4 Bedbug Signs And Symptoms
Live Bed Bugs: If you find a live bug, it’s clear you have either an ongoing infestation or the beginnings of one. As a quick review, if you find a live bed bug, it will typically be flat, oval, and thin. Like any rule, there are exceptions, of course. After a large meal, they can appear rounder and elongated like a cigar. After a blood meal, they will also appear more reddish in color.
Skin Castings: As mentioned above these blood-sucking intruders must molt five times during their life cycle. Molting is when the bug grows beyond the size of its exoskeleton and must shed it to continue growing. The first time this happens is after an egg hatches out and the new nymph has its first blood meal. After molting and feedings follow this until maturity is reached. The leftover “skin casting” as they are called is a sure sign of bed bugs. A casting is light and opaque and can be hard to spot without the aid of a good flashlight.
Bed Bug Rash: The first sign is itch. Bed bug rash beginnings with an itch but the rash will not be obvious yet when you feel the itch. The bitten are more-itchy than mosquito bites. Sometimes you will feel its sting. The itch will only be felt about an hour or so after the skin has been bitten. This is because of the anesthetics in their saliva. There are inject anticoagulant and anesthetics, to keep off blood clotting, before it sucks blood from your skin.
