Have you ever wondered that why there are brown filthy spots on your mattress? Some people have mistaken those brown spots as the age of the mattress. It is a myth that the mattress cover starts getting brown when it starts getting old. To some extent, it is true as well. But in reality, that brown spot is living proof of the presence of bed bugs in your house.

The bed bug is a tiny insect of brown to red colour. It is considered a common pest present in our homes. It is usually found inside the furniture such as bed, sofa, stool, bench etc. It feeds on the blood of human beings. It usually attacks at night.

It can grow its colony quickly. Their colony can create extensive damage to your property and mental peace. They can infest one room and then spread to the other within no time. They can even invade your kitchen, wardrobe and other interiors.

Despite their blood-sucking habit, bedbugs have been considered inoffensive to human health for a long time. But it is proved through researches that they are responsible for spreading “Chagas disease”. It is also known as “American Trypanosomiasis”. Depending on the intensity of the disease, it can cause acute illness and even leads to death. Its symptoms include:

  • Flu
  • Fever
  • Fatigue
  • Diarrhoea
  • Vomiting
  • Appetite loss
  • Rashes
  • Swelling
  • Abnormal glands

Researchers have been implied that the chronic stage of Chagas diseases may be as painful as HIV AIDS.

Other health concerns related to bedbug include skin allergies, blisters, redness etc. Moreover, if the infestation not treated in time, it can lead to severe mental illness.


When it comes to leaving the signs and symptoms, bedbugs are clever enough. They hardly leave any visible mark of their invasion. But some little symptoms are enough to identify the seriousness of the problem, including:

  • Brown stains in or around your mattress cover or on your bedsheet.
  • Little blood droppings on your furniture covers.
  • An unpleasant smell in your room, especially in the bedding area. The odour is similar to the smell of fungus.
  • Biting marks on different parts of your body.
  • Itching eventually turned into marks and blisters.


If you ever face these consequences do not waste your time trying home remedies to kill bedbugs naturally. You might kill them with your DIY methods but you cannot waste those who are in their egg, nymph or immature state. There is a huge possibility that you may feel comfortable after killing them with your home remedy. But after some time, the damage creates by them will be non-refundable. So, it is better to call the pest control company to exterminate bed bugs and their traces from your house.
