How Do You Get Bed Bugs?
You may be wondering: how did I even get bed bugs? I keep my residential or commercial property immaculate! Well, cleanliness doesn’t really have anything to do with it. What does? High-traffic.
The #1 way bed bugs find their way into homes and commercial settings (like hotels, motels, retirement homes, etc.) is through travel. Where there are a lot of people, there’s a lot of blood, and that’s what these little bugs feed on.
These small bugs can hide in small spaces where they’ll have access to their food source. That’s why they are often found on headboards, mattresses, box springs, and other spots where they can easily feed during the night.
How Can You Tell If You Have A Bed Bug Problem?
Aside from bites on your body (which can look a little bit like flea bites), how can you tell if you have bed bugs?
- Look for the bugs themselves. They’re small and brownish (reddish after feeding,) and tend to hide in places like under mattresses and box springs, behind head boards, and in the edges of the carpet.
- Check for black pepper looking spots on your sheets and furniture.
