Bed bugs earned their name for good reason. These little pests love to make their home in your mattress, burrowing into the cracks and crevices and only coming out at night when you are sleeping in order to bite you for sustenance. If you suspect you have bed bugs in your North Carolina home, your bed is the first place you should check–but there are plenty of other likely locations in your home that might be harboring bed bugs.

Expand your search to any upholstered item in your home. This includes couches, sofas, easy chairs, and ottomans. They could also squeeze into the cracks of your floorboards or along your wall boards. You’ll want to start by examining furniture closely, looking for dark brown or red staining (blood) or the dried husks left behind by adult bed bugs. If you see either of these, you’ll know for sure that bed bugs have been there and are probably still active.  If you don’t see any of these signs but are still waking up with bites on your skin, you’ll want to call in an expert team to find your infestation.

One of the hardest parts of getting rid of bed bugs is just finding them in the first place.
