Unlikely Places Bed Bugs Could Be Living

You know bed bugs hide in mattresses, box springs, and bed frames, but these are far from the only places you may find them. You can find them in the items they used to hitchhike into your home, such as luggage, duffel bags, and backpacks. These may be places you expect to find them. But bed bugs can hide in strange places you might not expect them to be. If you're aware of the places bed bugs hide, you may be able to get rid of them.

  • Bed bugs have been found in alarm clocks, computers, televisions, and other electronics.
  • Bed bugs hide behind baseboards and crown molding.
  • Bed bugs get into wall outlets and find their way into wall voids.
  • Bed bugs hide under carpets.
  • Bed bugs have been found in many types of furniture, including wood furniture with gaps and recesses.

When you go looking for bed bugs, be sure to look in these unlikely places where bed bugs hide. If you find bed bugs or evidence of bed bug activity in your Charlotte home, the next step is to eliminate them.

How To Eliminate Bed Bugs Quickly

If you lift a mattress and find a group of bed bugs huddled together in an area the size of your thumbnail, you may be able to quickly suck those bed bugs up if you have a vacuum ready. You can also use a vacuum to get into cracks and crevices to suck bed bugs up. Your vacuum is a great tool for eliminating bed bugs. Here are two more ways that work well:

  • If you find bed bugs in clothing, bags, or other items that can be put through a 30-minute dryer cycle, you can use heat to eliminate those bugs.
  • If you find bed bugs in an item that can't be exposed to high heat, cold could be the solution. Bed bugs can be eliminated when items are sealed in plastic bags and put into a freezer for four days.

There is a chance that these methods will arrest your bed bug infestation. If you continue to have issues, however, it is best to contact Go-Forth Home Services for bed bug remediation. We provide industry-leading bed bug control in Charlotte.

Frequently Asked Questions About Bed Bugs

You can learn a lot from reading answers to frequently asked questions about bed bugs. Here are a few common questions we get:

What are bed bugs?

They are almost exclusively indoor insects that live near people. They feed on blood and hide in tight spaces and dark voids.

Do bed bugs spread disease?

They have the ability to spread disease but there are currently no known cases of real-world bed bug-to-human transmission. The health concerns with bed bugs are related to the numerous itchy bites they cause and the loss of sleep that can result from a bed bug infestation.

Where do bed bugs come from?

These bugs travel from location to location by hitchhiking in luggage, bags, clothing, boxes, furniture, and other items.

Do bed bugs bite during the day?

While normally nocturnal, bed bugs may bite during the day if they have to in order to survive. Bites will occur in dark spaces as bed bugs are averse to light.
