  • i think you would see a flea right?

    I know I have read and saw on the news that you can't see bed bugs...it was a story about hotel beds

    i hope you figure it out!

  • Definately more likely that it's a flea than a bedbug.

    It seems just so dang odd that it's happening in your home to one child - when they sleep together prettymuch - and so infrequently.
    It is therefore very suspect that it's something else.

    And not to make you really worried, but bedbugs are practically impossible to get rid of.
    Yes, you can see bedbugs. Babies are the size of poppy seeds and the adults are about a 1/4 of an inch. Small, but visible. Fleas are smaller than an adult bedbug and you certainly can see those! (as long as they're not jumping ) the reason you don't usually see them is because they're a bit like roaches... they run and hide when you're moving about.
