Bed Bugs: What Can I Do If I Think That I Have Bed Bugs

If you think that you might have bed bugs, here’s a list of what you can do:

  • Check with other people in the house to determine if they are being bitten by something.
  • Inspect your home focusing on where people sleep.
  • Check the piping along the mattresses and the protective plastic corner caps on box springs.
  • Remove the mattress and box spring completely from the frame and inspect the headboard and where the bed rails attach to the headboard and foot board.
  • Turn over nightstands and look underneath.
  • Inspect baseboards near the head of the bed.
