Signs you have a bed bug infestation

Bed bug bites - if you wake up covered in small, itchy, red welts, there is a good probability you have an infestation. Bed bug bites are painless in the beginning. As time passes, they become itchy and irritating. Consult with your general physician if you experience any symptoms.
