Could I have bed bugs?

Rate this topic

Recommended Posts

My son was exposed to bed bugs in a hotel 3 1/2 months ago.  Since we found out I’ve been checking his bedding and mine several times a day including our mattress and tore apart his box spring as well (extreme anxiety).  I have found nothing. The only skeletons I find are carpet beetles.  Would you say I am safe to say we do not have bed bugs.

If you are not seeing bite marks on your family members you are likely bed bug free. You may want to think about a call to an exterminator for your own peace of mind.  As Scott said they can be tough to get rid of and they don't always hang out just in beds.
