Bed bugs    K-9s   

Let's say you woke up this morning with tiny red bumps on your limbs or across your back either in clusters or a few in a line. Let's assume you have heard of bed bugs, and you immediately ran to the internet on a quest to know more about these bug and specifically how to detect bed bugs. If you're a Google fan, you probably quickly learned to look for:

  • Rusty or reddish stains on bed sheets or mattresses caused by bed bugs being crushed

  • Dark spots

  • Eggs (which are tiny--about 1 mm) and pale yellow skins that nymphs shed as they grow larger

  • Live bed bugs

Let's imagine you're the kind of person who likes to dig deeper. You scour pages of information from what you believe are the most reputable sources on the worldwide web and learn: 

  • Bed bugs leave dried bloodstains on sheets. That's what those rusty stains are.

  • You learn that those dark spots are excrement stains, and that black excrement is often found on the corners and seams of mattresses and box springs as well.

  • You even know what eggs and bed bug looks like now.

Assuming you're smart, and we know that you are, you would definitely be able to determine whether or not you have a bed bug infestation. But there are a few things you need to know about these infesting bugs:

  • They can be eating you for a long time before you notice them. Bed bug larvae are as small as the tip of a pen and their bites don't generally leave a noticeable rash at first. The longer your skin is exposed to the anticoagulant these bugs use to thin you blood, the more chance you'll have of getting a rash.

  • Bed bugs are great at hiding. As an infestation grows in your house, it can be easy to miss. These bugs often come out only at night, when CO2 levels rise.
