pests. 


If you notice small white spots on the edges of your mattress, this could be a sign that you have a large infestation of bed bugs. These white spots are groupings of eggs, and it means that a lot of bed bug larvae will hatch soon. The best way to tackle this issue is to call a professional right away so that you can get rid of those bed bugs before they hatch.

Bug Shells

Like other bugs, bed bugs will shed their skin as they grow bigger. This shedding leaves behind a shell that is visible to the human eye. If you find these shells, then this may indicate that you have a bed bug infestation. If you find what you think is a shell, but you aren’t sure, it is still best to be cautious and have a professional check it out. 

Rust-Colored Stains

The poop that bed bugs produce is a rust color, so if rust-colored stains begin to appear on your mattress and/or sheets, this is not a good sign. It is an indication that a lot of bed bugs are pooping, thus creating these stains. A professional can confirm whether or not these stains are from bed bugs, and will get started removing them as soon as possible.
