Signs of a Bed Bug Infestation

The best defense against bed bugs is to spot the infestation as soon as possible. This will help avoid serious repercussions for your business, such as a damaged reputation, lost income and the costs of dealing with a bed bug infestation.

How to spot the signs of a Bed Bug infestation

As bed bugs can be difficult to spot, it does not always mean that your premises is bed-bug free. The reason for this is that the infestation can be in its initial stage and not always be easily visible. There are some obvious signs and symptoms which, when found, clearly show that there is a bed bug infestation. These are:

  • live bed bugs
  • small blood spots on bed sheets
  • faecal pellets
  • cast nymphal skins
  • a distinctive sweet and sickly smell
  • clients complaining from allergies that can take place due to bed bug bites.

If you have come across any of these signs then you need to take action straight away. Call us on +256 777 090 356 / +256 751 493 293 or email us

In treating and inspecting rooms for a bed bug infestation, our Rentokil technicians also inspect adjacent rooms, as bed bugs can move into rooms adjacent to the one where the initial infestation took place. If bed bugs are found in any of these rooms, we will then expand the bed bug inspection and treatment until no further signs of bed bug problems are found.
