If you’ve ever been to a hotel or used furniture store, you’re familiar with bedbugs. These insects can also be brought into your home in clothing and luggage. They’re also known to inhabit daycares and are often found in daycare clothing and furniture. These insects can live in any place that has a warm, dark area, and they like to nest in mattresses, pillows, and the folds of curtains.
To look for bedbugs, start by looking inside upholstered furniture. Look for cracks and crevices, and check under the fabric and seams. In particular, recliner chairs and sofas are common bedbug breeding areas. Don’t forget to check behind book bindings as well.
You can also use a vacuum cleaner to catch bedbugs. However, make sure the vacuum has strong suction to eliminate any bugs that may have survived the trip down the vacuum pipe. It’s also a good idea to seal the vacuum bag with tape. This will prevent the bugs from escaping.
If you have a bedbug infestation, it’s important to get rid of them as soon as possible. If you suspect that your home is infested with bedbugs, contact a professional exterminator to get rid of them.
