If you of anyone who has ever dealt with bed bugs, you know they are the last thing you want sharing your sleeping space at night. Read on to find out if you are going to have to worry about bed bugs this fall.

How Bed Bugs Move Around

The truth is, bed bugs can neither run fast or jump high even though they have six legs in all. Instead, they use stealth and a little bit of acrobatics to get from place to place. More specifically, they cling to items we carry around in the hopes they will eventually be transported to a place close to where people lay their heads.

If you put two and two together, this indicates a few things.

The more active we are, the more bed bugs have a chance to move around.
More often than not, you or someone you know are the cause of a bed bug infestation in your home.
Bed bugs are not significantly affected by the weather outside because they go directly from climate-controlled buildings to other climate-controlled buildings.

Signs to Look For To Identify Bed Bug Infestations

We hope that your home does not have a bed bug infestation. However, we would like to offer you the knowledge needed to find out. Here are some signs to help determine if you are sharing your bed and home with bed bugs:

  • Small dried blood spots left on and around sheets
  • Black specks (fecal matter) in the cracks and crevices around your bed
  • A musty smell in the air
  • Tiny white casings around mattresses
  • Six-legged, reddish-brown, oval-shaped bugs

Any of the above signs could mean you have an active bed bug infestation in your home.
