Where Do Bed Bugs Usually Hide?
Bed bugs are nocturnal and mainly active at night, so what happens when the sun comes up? Bed bugs do not usually crawl for long distances and don’t have wings, so they tend to stay near potential blood meal hosts. Evidence of where bed bug infestations may be found in a bedroom includes the bed frame, mattress, and box spring. Bed bugs are only attached to hosts’ bodies during blood feeding. Between blood meals, bed bugs can also be found nearby in the future, behind wallpaper, and under the edge of the carpet. Their flattened shape makes it easy for the parasites to quickly hide in cracks and crevices, including walls, wood floors, electrical outlets, and other narrow spots inside and outside your home or another area.
While bedrooms tend to harbor more bed bugs than other household locations, it should be noted that they can hide anywhere people tend to sleep or rest. Some other hiding spots include Cushions in movie theaters and airplanes, seats in buses and cabs, chairs in break rooms, storage areas, offices, or lounges with upholstered furniture. To minimize the risk of a bed bug infestation, consider taking precautions such as putting your purse on your lap instead of on the ground at an airport and placing luggage in the bathroom on a hard, uncarpeted service in hotel rooms until you inspect the room for any potential signs of bed bug activity.
