Indio Bed Bug Lawyer

California has had a bed bug problem for years and it has only gotten worse in recent years. These critters have now made their way throughout the entire state, including right here in Indio. The Golden State is particularly vulnerable to bed bugs due to the warm weather and the fact that much of the year sees significant humidity, as well. Bed bugs have become resistant to many common pesticides, and an infestation will spread very rapidly. Both residents of Indio and those who visit the city, including people who come for the world-famous Coachella festival, are at risk of experiencing a bed bug problem in their homes. If you believe that you have suffered harm as a result of bed bugs, you may be able to file a claim for damages against the negligent party that caused your harm. Our Indio bed bug lawyer outlines the most common signs to watch for below.

How Do Bed Bug Infestations Develop in Indio?

Oftentimes in Indio, bed bug infestations are caused by negligent property owners. Bed bugs enter homes, apartments, hotel rooms, and even furniture in search of food. The food bed bugs need comes from a warm-blooded host, such as a person or their pet.

Property owners, such as landlords, hotel owners, and people who rent out their property as an AirBNB, can all be held liable for bed bug infestations in certain instances. To hold these individuals liable, you must show that they failed to inspect their premises to prevent an infestation from developing. If you can establish this, you can hold property owners liable even if you did not discover the bed bugs until you got back home.

It is important to note that holding a landlord liable for a bed bug problem is challenging. In these cases, you must prove that the infestation occurred at the time of rental and that you did not cause the problem. This typically means you must identify the problem shortly after moving in. A bed bug attorney in Indio can help.

Common Signs of Bed Bug Infestations

Bed bugs are very small creatures, measuring no larger than an apple seed in most cases. They are also adept at crawling into small spaces to hide. For these reasons, many people do not identify an infestation right away. People often do not even suspect that they have a problem until they awake with the telltale red, itchy bumps on their skin. While this is very characteristic of bed bug infestations, there are other common signs, as well. These include:

  • Exoskeletons bed bugs shed when they molt, which are then left behind in bedding and furniture,
  • Bed bug fecal matter, which shows as rusty-colored spots on furniture,
  • A sweet and musty odor, and
  • Finding the spots after fully inspecting box springs, mattresses, and other types of furniture.
