Where Do Bed Bugs Hide?

Where are the bed bugs hiding?

Bed Bugs are nocturnal by nature and stay out of sight during the day (unless you’re sleeping). They are hiding all day long and can be very difficult to find even in a severely infested room/ home. These bugs are so thin that they can fit into very small spaces, like between joints of furniture. If you have a bed bug infestation they will hide in the following areas:

  • mattress seams
  • box springs
  • bedding
  • head boards
  • furniture
  • behind baseboards
  • under carpet
  • under tack strip
  • walls
  • ceiling
  • electronics
  • picture frames
  • clothing
  • shoes
  • luggage
  • under clutter

If the infestation is severe, you may see bugs during the day. There is almost no place in the home that bed bugs can not go. This is one reason why it is so difficult to get rid of these vile vampires, and why it is nearly impossible to do it yourself. Please call the professionals, it will save you time, money, and sleepless nights.

If you try treating the bed bugs yourself, then the bed bugs can be spread to areas where they are not normally found such as kitchens, bathrooms, hallways, linen closets, attics, wall voids, and within the framing of the house.

The more clutter there is in the home, the more places the bugs have to hide. Bed bugs may be impossible to treat in a “hoarding” situation – no matter what method is used. Cleanup of clutter is always recommended in order limit their hiding places and to perform an effective treatment. If the clutter is not removed, then it can be impossible to treat the home properly (and legally). We must follow all directions provided on pesticide labels, otherwise we are breaking the law. We cannot spray pesticides on clothing, bed linens, kids toys, pet toys, or in food or feed areas.
