Health Tip: Infested With Bedbugs?

(HealthDay News) -- When bedbugs share your living quarters, they can cause itching and skin irritation. Knowing their warning signs can help you treat the infestation and get back to sleeping tight without letting them bite.

The Environmental Protection Agency mentions these common signs of bedbugs:

  • Tiny dark spots that may stain your mattress or linens.

  • Tiny white eggs or eggshells.

  • Tiny shedded skins.

  • Living bedbugs in your mattress or linens, in the seams of the mattress or in cracks of the bed frame and headboard.
