What are bed bugs? 

Bed bugs are nasty little creatures that hide in tiny crevices around your mattress and then come out at night to feed on your blood when you’re sleeping. Oftentimes, you’ll notice clusters of red marks that look like little bites or a bunch of little bites in a line. This is usually the first indication that you have bed bugs.

If you notice any of these signs, carefully inspect the seams of your mattress, your headboard, nightstands, and mattress frame. signs of bed bugs include discarded shells, rust-colored stains, actual bed bugs, and often a musty smell.
