A woman in Australia didn’t understand raspberries when she discovered her bed was riddled with mysterious black spots.
I posted on Facebook about the strange find. Images of black dots on the bed frame were quickly identified as bed bug excrement by her followers.
Several people have also noticed some brown reptiles in the photos.
– blood spots
It actually turned out to be bed bugs.
One of the most obvious signs of bed bugs is feces — that is, excrement — in the bed.
It is often discovered as very small black spots, usually in the seams of the mattress.
This smell is bad news!
And women aren’t the only ones who have had this problem in the bedroom.
Bed bug infestations have exploded in Australia recently, according to News.com.
The growing problem poses no direct health risks to humans, because they cannot spread disease.
They can still be very unpleasant in the home, pest expert Julien Bracewell tells the website.
Bracewill studied photos of the bed bugs discovered by the woman, and said the pests are well developed:
— they seem to have reached full maturity, he told News.com.

Bed bugs hunt for human blood. They are attracted to carbon dioxide, thus catching people’s breath.
Usually the first signs, Bracewell explains, are that you can see bloodstains on the mattress and bed linens.
Another characteristic is bites or a rash on the body.
If you notice a sweet smell, you should also do a thorough examination in bed. The smell could be a sign that there are hundreds of bed bugs in your home.
Bed bugs secrete pheromones. These are the chemicals bed bugs use to communicate with each other, Marin Trons Christiansen, a claim advisor at Norsk Hosup Forsering, told Dagbladet in March.

If you can smell this odor, it means that bed bugs have evolved to be numerous.
– Only when bed bugs multiply by the hundreds can we smell this. And if it smells a lot, you’ve had bed bugs for some time, Anders Ack, senior researcher at FHI, previously stated.
How to remove them
Bed bugs are insects that usually appear because you brought them home, for example from a holiday trip.
They may be more difficult to get rid of than other pests, but it is not impossible.
If you have bed bugs in your home, you should contact a pest control company to help remove them as soon as possible.
– burn it!
Pest control technicians often use a combination of traps on the bed and sofa legs or sticky tape. The insects will then get caught in the traps when they try to forage or hide, according to Marin Trones Christensen.
Once you get rid of bed bugs, it is important to avoid bringing them home.
The expert’s top tip for prevention is to keep bags and luggage closed on vacation, and put them as far away as possible from the bed and sofa. Use the luggage carrier if there is one in the room.
