Bed Bugs may vary slightly in appearance, color, or shape and depending on the insect's current size, stage in life, and whether or not they have recently fed. A bed bug's appearance can vary even to the extent where an identified bed bug may appear, to unfamiliar eyes, to be a different bug altogether.
Detection of bed bugs will be required during infestation as well as after initial treatment efforts. And the difficulties associated with treating bed bugs as well as the possibility of reinfestation means that detection has to be an ongoing process.
Bed Bugs may vary slightly in appearance, color, or shape
Daily periodic monitoring for their signs is a good idea even up to several months after an infestation has been cleared or as a preventive measure in suspected areas. It is recommended to search throughout all cracks and crevices (on beds, couches, chairs, furniture, etc. checking underneath as well) using a flashlight to search for signs of bed bugs or for the bugs themselves.
And, when searching a dark room at night, bed bugs may be spotted crawling about looking for a blood meal but will usually remain completely stationary congregating in ideal hiding spots nearest to the host.
If awakened during the middle of the night, it is also optional do a quick search for bed bugs using red LED night vision lights as opposed to regular white flashlights - with red LEDs being less bothersome to night eyes.
Detection of bed bugs will be required during infestation
Red LED lights are normally used by campers or hikers to read maps in the middle of the night without agitating their eyes or harming their night vision but are applicable to the searching for bed bugs in the dark as they can help prevent from waking light sleepers and will also allow an awakened person to return to sleep easier.
