Bed bugs are tiny pests that love hiding in tight crevices. Any space larger than two millimeters is a potential hiding spot for these creatures. In order to effectively get rid of bed bugs, you need to know where they hide and how to find them. If you have a bed with bed bugs, you should begin your search at the mattress.
You can use a flashlight or flat edged object to check cracks and joints around the bed, and to examine the bottoms of drawers and frames. You should also inspect drapes, loose wallpaper, and the insides of picture frames and alarm clocks. Once you have identified the suspected locations, you can hire a professional to exterminate bed bugs.
During the day, bedbugs are inactive. They feed on blood at night, when the host is sleeping. Their hiding places are less visible during the day, but you can still check for them if you notice any bites during the daytime. This will give you a better idea of how serious an infestation is and how to deal with it.
Bed bugs do not leave trail pheromones, but they are attracted to certain scents. The scent of a person can attract bed bugs, so be sure to keep the room clean.
