to find Bed Bugs?
Considerations, Before you begin looking:
And Discovery Begins!
Among the common items you will find are human skin debris, hair, coins, food debris, tissues, pet toys, etc and etc.
Anything that looks like an insect or is indeed an insect would require a closer inspection.
Among the first tell tale signs of Bed Bug presence are their excrements or feces. These are produced as black liquid that in time dries up. On a non absorbing surface such as finished wood, it would dry up as an extruding black dot. In an absorbing material it may burst into the fibres of the material as ink does on fabrics.
Next you may see Bed Bug skin sheds. These can be mistaken against the Carpet Beetle Larvae skin shed. So keep the specimen for a second opinion.
Depressions at the corners of Box Springs particularly on the underside are the most common nesting spot for Bed Bugs. Next, along the mattress tufts and piping is where Bed Bugs feel comfortable to nest.

Factory Drilled Holes
Factory drilled holes in our bed frames is a common nesting spot for Bed Bugs. These holes are spacious enough to hold several adult Bed Bugs and dozens of Eggs. These holes could be in the sides, backs or the under side of wooden elements of our bed frames. A bed may need to be dismantled to be able to moved in such a way so that we can look directly into these holes.
