Adult bed bugs are broad and flat, oval insects. Before feeding, bed bugs are brown and about the size of a seed. After feeding, they are swollen and red from the blood they have ingested. The nymphs are nearly clear in color and hard to spot. You can spot the blood smears and fecal stains on sheets and mattresses. If you see any evidence, contact a professional bed bug exterminator to get rid of bed bugs in your home.Call Pest Chase

Bed bug bites looks similar to mosquito bites except that a bed bug bite forms a pattern.
Bed bug bites as in a line such as one next to another or one below another. This is because the bed bug looks for vein to suck blood from, at its first bite if a vein is not located, they move above, below or beside and try again. So the bite pattern is usually close to each other and in a line or cluster.
