FLINT, Mich.-- Bed bugs: just hearing the word can make you cringe.
But peak season for the tiny nuisance is just days away.
All In One Pest Control in Flint says it's especially hectic in June because of heat and humidity.
If you're traveling this summer they suggest looking out for a couple signs bed bugs are waiting nearby.
“You're their meal. They feed off you they feed off people and pets. Lift up the mattress and look for any activity between the mattress and box spring or you'll see spots on the walls or headboard,” Kim Barker said.
If you notice small bumps on your skin that's another bed bug symptom.
And if you go to yard sales seal your items in a bag until you throw them in the wash at home.
