Bedbugs get into your home by hitching a ride either on your clothes, luggage, pillows, boxes, furniture, personal belongings, etc. They hide in the small crevices just waiting for the perfect time to come out. You might not even notice them until weeks later.
Have you purchased something used from a garage sale or thrift shop? It is definitely possible that they were hiding in the cracks of the furniture item or in the buttons of the garments you brought home.If you live in an apartment building, they can travel room to room in the pipes and wire holes.
Bed bugs are most often found in the following places:
- movie theaters
- apartment complexes
- dorm rooms
- recreational areas
