5. How to tell if you have bed bugs or carpet beetles
It can be difficult even for a trained eye to tell a bed bug apart from a carpet beetle, but fortunately their young look different from each other. Carpet beetle larvae look fuzzier and burlier than bed bug larvae. Bed bug larvae look a bit like tiny worms.
9. Can bed bugs hurt me?
Bed bugs are annoying and gross, but the good news is they probably won’t put you in any real danger. They do not transmit diseases to humans and the damage they inflict on your property is typically minimal. Bed bug bites do cause allergic reactions (including anaphylaxis) in some people.
