Bed Bugs Symptoms

Bed bug symptoms

The problem with bed bugs symptoms is that not everyone has the same symptoms! And because most bed bug bites happen at night, when you’re fast asleep, you may not even know you’ve been bitten at all. In fact, it can take anywhere from 2 days to 4 weeks AFTER you’ve been bitten for symptoms to occur. As a result, the bedbug bites may go unnoticed, or be mistaken for other insect bites or sensitivity to other items.


But because bed bugs have been discovered to harbour 28 different human pathogens you will want to know as soon as possible whether you have an infestation.

What are the more common bed bugs symptoms?

One of the more common symptoms is itchiness. So if you see your child scratching or rubbing their skin, take a closer look. Sometimes a bed bug bite can start out as small bruise that then becomes red bumps, and often the bumps can be in clusters of three (commonly known as breakfast, lunch and dinner!). And after a couple of weeks the skin can become noticeable darker.

If anyone in your family is prone to skin conditions such as eczema, the results can be much worse- with sever redness and itching which can put kids at risk of a bacterial infection if their scratching causes any breakages in the skin.

Or if anyone in your family has a hypersensitivity to insect bites, the proteins in bed bug’s saliva can cause also sever itchiness and pain.

But because up to 40% of people don’t have any symptoms at all to a bedbug’s bites, there are other things to look for too, which may indicate an infestation.

As well as marks on your body, other signs of a bed bug infestation can be tiny blood specks on your bed sheets and even specks of bedbug faeces on or around your bed.

There can even be a certain sweet smell that can indicate a bed bug infestation.

And if you’re lucky (or unlucky) bed bugs can sometimes be seen by the naked eye, particularly at night when they are more likely to be moving, looking for their dinner- you!
