Weird Places To Find Bed Bugs
January 13, 2014
Think you might have bed bugs? If so, you’re not alone. Every week we get many phone calls from homeowners saying “I think I have bed bugs!” If you suspect you could have bed bugs, it is wise to take a close look at the rooms of your home to see if you spot any of these bugs or the signs they leave behind. How do you know if you have bed bugs? Here are some places to check for bed bugs within your home; some are rather typical while others are a little weird and not places you would think to check for these blood sucking insects.
Check not just on the bed but around the bed. The bed frame, the mattress, the box spring and bedside tables are all popular hiding places for bed bugs.
Look behind light switches and electrical outlet covers. These are somewhat unexpected places but still popular hiding places for bed bugs.
Computer keyboards, especially older models are large enough for bed bugs to hide inside. They may slip between the keys and come crawling out at you when you least expect it.
Your clothing. Bed bugs are known for hiding in the seams of clothing so even though you don’t realize it, you could be carrying bed bugs around with you right now.
Your closet. If bed bugs are in your clothing, there is a good chance they are hiding in your closet too.
