Where Bedbugs Hide

Customers often wonder what they could have done to avoid a bed bug infestation. The truth is, infestations aren’t always due to property owners’ errors. Bed bugs can travel from location to location via clothing, furniture, or other belongings from the infested site.

Once on the scene, bed bugs like to hide in your bed frame, headboard, box springs, and mattress. You can also find them under area rugs, inside dressers and night tables, within curtain folds, behind pictures on the wall, and even inside electronic components.

Watch for dark brown or rust-coloured stains on mattress pads, bedding, box springs, or other areas listed above. In some cases, you may see actual bugs on the premises. Once you do, call us right away.
