    Bed bugs? Are they small?

    Bed bugs tend to head towards our faces at night because they like the carbon dioxide that we breathe out while sleeping..

    Check your bed..under the bed....for black specks.

    Do your sheets have any blood stains?

      Bed bugs are not easy to find.  I had an infestation and did not see it until one night I turned on the lights...while I was sleeping and felt something and lifted my pillow and many scattered away.  I was mortified.

      I look for the suckers all day long.  And NEVER see them...they hide in small crevices and the wooden frames under matresses.

      We emptied our house of carpets, pillows, comfortors...curtains...sheets...used sprays had an inspector....None found after that.

      This happened about 1 year ago...the other day I was brushing my teeth and when I leaned in sink....a bed bug fell out of my hair....I had been sitting in the living room in the dark watching TV.

      I had moved my sleeping area to the couch when the infestation began until I got a new bed.  I assume the eggs traveled there....I'm hoping you DONT have them......but just sayin...they are not easily seen.

      Hi yushan...about 2 weeks before we noticed the boyfriend was sleeping in the same bed with me and getting bit like crazy...We didn't know it was the bed.  He was insisting it was....I wasn't getting bit and I told him he was crazy!

      That night I woke up and saw those things...I was shocked...its possible he was giving off more carbon dioxide than I and they went after him.  He had moved to the couch and I think when he did..he transferred one or maybe just an egg. 

      I came out to well...we got rid of bed and started calling pest control people and doing was a frigin nightmare.

      I hope you don't have them...its just something mysterious about your bites...and if you can't figure out what they are from...I am just suggesting you investigate this.

      Also bed bugs used to be very common in the 50-60s....part of my parents chores were too clean and vacuum under the beds everyday to minimize the bed bug colonies.

      It has been in the US papers that these "bugs" are making a big comeback in places like New York....and I live in Rhode Island and the pest control guy said they get alot of calls about them now.

      We are not dirty people...and it is not a signal of that...they came in on a matress...that my son brought in the house....and we weren't aware of they start I have no idea....but they are a HUGE problem.
