Health Tip: Did the Bedbugs Bite?

Learn these warning signs

(HealthDay News) -- It's best to spot bedbug infestation at the earliest opportunity, when it's probably easier and less expensive to stop.

The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency offers these telltale signs:

  • Stains that appear rusty or reddish on bed linens or a mattress.
  • Actual bedbugs.
  • Tiny eggshells, eggs or yellow-colored skins shed by bedbugs.

Bedbugs also may hide in areas such as seams or folds of furniture, cushions or curtains, drawer joints, loosely hung wall decorations or inside appliances.
