Common Places Bed Bugs Live
If you want to find a bed bug infestation, look in the places that are close to resting humans, but still provide shelter or a hiding spot. If you suspect a bed bug infestation, we suggest checking these places first:
- Mattress piping
- Pet beds
- Pet kennels or carriers
- Electrical outlets
How often do bed bugs feed?
Unlike some other insects and animals, bed bugs don’t actually have a set feeding schedule. Their feeding fluctuates depending on population availability, time of day (although this can vary), temperature and humidity, and life cycle.
If the home is cool, bed bugs can survive without a meal for over a year. That’s quite a long time, especially if you don’t know you have an infestation! This is just one of the reasons we recommend professional extermination for bed bugs. You can’t rely on bed bugs to die off or go away on their own.
Can you have a bed bug infestation and not know it?
Yes! In the beginning stages of bed bug infestations, you may not feel or notice a problem. Here are just a few reasons why:
- Not everyone has a physical reaction to bites.
- It’s true! Just like mosquitoes, some people have mild allergic reactions to bed bugs, and some do not.
- Bites are not a good indicator of an infestation, and could in fact be another insect.
- Bed bugs are good at hiding.
- There’s a reason why bed bugs like the locations that they do: it prevents people from removing them!
- Bed bugs are very small.
- It seems really obvious, but this is a huge reason why some infestations can grow over time.
- While bed bugs are visible to the naked eye, it takes deliberate attention to find them.
- You’re better off looking for other indications, like brown clumps on the mattress, pale yellow egg casings, and red stains on fabric.
