Did you know K-9 (police style dogs) can sniff out live bed bugs and their eggs! If you believe you have an infestation there are a lot of ways to find out. Dogs are definitely one way, but are pretty expensive. One of the very best ways is by the bites you are receiving. A live bug or the remnants of bugs may not show up for months but those itchy red bumps start within 72 hours of bed bug bites. This is your first clue, but there are several ways to find them if you know what to look for. In the photo you can see cast skins of bed bugs going through their life cycle. They shed skin every time they bite until adulthood, then they can start laying eggs which are the white capsules you see. One female can lay up to 5 - 7 eggs a day!
