How do Bed Bugs get into my home?

Bed bugs are often carried into a home on objects such as furniture and clothing. If you think you have a bed bug problem, check for live bed bugs or shells in the following areas:

  • Seams, creases, tufts and folds of mattresses and box springs

  • Cracks in the bed frame and head board

  • Under chairs, couches, beds, dust covers

  • Between the cushions of couches and chairs

  • Under area rugs and the edges of carpets

  • In drawers

  • Behind baseboards, and around window and door casings, between the folds of curtains

  • Behind electrical plates and under loose wallpaper, paintings and posters

  • In cracks in plaster, in telephones, radios, and clocks

Bed bugs can also travel from apartment to apartment along pipes, electrical wiring and other openings. If the infestation is heavy, a sweet smell may be noticed in the room.
