Where Are Bed Bugs Found?
If you’re wondering where bed bugs come from, remember: bed bugs are excellent hitchhikers and are easily transported. Bed bugs are small in size and can hide anywhere. But being in the potholes, dark and small crevices is their favorite place. Basically, they prefer to reside near the human environment. Where are bed bugs found? Most often found in bed parts, such as mattresses, box springs, and folded areas and other areas such as:-
- Behind the Photo frames.
- Down the Baseboards.
- Under the wallpaper.
- Under the switchboards.
- Between the furniture cracks, and so on.
- beneath the bed.
- under your cars, trains or any public travels.
Bedbugs are active mainly at night and usually bite people while they are sleeping. They feed by piercing the skin and withdrawing blood through an elongated beak. The bugs feed on three to 10 minutes to become engorged and then crawl away unnoticed.
Most bed bug bites are painless at first but later turn into itchy welts. Unlike flea bites that are mainly around the ankles, bedbug bites are on any area of skin exposed while sleeping. Also, the bites do not have a red spot in the center like flea bites do.
People who don’t realize they have a bedbug infestation may attribute the itching and welts to other causes, such as mosquitoes. To confirm bedbug bites, you must find and identify the bugs themselves.
