  • Wake up with itchy areas that you didn’t have when you went to sleep
  • Finding small blood stains on your sheets or pillowcases
  • Bedbug excrement –  Dark or rusty spots on sheets and mattresses, bed clothes, and walls.
  • Bedbug faecal spots, egg shells, or shed skins in areas where bedbugs hide
  • An offensive, musty odour from the bugs’ scent glands
