Bed bugs could be in your home without you knowing it unless they’ve been biting you. If you haven’t seen these pests and don’t have bite marks, there are other ways to tell if you might have these pests around. Noticing a certain odor, for example, could mean that you should look into professional Carlsbad pest control services.
Bed Bug Odors
Bed bugs tend to live in groups, which can make any smells they emit more noticeable. If you’ve been smelling an odor similar to coriander or a musty scent, this could indicate the presence of these pests. These smells come from alarm pheromones, which are chemicals that bed bugs release when they feel threatened. Bed bug feces can also produce unpleasant odors in your home.
What to Do About Bed Bugs
What should you do if you have reason to believe you might have a bed bug infestation? Since it’s important to handle infestations quickly, you should reach out to pest control experts for an inspection and treatment. Doing this helps ensure that bed bugs have a lower risk of turning into a major infestation in your home, which is much harder to eliminate. Keep in mind that you’ll need to do thorough cleaning in your home afterwards to get rid of any lingering odors from these pests.
