The Signs of a Bed Bug Infestation

Apart from seeing the actual bed bugs themselves, there are other signs to look out for which may indicate a bed bug infestation such as:

  • Unexplained bites to the body, often in a line of 2-4, accompanied by a local irritation
  • Unexplained brown blistering to the skin (common bite reaction.)
  • Faecal spotting - small, brown/black spots found on the mattress, duvet or bed itself
  • Blood found on bedding
  • Finding bed bug eggs that are pale white in colour and glued in situe
  • A sweet almond smell can be the sign of a particularly heavy bed bug infestation


If you have experienced any of the signs or symptoms described above, call MANTIS today.  

Bed bug infestations that are caught earlier can normally resolved with a single treatment. However if left untreated, their numbers can increase incredibly quickly and may take more than one treatment to resolve.
