A new product hitting the market this week makes it much easier to tell if you have a true bed bug infestation (or are just being paranoid--or getting scammed by an 'exterminator') and it already has the skeptics at Bedbugger.comsinging its praises.
First, a quick brief on a crucial point: One of the easiest ways to detect the presence of bed bugs is through fecal staining (bed bug poop) which looks like dark little dots on your sheets and mattress. The trouble is, it can be hard to tell what's what if you're not an expert--and even experts can have trouble making an accurate confirmation.
The kit is portable (good news for those trying to avoid picking up bed bugs while traveling -- orapartment hunting...), and consists of a bottle of solution, detection tape and cotton swabs: Swab the mysterious spots, rub the it on the detection tape, dab some solution on and wait for the result, pregnancy-kit-style--only in this case, blue means it's time to panic. Check out the videoto see how it works.
