When You Have Bed Bugs
The only way to be certain that you have bedbugs is to find them. There are other signs to look for, like new bumps or bug bites that appear overnight, blood smears on your sheets, rashes and skin irritation, bed bug feces in seams of your bedding (small, reddish specks) and moltings, which are light brown in color. In larger groups, these bugs produce a sickly sweet smell similar to overripe raspberries, which can also lead you to suspect an infestation. Still, ultimately, the only way to be positive you have bedbugs is to find living bugs where they’re hiding.
