Signs of Bed Bugs

Although there is not an official “season” for bed bugs, East Boston, MA residents may notice their numbers increasing in the spring and summer. If you suspect a bed bug problem, call Yankee Pest Control.

Some infestation red flags include:

  • Blood stains on sheets and/or pillow cases
  • Dark brown or red spots on bedding, walls, or floor; this is excrement from the bugs
  • Egg shells or shed skins in the folds of curtains, bedding, or other fabrics
  • An unpleasant musty odor caused by the bugs’ scent glands
  • A trail or pattern of multiple small red bites on your body

A pattern of bites on your skin is a clear sign you have an infestation of bed bugs. Areas with apartment buildings and multi-family homes are prone to bed bugs. Bed bugs can be commonly found in used furniture and clothes, and can easily migrate between apartments.
