How do you know if you have bedbugs?

The first sign of bedbugs may be red, itchy bites on the skin, usually on the arms or shoulders. Bedbugs tend to leave straight rows of bites, unlike some other insects that leave bites here and there.
Look also for these other signs:
- The bugs themselves, especially along the seams of mattresses.
- Tiny bloodstains on sheets and mattresses.
- Dark spots of insect waste where bedbugs might crawl into hiding places on furniture, walls, and floors.
- A sweet odor from bedbugs’ scent glands where bedbugs are found in large numbers.
